The Olympic Park, Hofbräuhaus brewery, Viktualienmarkt food market – there are some places in Munich that everyone knows. When you're visiting for the second or third time though, you might want to see other places. The Bavarian capital has lots to offer away from the throngs of tourists.
Let’s go! 306 steps up the Alter Peter church
You will be rewarded with a breathtaking 360-degree view over Munich if you make it to the top. The Alter Peter church is the perfect starting point for your city trip.
On the roof of the Technical University of Munich you can eat some great food, in good weather you can see the whole of the Alpine mountain chain and you can enjoy the sunset with a drink in your hand – it feels like a mini holiday.
Enjoying the sun at the Westpark in Munich
Whereas it's almost impossible to find space to sit in the Englischer Garten in good weather, the Westpark in Munich impresses with its urban wilderness, hidden green spaces and one or two special features, such as the café "Gans am Wasser" (https://www.gansamwasser.de).
A cosy atmosphere awaits you in the Hofbräukeller restaurant in the Haidhausen district – both inside the rustic building and outside in the shady beer garden. Are you planning a short break to Munich? You can get to know the city properly here.
The former hunting lodge is the perfect place to relax and to forget the stresses of your everyday life.
Experience the Elisabethmarkt market in Schwabing
You can experience the typical cosy Munich atmosphere here, gorge yourself on some treats and then, at the end of your city trip, take one or two specialities home with you.
You can save spending money on a tourist bus on your city trip. The tram lines 19 and 27 run past numerous sights and the bus line 100 stops right in front of the surfers on the Isar river.
Surfers on the Eisbach river at the Englischer Garten in Munich
No matter the weather – you can always find surfers and spectators at the wave on the Eisbach river by the Haus der Kunst art museum – the perfect place to take a break from sightseeing.
