I had the opportunity to finally go to Munich, and it was definitely an experience. It is one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever been to, and has some of the most unique styles of architecture I’ve ever seen. More importantly, it’s got a lot of great places to drink world-famous German beer. It’s not hard to grab a beer with a scenic view. If you ever get the chance to go to Munich, go. You can grab a bed at The Tent for a measly 12 euro a night and catch the tram into the city center for some great views, food, and beer.
This is the view outside Nymphenburg Palace. It is a massive garden with lakes and a lot of scary ducks. The inside of this palace is incredible. See it for yourself.
Munich’s Viktualienmarkt is full of stands of anything you could possibly want. Come Christmastime, this is where the world’s largest Christmas Market is.
New Town Hall in Marienplatz is one of the coolest buildings I’ve ever seen.
Another view of New Town Hall.
Hofbräuhaus is a touristy place to grab a beer, but has a lot of history nonetheless. This place is always poppin’ with live music and happy, drunk people. This is a 600 person dining hall on the second floor. This place was sold out when we tried to make a reservation, so go for it quickly.
If you’re looking for less touristy place to have a beer, go to Augustiner-Keller. It is a massive beer garden with a lot of delicious food and an awesome atmosphere. The largest Beer Garden in Munich is Hirschgarten, but Augustiner-Keller is my favorite.
Alter Hof is the former residence of Louis IV. It is right by downtown so a quick stop wouldn’t hurt.
Sankt Lukas Church peering over the trees. One of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen.
The interior of Sankt Lukas Church is just as beautiful.
One of my favorite buildings I saw in Munich was the Maximilianeum. This palace has a unique and gorgeous architecture. Also, we couldn’t get in because we were dressed like scrubs and everyone else was in a suit.
I was just happy to be in its presence honestly.
Overall, Munich is an amazing city with some great beer and a lot to see. I recommend trying to get into as many of the cool-looking buildings as you can, as they are just as beautiful on the inside.
So where should you stay while in Munich? I’m very biased and am going to tell you to stay at The Tent.
