Blogposts coming soon! In the meantime...

MUNICH RECOMMENDATIONS:

  • Beer gardens! Duh :) We went on a tour that took us to:
  • Stay: Wombats City Hostel - very short walk from the train station!
  • Day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle (Sleeping Beauty's Castle) in the German Alps
  • Hofbrauhaus - famous beer hall. I was actually kind of grossed out by this but it's famous so at least check it out!  In the summer it's nicer to be outside at a beer garden, though
  • Glockenspiel - a little underwhelming but if you have some free time check it out
  • English Garden - beautiful gardens!  There's even a nudist section ;) I'd go here as part of a bike tour. Make sure you go to the surfing part of the garden also.  Also stop at the beer garden if it's nice 
  • Dachau Concentration Camp - :( about a 1/2 day trip from Munich
  • Do a walking tour to get familiar with the city.  If you stay at a hostel there are a handful of options usually.  We did the beer garden one at night through Wombats & I couldn't recommend it more.
  • Mike's bikes - YOU MUST DO THIS! Without a doubt the best thing we did in Munich.  You get to see the entire city & it is soo fun & informative.  Do it.
