Planning Your Visit
How many days to spend in Munich?
If you're just going to tick the city off the list, then 3 days will satisfy any tourist's sightseeing needs. But for a more relaxed trip and to really get to know the city, a week's stay will be much more suitable.
Where to stay?
With public transport being so efficient, location depends on what you want your experience to be. If you want to be close to the main sights, then look for something in Altstadt. For a more modest budget, look in Ludwigsvorstadt near the Hauptbahnhof and the Oktoberfest grounds. Or if you're in the city for the nightlife, then Schwabing, Maxvorstadt, and the Gärtnerplatzviertel-Glockenbachviertel areas will be your best bet.

What people are saying about Munich
Wow! This tour was absolutely amazing. In my opinion, the premium tour is definitely worth the extra $$. Our tour guide, Ursula was fantastic and really made the experience great. We had a good group of people and the weather was beautiful. The actual castles were phenomenal and the history behind them was interesting. I’m so happy my partner and I decided to do this tour. I would definitely do it again in the future!
We had a wonderful time on our food tour. Our guide was very nice and very knowledgeable. The food was delicious and I learned quite a bit even though it is not my first trip to Germany. She even was very accommodating with one member of our party who had mobility issues. I highly recommend this tour!
Great place, amazing views ! Take the shuttle to the castle, there are special viewing place near it's stop.
