Start your holiday on a high note at the top of the Neues Rathaus tower, a giant structure on Marienplatz in the heart of the Old Town. Stick around until 11am for some classic Munich entertainment: the city’s medieval Glockenspiel, a chiming clock which is located on the New Town Hall tower. The clock’s show attracts thousands on a daily basis and is a must-see for a short break in Munich.
Feeling cheered, point your feet in the direction of elegant Ludwigstrasse and stroll along Munich’s grandest boulevard. Once you’ve checked out Ludwigskirche and dramatic Ludwig-Maximilian University, take a right into the English Garden (Englischer Garten), one of Europe’s largest urban parks and a great place for lunch during weekend breaks in Munich.
Grab a table at the Chinesischer Biergarten (Englischer Garten 3) or head indoors to the Chinese Tower Restaurant. Whichever you choose, take note of your unique surroundings: it’s the only beer garden in the world to be built around a pagoda!
The English Garden is located right in the heart of the bohemian, culture-rich Schwabing district. After lunch, try BMW Welt (Am Olympiapark 2) for a fascinating insight into Germany’s most famous car brand, or immerse yourself in art in the Museum Quarter.
If you want to keep your Munich short break cheap, retrace your steps back to Altstadt, taking some time to stroll around the city’s historic heart – it’s only a 20-minute walk away.
Up for an evening of good old-fashioned Bavarian merriment? Hofbräuhaus (Platzl 9) in the city centre is just what you need. Munich’s oldest brewery has been operated by the same family since 1644, and this huge drinking hall is the place for stein-juggling waiters and hearty Bavarian food – prost!
Late night in the beer hall? Blow away any trace of the morning after with a brisk hike round the park at Schloss Nymphenburg (Schloß Nymphenburg 1), 30 minutes by bus from Marienplatz. You also shouldn’t miss out on the Nymphenburg Palace, one of the city’s most visited sights – this magnificent Baroque palace is best seen by guided tour.
A short walk up Hirschgarten Allee takes you from the palatial Nymphenburg to the bustling Hirschgarten (De-la-Paz-Straße 71), which is one of the world’s largest beer gardens, with seating for 8,000.
Next, catch the bus back to Marienplatz for some serious retail therapy. The city centre streets are mainly pedestrianised, so take your time to stroll down Theatinerstrasse and the Fünf Höfe shopping arcade for designer stores, or find quirkier fare on Kaufinger Strasse.
Alternatively, head to medieval Sendlinger Strasse, in the heart of Altstadt, for local arts and crafts.
Last night of your Munich holiday? Change it up a bit and leave the beer halls behind to have dinner at Michelin-starred Atelier Gourmet (Rablstraße 37) in Steinhausen.
If it’s too early for bed, hit celebrity-magnet P1 (Prinzregentenstraße 1), one of Germany’s best-known clubs. Too rich for your taste? Try laidback Ksar Bar (Müllerstraße 31) instead.
