    Handy, Inexpensive Guest Apartments

    by

    While there are several guesthouses and apartments run by A1 Wohnheime in Munich, this review is specifically about A1 Apartments Lindwurm 70. We were able to book a studio with full bathroom and double bed (plus a cot for Minifrosch) online for EUR 58 per night. We were fortunate enough to get a room on the top floor with a balcony, refrigerator, and hot plate (but no microwave). While other reviews have complained about the reliability of the free Wi-Fi, we had no problems whatsoever, and were actually able to use Skype video chatting multiple times without a problem. Do be aware this is a guest apartment and not a hotel, so there is no maid service or breakfast included. There are three grocery stores, a bakery, and a "backstube" within easy walking distance of the apartment, so breakfast wasn't a problem for us. Overall, service was just fine, and the apartment was comfortable and inexpensive. We would definitely consider staying here again if we were able to get a similar deal.

    Unique Quality: - Guest apartment in nice neighborhood (Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt)
    - Convenient to Poccistrasse U Bahn station
    - Wi-Fi in rooms at no extra charge
    - No maid service or breakfast

    Directions: In the Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt section of Munich. Literally steps away from the Poccistrasse subway entrance (U3 and U6).

What to Wear in Winter

by zeta185

Hi- Me and my husband will be in Munich early Feb. We are going back and fourth on winter jackets. We want to blend in. He is convinced that wearing a Northface Down Jacket. I saw a wool jacket. Suggestions??

Re: What to Wear in Winter

It might get rather cold in early February around Munich !
So a Down Jacket could be a good idea as well as the proposed wool-jacket!
Have a nice stay!

Entirely agree.

There is absolutely no need to worry about fitting in.

As in any European town/city you will see people wearing a whole variety of clothing, and hardly any oif them will care what you (or anyone else) is wearing. Just wear what is right for you and the weather.

For me, Munich in Feb would definitely warrant my down jacket!

Wool is not rainproof and takes ages to dry when wet. I'd think twice about that. Bring something rain- and windproof with warm lining that keeps you warm and dry in both rain and snow.

As for "blending in", a) you are in a city full of tourists from all over the world so you can wear whatever you like, b) people will notice anyway that you are not Bavarian, c) who cares, d) Germans are practical people and many wear outdoor gear in cities, too, to cope with uncomfortable weather conditions.

I agree with Kathrin -- Munich weather in February will likely be cold, wet, and windy. I would recommend a warm Gore-Tex jacket and a good sweater for your wardrobe.

And don't worry about "blending in." You won't. (but not to worry -- Munich is a relatively safe city, and unless you abandon all common sense, you will have difficulty getting into trouble unless you go looking for it.)

Wool would not be warm enough, from someone who bought a new wool coat for Germany and almost froze to death on my first day there! (first ever visit so was naive). Agree wholeheartedly with down, and wear light long sleeved tops underneath as I found the inside of buildings very warm. Long sleeved cotton tops are ideal, or a shirt. Layers are the way to go.

Go to the Deutsches Museum.
On a Sunday, board a raft and travel down the Isar.
Try the Augustiner Keller! Living in a beautiful house about 30km south of Munich and travelling 3 stations by train every morning to work.

St Michaelkirche interior.

Sorry about this pic's quality. Camera's 'no flash' setting truly deteriorates the image, but this interior was incredibly moving, a must see when in München. Photographs of wartime destruction found inside this magnificient church.

Beer Gardens: Full Service or Self Service?

by travelfrosch

Another issue that confounds some tourists is figuring out which tables get what kind of service in beer gardens. I remember sitting at a table for 45 minutes one time, only to discover I was sitting in the self-service area!

There are three types of beer garden service: I'll call them "Full Service" (you get beer and food from a server), "Mini Service" (you get only beer from a kellner/kellnerin and buy your own food at "schmankerl" stands), and "Self-Service" (you get up and get everything yourself). Many smaller beer gardens are one type exclusively. The clues to look for are stands serving food and/or beer to customers. If you don't see any "schmankerl" stands, it's probably full service. If that doesn't work, sit down and observe what the other guests are doing: e.g. if they're getting up empty-handed and coming back with beer, you do the same.

On the other hand, many larger beer gardens have a combination of service. If you see an area marked "SB" or "Selbstbedienung," this is the self-service zone. If all of the tables in an area are covered with tablecloths, then these tables are full service.

One final note: some beer gardens allow patrons to bring their own food, as long as they buy beer. Some don't. When in doubt, observe the regular customers and see what they do to figure out what's acceptable.

Get your tix in advance

by Henkster

Many people come to Munich to watch the famous FC Bayern in the Olympiastadion!

Don't forget to buy your soccer tickets in advance - they are VERY popular! People lining up to get tickets for FC Bayern München (best German soccer team) games.

Visit the former concentration...

by drmorf

Visit the former concentration camp which is now a museum and memorial at Dachau. Take the train to Dachau, and then there is regular bus service to the site.
