ski wear

by baron1970

Hi!
Where can I find ski wear and skiing accessories for children and adults ın Munich for good prices? Which German branbs would you recommend?

Re: ski wear

by christine.j

Have you tried Aldi? They had some specials last week, if you're lucky there's still something left. Then there's Tchibo, actually a coffee shop, but they sell lots of different stuff as well. I don't know about the quality of their ski wear. Their running wear is ok, not the very best of course, but good average quality.
If you want to go to a sports store, I can recommend Sportscheck.

I would always check with Sport Scheck (already recommended) and Sport Schuster. They are surely not the cheapest shops but good.

Karstadt department store in the pedestrian zone (close to Karlsplatz/Stachus) also has wintersport department.

Outside the very city centre Sport Kaindl in the suburb of Bogenhausen is known for great prices:

Travel Tips for Munich

Miscellaneous Tips...

by Donna_in_India

Meeting New People and Seeing New Sights

These tips are based on my last 8 weeks of traveling in Europe/Africa:

1. Buy/pre-order as many museum/attraction tickets online as you can.
2. Ask the taxi fare before taking off in a taxi, especially if it’s late at night or coming from an airport.
3. Charge your camera batteries every night.
4. If you have a Eurail pass and need to make reservation make them in Europe. It’s a lot less expensive.
5. If you’re climbing a few hundred steps up a tower, monument, etc. go only a clear, sunny day.
6. Learn at least Hello, Thank you, and Goodbye in the foreign language of the countries you are visiting.
7. Turn your cell phones off inside churches, museums, etc. If it rings and you must take the call, do it outside!
8. If there’s a running commentary (live or recorded), be polite and be quiet.
9. Dress appropriately and be respectful in churches.
10. If you’re traveling with children, don’t let them disrupt others around you. If they cry or throw a tantrum, take them outside.
11. If you have a complaint, do it reasonably without yelling and cursing.
12. Regarding pictures:
a. If there are signs saying “No pictures”, don’t take pictures! There’s a reason for the signs. Do you really, really need that picture of Mona Lisa to prove you’ve seen it?
b. Learn how to use your camera before the trip. If there are signs saying “No flash”, make sure you know how to use the camera without it.
c. If you see a couple or family with one person taking pictures of the other(s), offer to take a picture of both/all of them. Maybe they’ll reciprocate.
13. Check local holidays. Since many museums and stores will be closed, you’ll need to have other plans for the day. (Most stores throughout much of Europe are closed on Sunday.)
14. Don’t try to do too much. Leave some open time to just explore.
15. You’re on vacation so relax and have a good time!

enjoy the 'crowd' and variety...

by Malecka

enjoy the 'crowd' and variety of people that are admiring Marienplatz... you will too!!! : )))
Go to the English Garden, and spend a day there. Lovely park, (more than just a park to be honest), go to the Chinesische Turm, and have a beer in one of those cute little bier-gartens.

Sendlinger Tor

by bugulma

In the end of Sendlingerstrasse, when you go from Marienplatz, you can find Sendlinger Tor. It was built in 1318 and with Isartor and Karlstor they are the three towers that we can see nowadays. The tower had a middle high tower as well, but in 1808 was torn down. In 1906 the three archs in the tower were built that we can see in present days.

Why is Everything Decorated WHITE & BLUE?

by pedersdottir

Many visitors to Munich know the colors of the German flag are black, red and gold. The colors and Germany as a nation came together in 1871. Yet that flag is rarely seen.

Munich has been the residence of the Wittelsbach family, Dukes - and later Kings - of Bavaria since 1255 and the capital of Bavaria since 1506. Through the Wittelsbachs the 'white and blue of Bavaria's sky' have been identifying colors for over 700 years. It is a proud tradition to display the colors of the Free State of Bavaria on every festive occasion.

Hiking the Alps

by claudia1975

There are too many beautiful mountains close to Munich. It is difficult to highlight a special one. Mountains, which are close to Munich are usually crowded on sunny week-ends. Most hiking trails leading all the way to a summit are only snow free between May and late September.

An easy and typical family mountain is the “Jochberg”, 1565m high. The way up takes between 50 minutes and 2,5 hours – depending on your shape. There is a nice Alm (mountain hut with drinks and food) about 15 minutes below the summit. You get fresh kefir, Bavarian cheese noodles or Apfelstrudel (apple pie). The “entrance” to the trail and parking possibilities are hard to explain. Best is you look into a book at the bookstore Hugendubel (see shopping tips) or find directions and more details in the Internet.

Other mountains, which are within 1,5 hours drive of Munich and very very beautiful:

Kienjoch, 1953m (my favourite)
Ettaler Mandl, 1633m
Rosstein 1698m
Buchstein
Soiernspitze
Westliche Karwendelspitze, 2384m
Notkarspitze, 1889m

The is a good book (but it is in German): „Bayrische Hausberge“ by H. Bauregger. It includes height profiles, route descriptions and picture material. Also visit the web-link below. - hiking boots
- water bootle
- back pack
- first aid kit
- waterproof gear
- changing clothes
- camera
- some food
- if you leave for a loneley trip or several-day tour tell people, where you will be going
