Deutsches Museum, Munich

by maria25

Do you think that one and a half hours will be enough to visit the Deutsches Museum including the Verkehrszentrum.

Thanks alot

Uh, in a word, NO.

The museum is huge...it has to be with airplanes hanging from the ceiling, locomotives and rail cars inside the annex and out in the yard, and with a mock-up of a coal mine in the basement (Note: they have rearranged stuff since I was there...it looks like the transportation stuff is now at the Verkehrszentrum.

Also note that the Verkehrszentrum is not close to the original facility - it being at least 2 kilometers away as the crows flies.

In 1.5 hours, you would either visit just one or tour areas, or you would walk briskly through the museum(s), looking but not really seeing anything...

No. If you only have one and a half hours, decide before you go what you want to see and walk there, very fast.This is a huge place.

This is hard to read, but contains lots of information, try to find out what interests you most so that you can see this at least.

Agree with the others, definitely not. We spent the morning there, went and had lunch, then spent the afternoon there, and still didn't make see everything. It's a great museum. I hope you can make more time to enjoy it.

I agree with mccalpin .... NO.

Travel time by public transport from Deutsches Museum to Verkehrszentrum is alone half an hour.

Deutsches Museum is a huge museum. If you want to see everything you have to walk 26 km. With 1,5 hours you won't get far at all. With this time frame I would suggest to visit just the Verkehrszentrum.

You would rather need one and half days.

Reminds me of the European Vacation movie where Chevy Chase shouts at his family as heading in the door of a Museum "come on, there are 150,000 works of art to see and it shuts in 15 minutes".

Er, "sho' nuff, y'all"...dang, I just can't speak normal English ;-)

When I went to the Deutches Museum it was with the entention to spend a few hours there. I ended up spending the whole day. And that even though the steam locomotive collection (which is what I was most interested in) was closed because that part of the museum had been damaged by flooding. (This was before the opening of the separate Verkehrszentrum). I intend to go back, and spend at least another day there.
This is really a fascinating museum. Great if you're with kids too.

Travel Tips for Munich

go to Octoberfest. The city...

by Wilson

go to Octoberfest. The city is famous for this yearly event (held in late September and early October). There are many imitations, but none compare to the real deal! singing,dancing and drinking beer on top of a table in the Hofbrau beer tent with five thousand of my closest friends!

Hofgarten. Arch-shaped walls

by bugulma

The wonderful detail of the garden is the arch-shaped walls around with painting onto the ceilings of every arch and the walls. There are 125 archs. The walls were built and painted in the same period as the garden was laid out (1613-1617).

Classical music by the locals

by meteorologist1

If you walk the streets of Munich (probably the quiet parts - like in parks), you will hear some locals play classical music. This guy is playing music by Mozart and it was absolutely beautiful. If you are in Germany, you have to appreciate classical music. It really fits the surrounding atmosphere.

Munich Olympia Park

by Kvamkvam

The Olympia Park in Munich is a very populare area for many people. Its a great area for walking tours. And many things happends here. Conserts in the Olympia Halle, events on the Olympia Park. Etc.

Not on your tour guide

by criss1956

My son and I always enjoyed riding our bikes along the Isar. Just below the Harlaching Einkehr Beer Garden is a trail that take you down to the river. At the bottom of this trail is a Grotto in the side of the mountain - Very Nice!

We also loved to ride our bikes and walk through Perlacher Forest. We would often go to Bad Tolz and walk around the town. The Kasern in Bad Tolz, at one time was a training school for SS Officers and is very interesting. We loved to go down below Bad Tolz to the Brauneck Mountain in Lengriees and catch the ski lift up to the top, where we would go hiking.

Unfortunately, my son, who I raised, chooses not to remember these fun times that we had together. I've not heard from him in years.
