I have only visited Munich...
I have only visited Munich briefly on a couple of times. Once as a short stop before going on to Berchtesgaden - the mountains were calling me! Another time for a couple of hours sightseeing before spending time at the Oktoberfest. These pics just give a brief hilight of what is to be seen. I'm sure there is so much more - just ask Andreas.
CINEMA for an English Language Fix
Learning German via the total immersion method is great.
If you feel the occasional need for a break, and want to enjoy an evening watching an English language film, check this place out:
The theater offers a rotating selection of mostly current films during the week with double and triple features on Saturdays.
What a more dramatic show? There is an IMAX theatre near the Deutsches Museum, Museuminsel 1. Phone: 21.12.50.
Germans LOVE their mayo. If you happen into one of the Burger King's or McDonald's for a cheap eat-be advised that there will be an abundance of Mayo on your grub. Thirsty for a soda? You must specify that you would like some ice in your beverage. Otherwise you get it straight up!
Bring your own entertainment
If you're here for any length of time, you may want to bring books, DVDs, a portable DVD player or laptop computer, etc. Unless, that is, you actually like watching CNN or BBC World the whole time on TV. Everything else is in German, and probably sucks anyway.
Some travel-information you...
Some travel-information you may probably not find in a travelguide: Visit Munich's beautiful graveyards, many people go there just to look old gravestones, learn or have picnics. If you can´t imagine, just look, for example 'Nordfriedhof'.
