    The Charles Hotel

    by

    Part of the stylish Rocco Forte collection of hotels, The Charles is one of Munich's latest additions. It is housed in a 1930's Art Déco building overlooking the Old Botanical Garden (Alter Botanischer Garten), only a short walk from the old city (Altstadt). The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated and have the amenities of luxury hotels. I stayed here for one brief night on business in November 2011. My room, which overlooked the park, is photographed herein.

Nightlife for 30 Something

by kunger

When I am in Munich I would like to go out at night and enjoy the nightlife through the week, eat some German munchies, drink some German beer or a hot chocolate and chat with some nice, friendly people. Being 30 something I'm not into the university crowd or the techno dance clubs. But I do like to listen to music and dance. I'm looking for recommendations for places through the week that can offer me these things with an older crowd. Thanks in advance :D

Plenty of places for 30 something all over Check some of the VT tips, but most brew houses are great for beer and food and entertainment. Just walk around, Cheers Tommy x

Hello,
I think you would like the Brewery run by Paulener Beer. It is about 15 minutes walking from the Octoberfest area. Google Paulener...there are several establishments under that name.
This is a large beer hall with a garden also. There is kind of a dining room area away from the singing and partying.
The food is good, also, and if you order weissen bier you probably won't get a headache as it is made from wheat.
sorry I don't have the address, but it is easy to find and two blocks from the subway.

If the weather is good, try Waldwirtschaft Großhesselohe, a beer garden with a gazebo and live jazz.

From Munich town center, take the S-7 (direction Wolfratshausen) to Großhesselohe Isartalbahnhof... about a 10-minute walk from there.

Address: Georg-Kalb-Straße 3
D-82049 Großhesselohe bei München

Telephone: 089 74 99 40 30

Website: http://www.waldwirtschaft.de/index.html (German only)

Another option: Unionsbräu-Haidhausen, which has live music in its "Malzboden" hall Thursday-Saturday nights. Take the U-5 to Max Weber Platz.

Address: Einsteinstraße 42, 81675 München

Telephone: 089 477 677

Have fun! :)

Following up on PainterDave's choice. The Paulaner Brauhaus is located at Kapuzinerplatz 5. Take U3/U6 to Goetheplatz and walk from there. My wife and I both agree we have had the best food ever, here. You can do a little brewery tour here, bread is made from leftovers of beer making process and they also have a "bieramisu" dessert, which is quite good.

Wow ! Thanks everyone. Theses are great suggestions and I will look into all of them. I was on another forum last night and someone said in November you should get use to it getting dark really early and finding thinkgs to do at night. So these suggestions are a huge help. :D

Travel Tips for Munich

Laundromat in Munich

by Mikebb

Whilst travelling, especially when you only spend a few days in a town, it is handy to know where you can do your laundry cheaply.

We found a good laundromat in Paul-Heyse Str, just near Schwanthale Str. which is less than 5 minutes walk from Hauptohf.

You can find a lot of statues...

by barcodex

You can find a lot of statues all over the Munich, either in form of fountain, statue ensemble or standalone sculpture. I really liked this pig, it looks so happy that you can think it smiles (I do not know do pigs smile in real life, but they do in bronze)!

Olympia Stadium detail

by bugulma

There is very interesting construction of the satdium and the details could be seen in the picture. For me it was impressive to sit in the chair in the stadium (empty :-( ) and imagine how it was in 1972, over Olympic games, or how it was Bavaria, the football club, played here. The stadium is open every day 9am-6pm, except days of competitions, and ticket's fee is EUR 2.

Bavarian words & phrases...

by orlikins

Radler - a beer shandy, in North Germany, it's known as Alsterwasser.

Geh' ma - 'let's go', 'come on'

Auf Wiederschauen - like Auf Wiedersehen (see you later)

Wiesn - Another term for the Oktoberfest

Hendl Hoch! - Raise your chicken! (only used at the oktoberfest, when the bandmaster shouts Hendl hoch, you raise your chicken piece, like a toast!)

Ein Maß - 1 litre of beer.

Servus! and Gruss Gott - typical Bavarian greetings - you will NEVER hear this in North Germany, unless you're talking to a Bavarian. You'll hear it in Austria too.

Gucken, schauen - both mean 'to look'

Old south cemetery

by tompt

If you like some peace and quiet, just a escape from the busy city centre, visit the old south cemetery. (Alter Süd Friedhof)
Just a few minutes south of the Sendlinger Tor (the south city watchtower) you will find a cemetery filled with trees. It looks like a park with tombstones in it. The birds were singing in the trees and it was a nice relaxing stroll. Some famous people from Munich are buried here, people who were something in the field of polics, art, culture or science in the 18th and 19th century.
It is all explained on signs at the entrance.

Address:
Thalkirchner Straße 17
80331 München
