  • Cool Beer Tour and Stamp

    by BrianoConnell Written Jun 6, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The most authentic thing I did in Munich was a beer tour. A guide takes a group of about 12 people to many very Bavarian pubs (Beer garden) and you get a drink for free. My tour was the "size matters tour" with 3-5 stops included. We got a bit drunk, you have to be careful, the German beer is a bit more dangerous than other ones. But very tasty.

    Fondest memory: The coolest thing was to get a beer stamp in my passport. I got it at the Marienplatz, there is a Kiosk and they stamp your passport. You can see it below. I love it, it's a nice souvenir.

    Favorite thing: I guess that one place that every visitor to Munich goes to is the Marienplatz. It's very busy, right in the centre of the city, chances are you'll pass through if you're in town any length of time. Must see the Rathaus. U Bahn- Marienplatz
    Throughout December home of a Christmas market.

    Ice cream on Marienplatz

    by llcole Written Oct 3, 2004
    Ice cream

    Fondest memory: My friend and I were watching a group of older gentlemen eating ice cream cones. She was fascinated (for some reason), and was positive that the man with his back to the wall would finish his last. She was right, as it turned out. Anyway, I thought I'd indulge her by recording the memory in a photo.

    Central meeting point

    by adinda Updated Nov 12, 2003

    Favorite thing: Central meeting point in Munich is the Marienplat. Great place to sit and have a drink. Or to watch tourists looking up in awe to the big clock, waiting for the movement to start. Nothing much happens actually, but still people can't help themselves and keep on shooting film and pictures of the thing.

    This is Munich!

    Favorite thing: See Marienplatz, the main square of the city with its beautiful neogothic town-hall (Neues Rathaus), his old town-hall (Altes Rathaus) and the Marienseule (the column of Mary). It is a very pleasant and cosy atmosphere, with its nice caf?s. From Marienplatz? it starts Kaufinger Stra?e, the main street for shopping: very enjoyable...I can't tell how many hours I spent doing my shopping here, entering every single clothes shop, or jewels shop, and so on....From there you can go to the Frauenkirche (church of our lady). At the end of that street, there is Karlsplatz. Always starting from Marienplatz, with the Neues Rathaus on your right, take the first street on the right: you'll reach Odeonsplatz, with the Theatiner Church and the Feldherrnhalle.

    Fondest memory: The nights at the cafè in Schwabing where we used to drink great cocktails :-)

    Marienplatz Luxury

    by adambeau Updated Nov 16, 2002

    Bavaria's 2nd luxury

    Favorite thing: Strolling 'round and 'round through the sites can tire you legs a bit, so why not have a seat in an area where everyone else is doing the same thing. You'll meet new people as you relax near Karlstor, sip a hot kaffee and munch on some Kuchen, or sample some schnellimbiss, fast food snacks such as sausage or hamburgers.
    Or maybe you'll just want to rest the legs and eyeballs, like this photo captures, before heading out to explore once again.

    MARIENPLATZ

    Marienplatz, Munich

    Favorite thing: Marienplatz is the most central spot in the city. It is here, that you can watch the Glockenspiel, have a look at the Neues and Altes Rathaus, drink a beer in a beer cellar or do a little shopping.

    Fondest memory: Street musicians and artists entertaining the crowds.

    Back on 'almost' dry land with two feet again.

    by adambeau Written Feb 25, 2003
    Not lost now

    Favorite thing: The pedestrian Marienplatz.
    Ever within sight of the onion-domed Frauenkirche, hosts treasures and entertainments in plentiful variety. Here, one of the many streets that extend out from and encircle the distant kirche offers the 'lost' traveller a compass when realizing, 'oh, those weren't policemen, and that's not even a police mini.'

    Fondest memory: German-engineered...everything.

    Favorite thing: visit Marienplatz and have a good look at the Neues Rathaus (doesn't look like a new townhall, but it is definitely newer than the old one!).

    Fondest memory: The food! Some great restaurants can be found in Munich - personal favourites here include Cafe Ignatz for vegetarian food in Schwabing, Steinheil on Steinheilstr. for the best value local meals and the Pakistani place on Barerstr. near the Pinakothek.

    Just Wander the Streets and Explore

    Favorite thing: I loved just wandering the little streets especially around Marienplatz. There are some great little shops to browse in. I loved the book stores as well. I like to collect a book on each place I go to for a reminder of my trip. One thing that amazed me was that dogs were allowed just about anywhere, the airport, shops and in eating places. I was forever getting disorientated in the underground. It was like an never-ending maize.

    Favorite thing: See Marienplatz with its thousands of tourists (joke), shops (!!!!) and the city hall. Every day at 2pm and 5pm there´s the 'Glockenspiel' at the city hall which rughly can be described as some tiny puppies dancing and making music... :-)

    Favorite thing: Munich is the capital of Bavaria, the third largest city in Germany and a noted artistic and cultural center. The life of the town is concentrated in the Marieplatz on one side of which is the New Town Hall with its famous Glockenspiel; at eleven o’clock every morning enameled copper figures emerge and go through the rituals of a miniature tournament.

    Favorite thing: Marienplatz, if you don't go there you haven't been to Munich. This place is crowded with people at all times, and during december a large Christmas market fills the square. In here you can find evrything you need for ou home and for christmas gifts for people you love.

    Favorite thing: Visit Marienplatz. This is the 'New Town Hall' which has a Glockenspiel clock. Daily at 11:00 AM (and also at 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm May through October) The Glockenspiel turns and displays colorfully dressed figures.

    Favorite thing: The fish-well (FISCHBRUNNEN) directly in front of RATHAUS at MARIENPLATZ is a meeting point for everyone who wants to meet another person in Munich! Every day & night there are young people waiting for the pendant....!
