Miscellaneous: Those who know me in person know that I am a passionate fan of German publisher Publicpress, who offers the most detailed and exciting maps of German regions for any kind of free time activities. Since some time they also have city maps. I gave a map of Berlin as a gift to a good friend and loved the details which were provided on the city map, similar like the ones I am used to on their leisure maps.
I was even delighted to see that Publicpress’s city map “Munich” is available in English!! On their website it says: English version of the City Centre map Munich. Bicycle tour along selected sights, with street index, Railroad and Underground map.
Scale 1:15 000. ISBN number for ordering: 978-3-89920-706-4.
The map is now available again and costs 2,95 Euro :-)
This map, like Publicpress's other city maps, has a thin layer of plastic - thus is weatherproof and can't crinkle as much as the ones of other publishers without coating like to do so often.

Miscellaneous: Most small hotels in Munich do not provide a small kettle for boiling water, so if you are one not to spend about 7 euro for breakfast, and would like hot coffee in your room, pack a small heating stove (or element) with a metal cup, to boil your water. Of course, remember to bring your packaged instant coffee or powdered soup.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A sturdy pair of shoes for all the walking and climbing of steps that you will want to do.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Shoes: Take brown or black leather shoes. From what I saw, Europeans don't wear tennis shoes unless playing a sport, like tennis :). Better not to stand out.
The fasions I saw were really no different, so just normal sweaters and kakis were perfect for me.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Make sure if you have anything electric to pick up adapters before you leave.
Photo Equipment: Take you digital camera and an extra memory card. There are so many photo ops that you can quickly run out of room on your card. I take my laptop everywhere with me, so I tend to upload my pictrues to the computer evey couple days. This way, I can hop on the internet in a cyber cafe, and order prints that will be waiting for me when I get home.

Miscellaneous: 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.
