What to do in Munich

Admire art at the Alte Pinakothek

Home to Munich’s best collection of artwork, this beautiful 19th-century building houses works by Raphael, da Vinci, Titian, Rubens, and Rembrandt, to name a few. Admission is a lot cheaper on Sundays, making it the perfect attraction for travelers on a budget. There’s a pleasant cafe for a spot of lunch once you're finished browsing.

Take a walking tour

One of the best ways to explore an unfamiliar city is by foot. Munich runs free walking tours that last three hours and cover all the highlights, including the Royal Palace, Peterskirche, Frauenkirche and Hofbräuhaus. It’s a great way to learn more about Munich’s history.

Surf on Eisbach River

When you picture surfing capitals of the world, Munich probably doesn’t spring to mind. However, the Bavarian city is the birthplace of the unusual sport of river surfing. Head to Eisbach, a small manmade river in the English Garden, to see the wetsuit-clad adrenaline junkies do their thing.

Soak up some park life

New York has Central Park, London has Hyde Park—and Munich has the Englischer Garten (English Garden). When the sun comes out, the entire city seems to converge on this green spot to walk, jog, or soak up some rays.

Celebrate Oktoberfest

Tourists come from all over the world to take part in this celebration of Bavarian culture. Festivities, which last about two weeks, take place across a large showground called Theresienwiese. When planning your trip, note that the celebrations actually take place in September, not October, to take advantage of the warmer weather.
