Cheap areas to stay in Munich

Munich may have a reputation as one of Germany’s most expensive cities, but amidst its luxurious spa hotels and exclusive restaurants, you’ll find plenty of budget-friendly hotels. Alstadt-Lehel, the city’s enchanting historic heart, is where you’ll find many of the major sights, shops, and restaurants. Opt to stay here and you’ll immediately cut down on travel costs.

The Aparthotel Adagio Muenchen City offers smart, modern accommodation in a central location at fantastic price. Each room comes with its own kitchen, so you can save on costly restaurant bills by cooking for yourself. The Ibis Muenchen City boasts a friendly lounge bar and deli, and offers home comforts such as flat-screen TVs, free WiFi, and climate control. If you’re after a taste of luxury without doing too much damage to your bank balance, look no further than the Eden Hotel Wolff, which has a blissful full-service spa and state-of-the-art fitness center.

Where to find cheap food in Munich

Hip Schwabing may boast an abundance of pricey eateries, but it’s also home to some charming, family-run Italian restaurants, where you can feast on authentic thin-crust pizza or mounds of homemade pasta, without having to worry about running up an expensive bill. Enjoying a slap-up Bavarian feast in one of Alstadt-Lehel’s traditional beer halls need not be a costly affair, with plenty of reasonably priced sausage dishes available. Maxvorstadt does a great job catering to the younger, cash-strapped crowd, with an abundance of cheap noodle restaurants, great-value burger joints, and tempting bakeries.

Cheap things to do in Munich

Many of Munich’s most spectacular sights are completely free to enjoy. The English Garden, bigger than New York’s Central Park, is a must-visit at any time of year. Enjoy an ice-cold al fresco beer by a shimmering lake in summer, crunch through mounds of golden leaves in the autumn, or come in winter for a chance to see the pagoda-like Chinese Tower glistening in the snow. A wander around the Olympiapark, site of the 1972 Summer Olympic Games, is another must-do. Its shimmering silver, highly innovative structures still look impressively futuristic today, and if you’re visiting in summer, you may be lucky enough to catch a free open-air concert. Back in the city center, you can sit down and marvel at the vaulted ceilings of the Hofbräuhaus am Platzl, Germany’s most iconic beer hall, for just the cost of a drink.

Cheap ways to get around Munich

Munich’s historic center is pedestrian-friendly and easy to navigate. If you’re feeling particularly energetic, hiring a bike is another fun and cost-effective way to get around. If, however, that sounds too much like hard work, there’s an extremely efficient public transport network, which includes underground and suburban trains, trams, and buses. A single ticket is valid across any combination of modes of transport, and if you’re making multiple journeys, you can save cash by buying a great value day pass.
