The most popular things to do in Munich

No visit to Munich is complete without a wander around Marienplatz, the beating heart of the city since the 12th century. This stately town square is dominated by the breathtaking spectacle of the New Town Hall, a masterpiece of Gothic Revival architecture with an imposing tower and incredibly intricate façade. Nearby, you’ll find perhaps the world’s most famous drinking den, the Hofbräuhaus am Platzl. Dating back to 1589, this palatial beer hall was restored to its former glory after being extensively damaged in World War II. Sipping a huge glass of ice-cold beer while marveling at the ornate ceilings is a quintessential Munich experience. For more old-world splendor, head to Nymphenburg Palace, a jaw-dropping Baroque mansion surrounded by acres of stunningly landscaped gardens.
