Munich is vast, not only in square kilometers but also in leisure activities. I´d like to give you a few tips and recommend things which are not to be missed.
Naturally, a visit to the Münchener Townhall at the Marienplatz is a must. You can watch the daily Glockenspiel at 11 a.m., 12 a.m. and 5 p.m. and see the Mariensäule (built in 1638). Also at the Marienplatz you will find the Viktualienmarkt, the best-known food market in Germany (after the Hamburger Fischmarkt). On weekdays, you can see the colorful farmers, Münchners and tourist go about their business. On Fastnachtsdienstag (pan-cake day) the Viktualienmarkt turns into the domain of the market women, who turn it on its head.
I recommend the German Museum not only because it's a cultural "must", but because you can experience up-close how exciting science can be. There are experiments you can try yourself in every area of the 50 exhibits spread over 44,000 square meters.
What else is Munich especially known for? To sit, enjoying the mild breezes and southern sun in one of our many beergardens. Here you can bring your own "Brotzeit", or snacks, to eat with your beer, in contrast to "Wirtsgarten", where you can order food. I especially like the beergarden in the Englischen Garten, where students, tourists, and business people enjoy the midday sun together. The brass choir in the Chinese Tower completes the atmosphere.
Fun is guaranteed on the Isar boardwalk, a main artery of Munich life. The typical gravel beach of the Isar river invites one to sunbathe or splash in the water. The diehards can take a river ride, where beer insures the only liquid is not outside the boat.
"O'zapft is..." means the beer has been tapped! If your trip is planned for September, then you will hear this call. The "Wieseneinzug" of the barkeepers and breweries marks the official opening of the Oktoberfest. The innkeepers and their families parade to the festival fields in decorated coaches and the huge horse-and-carriages of the breweries carry the service personnel and the musicians. The festival is not for those with weak constitutions: Beer and celebration till you drop.
And when you've had enough of the party, you can be assured of a comfortable and affordable bed: My Munich hosts guarantee you a nice room in a nice atmosphere, and a lovingly prepared breakfast. We offer an adequate accommodation for everyone, from simple up to the sophisticated "Maximilianstrasse" (Schloßallee)!
Call me, we are looking forward to your visit!
