Two days is more than enough to explore Munich’s main attractions. But because I’d like you to enjoy your city getaway to the full, here’s a list of 10 things to do in Munich.
10 Must-Visit Attractions in Munich
Munich’s main square, located right at the heart of the city. Here you’ll find both the Old and New Town Hall, featuring its iconic glockenspiel (clock).
With landmarks such as Feldherrnhalle – a monumental loggia with statues of military leaders -, the baroque church Theatinerkirche and the Residenz (featured in the next section), you’ll sure have to devote some time to this square in central Munich.
The largest innercity palace in Germany, which served as the residence of Bavarian royalty. One of its highlights is the Antiquarium, a magnificent Renaissance room.
Unmistakable for its twin towers that you can see from many spots in the city. Step inside the church to see a mysterious black footprint. Legend has it that it was left there by the devil himself.
Just a stone’s throw from Marienplatz, St. Peter’s Church tower offers stunning views of the city. Now brace yourself – you’ll have to climb 306 steps (but I promise it will be well worth it).
A market is held on this square every day, with stands ranging from food to flowers, souvenirs and more. One of my favorite spots in the city!
7. Englischer Garten
It’s one of the largest urban parks in the world (even larger than Central Park in New York!). Explore at your own pace and lose your way in its numerous paths. The 2-Day Munich Itinerary includes the main sights that you shouldn’t miss during your stroll around the park.
Accessible from Odeonsplatz, Hofgarten is a pleasant garden in the Italian Renaissance style. Perfect for a stroll on a sunny day!
Constructed for the 1972 Summer Olympics, this park stands out for its Olympiaturm, a tower which can be seen from many spots in the city.
10. Nymphenburg Palace
Built in the 17th century, it served as the summer residence of Bavarian kings. It’s possible to visit both the interior and its English-style garden.
