Ahh Munich, the capital of Bavaria, very well known as a hotspot for Oktoberfest, a city filled with museums and historical buildings, and more. There’s so much to see, do, and eat (yassss) in Munich so to make your next trip easier, here are our top places to visit on your next trip!
During your stay, get some rest at Cortiina Hotel, a bright, boutique hotel located in the heart of the city.
The popular Italian marketplace has made it’s way to Munich! Stop by for a quick bite, a shop, or both. We highly suggest trying out their buffalo mozzarella cheese and of course, their pizza.
While in Munich, get your shop on at one of three Edited stores in Europe, a sophisticated women’s wear brand. Plus, their interiors are the perfect aesthetic for your Instagram feed.
Espace Louis Vuitton Munich
The Louis Vuitton Foundation opened a gallery in Munich, alongside locations in Venice, Beijing, and Tokyo. It’s free to attend featuring different exhibitions every few months.
Daddy Long Legs Cafe
Just outside of central Munich is Daddy Long Legs, a cafe serving more than just coffee; they also offer acai bowls, protein bowls, smoothies, and more! It’s a colorful, inspiring and definitely delicious spot to check out.
Barer Str. 42
When in Germany, experience an authentic German meal in Hofbrauhaus, a 3-floor beer hall! You’ll hear a lot of music, prosts, and glasses slamming into tables, but don’t worry, it’s common in German culture.
My favorite meal is Manti, a traditional middle-eastern, hand-made ravioli dish, so when I found and tried out Lezizel Manti, I couldn’t wait to back. The interiors are cozy and the food is delicious.
Get your shop on at this mall. Even if you’re not one for shopping, the interiors alone are gorgeous! Maffeistraße 7
Man versus Machine
This monochrome cafe offers some of the best lattes in the city, served in their customized crocodile printed mugs. It’s the perfect spot for meetings or to get some work done outside of the office.
The main square in Munich is Marienplatz. Exploring this area is a great starting point to get to know the city.
Treat yourself one night to a delicious and authentic Italian dinner at Mozzamo. Everything about it screams Italy, from the food, the service, and even the interiors!
This castle in Munich is gorgeous year-round, but especially delightful in the summertime. And while you’re there, stroll through the park and make your way to the botanical gardens. There’s a room filled with butterflies and cacti alone.
Schloß Nymphenburg 1
Your nights out has to include Paisano, a bar + grill on the west side of central Munich: sophisticated, elegant and serves great cocktails.
Saint Peter’s Tower
You’re guaranteed the best view of the city from the top of Saint Peter’s Tower, located in Marienplatz; it’s totally worth the 300 steps up!
If you’re looking for some fresh foods or flowers, check out the Viktualien Market located in the main square of Munich. They are open daily, but in the summer especially, this place is a hotspot!
Though it’s not quite in Munich, you can easily make a day trip from the city to Zugspitze, the highest peak in Germany. Once at the top and after you take the train up and inside the mountain, you’ll experience being at the border of Germany and Austria.
