Many attractions are worth a visit
Staying for a few days in one of the H.ome Serviced Apartments München is ideal to get to know the city a little better. After you have seen the most important sights during a stroll through the old city, many other attractions are worth a visit in addition to the "Frauenkirche", the "Hofbräuhaus" and the "Deutsches Museum". "Marienplatz" in the heart of Munich is also the oldest square in the Bavarian capital.
Here stands the "Mariensäule" – one of the landmarks of the city – and daily at 11:00 and 12:00 the glockenspiel sounds at the new city hall. If you come to Munich during the pre-Christmas period, you can take a walk through the Christmas market that takes place here. In addition to the gardens of Nymphenburg Palace, the Hellabrunn Zoo and the English Garden are two popular destinations in the countryside.
As one of the largest and first public parks in the world, the English Garden has been inviting visitors to relax and enjoy themselves since 1789. Walks, meadows and beer gardens are just as much a part of the attractions as the tea house, the Chinese Tower and the Monopterus. On the "Eisbach", near "Prinzregentenstraße", the current creates a wave that can even be surfed – a feat that attracts onlookers all year round. Perfect to get to know the whole park is a guided bicycle tour.
For a day of bad weather, the city's museums offer a variety of activities. Art lovers in particular will get their money's worth in the "Kunstareal München". In the museum quarter in the Max-Vorstadt 16 museums and about 40 galleries await you, such as the "Neue Pinakothek" and the "Alte Pinakothek" with European paintings from the 13th to the 19th century, but also the "Pinakothek der Moderne", the "Museum Brandhorst" or the gallery in the "Lenbachhaus".
The cultural-historical collections of the Bavarian National Museum, the exhibition on the history of the city in the "Stadtmuseum München" or the ethnological "Museum Fünf Kontinente" are also exciting. Also popular are the Jewish Museum, the "Filmmuseum and the "Residenzmuseum" with the treasury. Combine a visit to a museum in Munich with a break in a cosy café or a little shopping spree.
