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.
Shopping in Munich
Whether a bargain or classy, whether classic or bizarre – the offer in Munich impresses with its variety. One of the sights is the "Stachus", an attractive square and below it the largest underground structure in Europe with a shopping centre. Popular shopping streets are the historic "Kaufingerstraße", the "Neuhauser Straße" or the traditional "Hohenzollernstraße" in Schwabing.
The splendid "Maximilianstraße" with its classy boutiques or the elegant "Theatinerstraße" is chic, the "Sendlinger Straße" is colourful and varied. The "Viktualienmarkt" is a classic for food and a true Munich unicum. It is only a quarter of an hour's walk from your H.ome Serviced Apartments München to the city's largest shopping centre, the Olympic shopping centre in Moosach.
During your city trip to Munich, take the time for a theatre evening. Five state, three municipal and more than 50 private stages distinguish the cultural landscape of the city. The National Theatre Munich on Max-Joseph-Platz is housed in a magnificent classical building. The Bavarian State Orchestra, the State Ballet and the Bavarian State Opera perform here. The "Bayerisches Staatsschauspiel", the "Münchner Kammerspiele" and the "Münchner Volkstheater" are first-class addresses for acting. A cabaret evening at the "Münchner Lach- und Schießgesellschaft" or in the "Wirtshaus am Hart" provides variety.
If you come to Munich in autumn, the world-famous Oktoberfest is the number 1 address for going out. Every year the largest folk festival in the world takes place on the "Theresienwiese". If you still have time, you can also head out from your H.ome Serviced Apartments München to excursions in the surrounding area. It is only 25 kilometres to the Lake Starnberg, which attracts people for bathing, water sports and hiking. Also the Alpine foothills are hardly far away, the peaks can be seen from Munich. Tie your boots and start a mountain tour from "Bad Tölz" or Lake Tegernsee.
