And this how our Interrail adventure around Europe started.
With over 22 museums spread over the city and countless events, Munich got something to offer for every taste.
The Munich Residence, Royal Treasury, and Cuvillies Theater:
The Munich Residence was for 4 centuries residence and seat of the government until 1918. It brings good luck to touch the muzzles of the golden lion on Residenzstraße near the entrance.
The treasure chamber will help you understand centuries of Bavarian royal, military, and social history. Rooms are beautifully decorated and the green rooms remember me of Versailles. You can buy the combo ticket which includes the residence, the Royal Treasury, and the Cuvillies Theater.
At 11 am and noon (also 5 pm in the summer months) you can watch the carillon take life on the town hall tower. And remember while you are waiting for it, the square is one of Munich Wifi hot spot.
It must be one of the most famous taverns Worldwide. Founded in 1589 by Wilhelm V – even so, he didn’t like the local brew and got his delivered from the north.
There are few ways to enjoy Munich with a different perspective, St Peter might be the most beautiful one – in good weather condition you can see as far as the Alps. The town hall tower is also accessible.
We decided to go a little further and went to Cafe Vorhoelzer – a rooftop on the 5th floor – hidden in the middle of the Munich University.
The banks of the Isar river are the perfect spot to relax on a day off or have a small break from the buzzing city.
Not many people know but the twin towers dome were designed according to a mosque (caliph Abd Al-Malik mosque). The towers actually don’t have the same height, one taller than the other by 12 cm.
It is said that the devil sneaked into the church to check the finished building before its “opening”. From where he stood he could not see any window as the pillars were hiding it. He laughed and stamped on the floor.
When entering the cathedral you can still see the footprint on the entrances hall with a eperon shape on its back where the devil stand before taking one more step forward and realizing how wrong he was.
Eisbach Surf Spot:
Not far from the Haus der Kunst museum is one of Munich main attraction. With a good wetsuit surfing on the manmade water flow is possible all year long. Going in a minute from a contemporary art center to ride the greatest free continuous wave you can find in a major city.
The Asam Church is a Baroque church in Munich, built from 1733 to 1746 by the Asam as their private church. It is considered to be one of the most important buildings of the southern German Late Baroque.
It remembers me of a more budget-friendly version of the Mama Shelter with its decoration and general atmosphere.
For the rates offered you can sometimes only get a hostel room in some European cities. The friendly staff will always make sure to make you feel at home.
The outside breakfast area is lovely and we only wished to have the mini pancake every day. To be honest I cannot remember one bad review I could have on any German breakfast I ever had.
You get your money’s worth. Rooms are functional and the hotel just opened in 2013. Design is not a matter of budget anymore.
