Go for a walk along Isar River
Isar River runs through Munich and when the weather is nice, this is where you’d want to be. Bring your bikini and go for a swim.
Eat Bavarian food
Bavarian food is heavy but delicious, and the answer to all your pork cravings. Though if you ever get tired of Spätzle and Schweinshaxe, you should check out Master’s Home for some excellent Italian food in charming surroundings. For vegetarians, Prinz Myshkin offers hearty meatless dishes.
Visit a museum
Munich has a lot of museums and if you’re into modern art and contemporary art, you’ll be spoiled with choice. My favorites are Pinakothek der Moderne and Brandhorst, which I’ve blogged about in this post:
Enjoy the view of Munich from above
You could of course visit Alter Peter, but I suggest you go for the rooftop bar at Mandarin Oriental instead, because everybody knows that the view gets even better after a cocktail or two.
Rent a bike
I didn’t do that myself, but Hanna, did and she said it was a great way to see the city.
Visit a Biergarten
Hofbräuhaus is the most famous biergarten in the city and a good place to start before you venture out to the more specialized microbreweries. It’s touristy, but it’s also a lot of fun, and a great place to spend a night out.
Weekend brunch is big in Munich, where people gather at the city’s cafes around noon. I really liked the café in the Architecture building at the Technical University of Munich, but Hungriges Herz is another popular spot.
