The Tower of St. Peter’s Church is one of the best vantage points in Munich. Once you’ve climbed the 306 steps, you can see as far as the Alps, weather permitting.

The famous Frauenkirche Church seems close enough to touch and the Marienplatz Square spreads out far beneath you.

Several times a day, crowds gather in front of the new Town Hall. Look up and get your camera out: the Glockenspiel is the main tourist attraction on Marienplatz.

What’s next?

Just set off and go where your feet take you.

Munich has lots of inviting squares. The Schtahoff even offers a chance to cool off on hot days.

Anywhere you go in this city you’re right in the middle of the action. And there are lots of cozy corners, like here in the Glachbachthietl.

Why go into a museum on such a gorgeous day? That just as beautiful from the outside?

For the classically minded there are Pinakothek. And if you like it modern the museum Brandhorst.

All your senses will be stimulated during a stroll through the Viktualienmarkt,
Munich’s most famous farmers’ market.

The Bavarian kings once lived right around the corner; here’s the former residence. You can tour the inside of course, but we’ll do that another time.

Today we’ll stay outside in the Baroque courtyard garden.

No summer day in Munich is complete without a visit to a beer garden. For those on a budget bring your own food; it’s allowed.

You can also relax to some traditional music like here at the Chinese Tower — it doesn’t get more Bavarian than this.
