Munich Attractions — My Personal Top Ten

Munich attractions are numerous as it is one of the tourism centers of Germany. If you’re short on time, here’s my list of the top ten things to see and do in this Bavarian gem of a city.

1. Oktoberfest

There’s no way around it. It may be a cliché, but attending Oktoberfest is truly an authentic, unforgettable (depending on how much beer you’ve drunk) experience.

2. Browsing the Offerings of the Viktualienmarkt

A bevy of fresh fruit and vegetables, handicrafts and other German goodies await you in this busy marketplace.

3. Climbing to the Tower of Frauenkirche

For the perfect bird’s eye view of the city, you couldn’t do better than the Frauenkirche. A glimpse of the Marienplatz, Town Halls and the Alps is your reward for making it to the top of the tower.

4. River-Surfing in the English Garden

There aren’t many city parks where you can go surfing but the Englischer Garten is one of them. Don’t forget to check out the Chinese pagoda and other beauties of this lovely garden.

5. Going Window-Shopping on Maximilianstraße

The high prices may put off the budget travelers, but this is the mecca of Munich shopping. Shopaholics and the fashion-minded will go crazy over the designer boutiques and high-end style (I surely do!).

6. Watching a Richard Wagner Performance at the Opera

We Germans love the opera and Wagner, who spent much of his time in Munich, and is one of our most important composers.

7. Skiing in the Alps

An undeniable Munich attraction, the nearby Alps make Munich the perfect skiing destination.

8. Having a Beer or two at the Hofbräuhaus

This iconic Bavarian beer hall is a must-see, must-do Munich attraction. Have a liter of the house specialty while noshing on the biggest pretzel you’ve ever seen, all to the tunes of an oompah band. :-)

9. Spending the Day at the Artsy Kunstareal

This Munich attraction is a vital trip for lovers of art and history. Surround yourself with centuries of masterpieces, from DaVinci to Van Gogh to Beckmann.

10. Taking in Munich’s Architectural Beauty at the Marienplatz

Possibly the most photographed spot in Munich, the Marienplatz is the locale of Munich’s picturesque Old and New Town Halls, the Glockenspiel and some of the prettiest buildings you’ll ever see.
