Last week was the fourth time that I went to Munich. Because my German friend Carmen has already showed me a lot of the city, I love to share my favourite hotspots in Munich with you. Enjoy!
The Englischer Garten is something you for sure need to visit when you are Munich. Carmen, her mom, and I just walked around there to talk and later on relaxed on a bench. During the summer lots of students come here to study or on the other hand take a break from their study and grab a beer. From the Monopteros you have an amazing view over the park and one of the most famous things about the park is the place where the experienced surfers, surf on the Eisbach, a river which flows down the Englischer Garten.
The city centre
Furthermore is the city centre full of famous shops and easily accessible by car. If you are planning to come by aeroplane or train, the underground system of Munich is not very difficult. The ones you will use the most are probably the U-Bahn (metro) and the S-Bahn (train). However, notice that also the train tracks are sometimes under the ground and that there is no place to check in. When Carmen and I were in the metro I asked her about that and she told me that a lot of people do not buy a ticket because it is rare that a ticket-collector comes. On the other hand, when he comes and you do not have a ticket you have to pay 60 euro.
