Information about Munich

What to do in Munich? Where to eat? How to avoid tourist traps? Must sees and must do's... Find all the information you need as a traveller coming to Munich right here.

In my opinion, the worst thing you can do when traveling abroad is to not prepare your journey a bit. Being spontaneus is a good thing, but being clueless about what you can expect, where the cultural differences are and how to get around was never a good idea. Here I want to give you a comprehensive guide to Munich, but not the way you know it from guide books. This guide is written by a real Munich local (and not the kind of local saying „I’ve been living here for five years so I know everything“ – My family members have been Munich citizens at least for 100 years).
