“I want to be honest: this is probably one of the most touristic beer gardens in Munich. That doesn’t mean it’s bad. Indeed it is one of the oldest and therefore mentioned in all city guides such as Lonely Planet. Worth going because of the architecture and it’s popularity. For a more authentic experience chose one of the others though!”

Church
“St. Peter's, the St. Peter's Church behind Marienplatz, is the oldest parish church in Munich. Its tower, which the Munich residents call Old Peter, is one of the best vantage points in the city and also houses Munich's oldest bells and clocks. Not only the tower, but also the impressive baroque high altar and the relics in the glass coffin, the skeleton of the holy Munditia, are worth a visit.”

German Restaurant
“Wirtshaus in der Au – Dumpling paradise A lot of people who visit Munich would like to try typical food – so this is my suggestion for a Bavarian style restaurant. The menu contains all the usual “Schmankerl” (goodies) from this part of Germany. But there are a few things which distinguish the Wirtshaus in der Au from most typical restaurants: There is also a seasonal menu on offer with, for instance, white asparagus dishes in spring time or goose roast around Saint Martin’s day which is on the 11 November. Saint Martin was once whistle-blown by some pertly geese and apparently this makes them a very popular meal that day. After you have eaten at the Wirtshaus ask for a schnapps. The waiter will present a rack with different bottles and you pick from apricot, damson or rowan berry schnapps to name but a few. As opposed to a lot of traditional places the Wirtshaus also attracts a younger crowd. Every month various events such as Jazz concerts or Waltz dancing evenings take place and they do a summer party in August where people can wear their traditional costumes. And here is my favourite thing: you can book yourself into a dumpling cookery course. So if you want to impress your friends a bit more do not only bring back a stein from the Oktoberfest but also serve a roast accompanied by homemade Bavarian dumplings.”

Café
“One of the most popular cafés in Munich! Situated on the beautiful square “Gärtnerplatz” they offer an amazing breakfast. Always crowded, you might need to wait a little. Worth going all day long though - also offer great food and drinks to chill.”

Cafe
“As a local I would generally avoid the area around Marienplatz (with a few exceptions), as it is way too touristic and full of bad and overpriced restaurants. However, this well-known place is quite a gem and offers an amazing view over the city center, as well as the New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus in German). The highlight (as you have probably guessed from the name of the café) is that you can watch the Rathaus-Glockenspiel from a very nice point of view. Also the restaurant is very romantic and has a nice ambiance, so it’s a great place for a date night. My girlfriend and I discovered it exactly this way by chance, by asking our friends for a romantic place in Munich to have dinner. As the restaurant is open the whole day, you can also visit and have breakfast, brunch, lunch and just coffee and cakes. The menu is changing, but expect an international/European food selection. Keep in mind that the price level has a premium due to location, and always reserve a table in advance.”
