How to spend top weekend in Munich - ideas on extraordinary attractions and sites

Koenigstor Munich Many travelers visit Munich only during the days of internationally famous Oktoberfest festival. However, one can enjoy delicious beer all year round. It is also possible to visit interesting places and learn much new about the “beer capital” of Germany. Munich is home to a creative “endless staircase” – an ideal training machine for those who want to lose weight quickly. Of course, the staircase is a great tourist destination. The masterpiece of modern designers is located in the inner yard of the KMPG business center. The staircase has a name – Umschreibung or Rewriting. It is made as a closed loop shape that somewhat reminds of DNA. On weekdays, the landmark is open for tourists. You can walk up or down the staircase and make many memorable photos.

Do you plan to use public transport in Munich? If so, be sure to make a ride in the local underground. Some stations are more like ultra-modern art galleries and look very stylish and artistic. For example, München Marienplatz Station is made in black-and-orange shades, and Westfriedhof is blue and silver, and is decorated with creative illumination. Candidplatz shines like a rainbow because of a wonderful combination of glass panels and artistic lighting. The design of Garching Station is also very attractive. Both walls and ceiling of the station are covered with colorful panels. There are a lot more interesting metro stations in Munich, so an adventure in underground tunnels promises to be an exciting one.
In order to continue exploration of the beer related stuff, make a walk on Viktualienmarkt. This market is known as a place where it is possible to try the best sorts of the popular drink. There are several quality beer gardens in the territory of the old market. This is the right place to enjoy the inimitable atmosphere of the national heritage, look at locals and indulge oneself in the atmosphere of this wonderful city. The market has one more advantage – a great choice of homemade meat delicacies. Having chosen the right one, head directly to the beer garden and enjoy it. If you happen to visit the market in the morning, make an important national ritual – purchase Weißwurst sausages in one of the outlets. Locals prefer to eat these sausages for breakfast and consider them one of the most popular national dishes. Don’t forget to ask some mustard with the sausages. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

If you cannot imagine a vacation without shopping, don’t forget to visit Pearl . This shop is located not far from the railway station and offers a wide choice of clothes and accessories by the leading international brands. However, you won’t find any genuine branded items there as all the items for sale are replicas, but quality replicas and, what’s more important, cheap replicas. Stylish sunglasses for 7 euro or a new bag for 10 euro, quite well-made clothes and shoes – it’s possible to find nearly anything at Pearl, and everything is very cheap.

Marienplatz desde el suelo Is beer sampling one of the main reasons for your vacation in Munich? If so, one of the lively restaurants or beer gardens is not the right place, and you should visit St. Stephan Monastery instead. The beautiful 11th-century monastery is the location of one of the oldest breweries in the world - Weihenstephan . Doubt not, the beer from the brewery will be special as the brewing technology and recipes haven’t changed for centuries. If you want to attend other original excursions, head to the nearby town of Ingolstadt or visit Legoland .
