1-Day In Munich Eating German Bratwurst
Germans love good beers and juicy sausages, you can find many good restaurants around the Viktualienmarkt, the oldest market in Munich to get your German fix! Here are some of the places I visited during my 1-day stopover.
Munich is definitely one of those places I wish I had more time for to explore. None-the-less, I had a fantastic time sightseeing downtown Munich and Munich's farmers market, the Viktualienmarkt, the oldest market in Munich.
I stayed at City Hotel Munich which was pretty cheap for being in a perfect central location of the city. I must have paid 60 euros for one night.
The city is an inspiring mix of historic buildings and impressive architecture, since Munich reconstructed the ruins of their historic buildings but also created new landmarks of architecture.
A survey, conducted by the Society's Center for Sustainable Destinations for the National Geographic Traveler, chose over 100 historic places around the world and ranked Munich as the 30th best destination.
At the centre of the city is the Marienplatz—a large open square named after the Mariensäule, a Marian column in its centre—with the Old and the New Town Hall. Its tower contains the Rathaus-Glockenspiel.
Three gates of the demolished medieval fortification have survived to this day—the Isartor in the east, the Sendlinger Tor in the south and the Karlstor in the west of the inner city.
The Karlstor leads up to the Stachus, a grand square dominated by the Justizpalast (Palace of Justice) and a fountain.
