5 Places in Munich You Should Definitely Check Out This Summer

Are you new to Munich or have you been living here for a while, but haven’t seen much of the city itself due to the lockdowns? Then you’ve come to the right place! In the following post we have listed 5 places in Munich that you should not miss this Summer:

1. English Garden

Along with the well-known Central Park, the English Garden is one of the largest inner-city green spaces in the world. Not for nothing it is very popular among Munich residents and tourists. Lovers of the Bavarian cuisine or Kaffee & Kuchen (coffee and cake) in the afternoon will find what they are looking for at several different localities around the lake.

Whether barbecuing with friends, walking the dog or playing tennis with friends. The English Garden offers something for everyone. It also shows how diverse and colorful Munich is, especially during Summer.

2. Isar and Flaucher

Who doesn’t feel like cooling off on a warm summer day after a long day at the office? With a cold soda in your hand and your best friends around you. Armed with a picnic blanket, snacks and drinks – the Isar and Flaucher offers you relaxation and barbecue on the gravel banks. At many of the bridges located, you’ll find cute little kiosks or cafes where you can get enough to eat or drink.

3. Olympiapark

Built in 1972 for the Olympics tournament, the Olympic Park today continues to be a place of gathering and diversity. Whether it is in the summer with friends and some drink on the Olympic Hill or simply enjoying the breathtaking view that you have all over Munich.

For those that are into movies, you should definitely check out the “OpenAir Kino im Olympiapark” . A great option for open air cinema on a balmy summer evening. 

In winter, the area offers the largest ice rink in Munich. In addition, you will also find the BMW World in the immediate vicinity which offers a destination for rainy and cold days.

4. Hofgarten

Less known than the English Garden and the Olympic Park, but at least as beautiful and worth seeing. Even though it is not comparable in its size, its appearance is much more worth seeing. The Hofgarten, right next to the Odeonsplatz, is becoming increasingly popular. Not least because of its neighborhood to various cafes and restaurants, it offers a great place to meet up. I mean, who would say no to a good book and a cup coffee on a sunny bench!

5. Schwabinger Tor

Nothing is a city without its nightlife ;) If you are looking for nice restaurants and bars, Schwabing is the place for you. Here, old building charm meets modernity. Munich lifestyle meets internationality. Schwabing offers something for everyone – you will find elegant restaurants, hip cafés or cool bars. You can reach Schwabing very well if you get off the metro stop Münchner Freiheit or Hohenzollernstraße.
