Planning Your Visit
How many days to spend in Munich?
If you're just going to tick the city off the list, then 3 days will satisfy any tourist's sightseeing needs. But for a more relaxed trip and to really get to know the city, a week's stay will be much more suitable.
Where to stay?
With public transport being so efficient, location depends on what you want your experience to be. If you want to be close to the main sights, then look for something in Altstadt. For a more modest budget, look in Ludwigsvorstadt near the Hauptbahnhof and the Oktoberfest grounds. Or if you're in the city for the nightlife, then Schwabing, Maxvorstadt, and the Gärtnerplatzviertel-Glockenbachviertel areas will be your best bet.

What people are saying about Munich
Dorothy did a great job of explaining the events that led to someone like Hitler coming into power. She also did a fine job of explaining how the sites we visited played a role in the rise of Nazi Germany. I especially enjoyed looking at the pictures of the sites we visited as they looked during that time period and after the war.
Arnem (tour guide) did a fantastic job adding to the tour due to COVID closures that precluded visits to secondary attractions. For a company like this to make the most out of the situation to accommodate its guests makes it a world class company for any traveler.
A must-have experience in Munich. Eric was very friendly and shared a lot of historical information. We even had dinner together as a group after the tour. :)
I had a great time on the trip, everything was planned out, our guide was great!
Very good way to see the main highlights of München
