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
The trek, the fall colours, the palace and the castle..there is no better word than surreal!! I was smitten by the beauty of the place, the hills and the scenery that surrounded the royal beauties. The trip is planned very well, it gives time for a quick lunch, toilet breaks and to enjoy the tours without wasting any time. Our guide was very informative and helpful. She made sure we were on time so that we didn't miss any highlights of the tour. The drive was also quiet smooth and comfortable.
It was excellent. The guide was really talkative, and knew his history. It was great! We saw both castles and they also took us to a small town where the Nativity is put on every ten years. It was really wonderful. I will tell you that the bus will leave early if everyone is there from the beginning. So when they say arrive 15 min before...they really mean it. No time is wasted to get going in the morning. Our adult daughter went with us on this trip.
Great way to see both castles with great commentary. Hanaen was our guide and she was awesome and very knowledgeable. Our driver was Smiley and he got us there and back safely. Thanks for a great day.
Ralph was super knowledgable and very friendly. We would gladly go on another tour with him! Even the teenagers in our group enjoyed the tour and learned quite a bit.
Excellent experience..Beautiful Castle tour experience.. Charlie is a brilliant guide .. i recommend Radius tours
