Beer Garden near the Chinese Tower

Scott Schopieray

Munich has several interesting historical sites. There are the remnants of a time when the Wittelsbach family still ruled and beautifully restored gateways that date from the 14th century. Churches, parks, gardens … just wander around the different quarters and you’ll come across something of your interest. Those interested in art and history can make a choice from the elaborate list of art galleries and museums.

You can also opt for one of the guided tours. A must for cineasts is the Film Express that takes its vistors through Germany's Film City. For more options, check out the guided tours section.

Peterskirche (Church of St. Peter)

Edit This

Oldest parish church in Munich, called "Alter Peter" (Old Peter). ornate interior decorated with old masters from 6 centuries, ascent on foot possible. Rebecca Pearson: Great aerial view of the city. However, try not to visit when it is crowded. It's very small at the top and there is not much room for crowds to squeeze around in.

One of the largest municipal parks in the world, the English Garden is situated between the city center, Schwabing and the Isar river. Its origins date back to 1789, the year in which the Chinese Tower - today one of the main attractions and the centerpiece of a thriving beer garden - was erected . A further attraction, particularly for photographers, is the Monopteros, a pillared monument set on a hill in the park in 1838.

This is a great place to take a picnic lunch and recreate with the locals on a nice day. You'll see many locals out playing football, throwing a more..
