Neuschwanstein Castle (out of Munich)


Neuschwansteinstraße 20, 87645 Schwangau, Germany

webneuschwanstein.de phone+49 836 293 0830

Built between 1869-1886 in a magnificent landscape of the Alps (near Füssen) for „Mad“ King Ludwig II to fulfill his dreams of his self-importance and greatness. While it looks like a medieval castle, it was equiped inside with state of the art technology at that time. E.g. on every floor there were toilets with automatic flushing system, as well as an air heating system for the whole castle. The castle inspired Walt Disney to create the Magic Kingdom.

Neues Rathaus - The Munich Town Hall


Marienplatz 8, 80331 München, Germany

weben.wikipedia.org phone+49 89 23300

Built between 1867-1874, a true Neo-Gothic masterpiece and a breathtaking sight located in Marianplatz. There are stunning stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings, intricately carved woodworkings, and a labyrinth-patterned floor in the inner courtyard. The glory of the Neues Rathaus is its world-famous "glockenspiel", the 4th largest in Europe. Each day at 11 am, noon, and 5 pm, the nearly life-size figures of the clock give a performance for the crowds who gather on the Marienplatz to watch.

English Garden (Englischer Garten)


Englischer Garten, München

weben.wikipedia.org

One of the largest city parks in the world (larger then New York´s Central park), the English Garden in Munich offers Beer Gardens, lakes and the opportunity for recreational activities of any kind such as football, biking, horse back riding and sun bathing. (Don't be surprised if you see nude sunbathers - Germans aren´t any puritans!). If you walk around and feel like having a drink, stop at the Chinese Tower (Chinesischer Turm), where is one of the biggest Beer Gardens in Munich. The English Garden is the awesome place for a picnic or outdoor lunch. Bands play during weekends and they seem so authentic Bavarian!

  • Hellabrunn Der Münchner Tierpark - ZOO image

Hellabrunn Der Münchner Tierpark - ZOO


Tierparkstr. 30, 81543 München, Germany

webtierpark-hellabrunn.de phone +49 89 625 08-0

Hellabrunn is not a ZOO in the classical sense. It is more of a nature preserve within the landscape conservation area of the Isar meadows inhabited by animals that live in especially large, structured enclosures. Thanks to an extensive array of ditches and a natural landscape design, the visitor can enjoy the wonderful and unobstructed view of animals that could normally only be obtained on safari. It is an incredibly pleasant park for everybody!
