Munich + Bavaria

Hotels in Munich + Bavaria

Just a three-minute walk from the central train station, the Sofitel Munich Bayerpost hotel is housed in a 19th-century building that previously served as the city’s main post office.

A vibrant makeover in 2003 has updated the Neoclassical public spaces and 170 of the hotel's 316 rooms; the lobby's stained-glass dome was restored, as well, letting refracted light pour in.

The Burg Colmberg is a 14th-century castle straight out of a storybook, rising from a rocky crag above a tiny village. It offers an eclectic collection of rooms tucked throughout a warren of crooked hallways, hidden staircases, and cozy sitting nooks.

The intimate, newly expanded boutique hotel in in a central but tucked-away location.

Series of 4 15th- and 16th-century patrician mansions, near the central market square, that are a well-preserved slice of history in the heart of the old town.

Designed by architect and native son Christoph Sattler (who helped redevelop Berlin’s Potsdamer Platz), the Charles Hotel was inspired by the Belle Époque hotels of the Côte d’Azur.

Family-owned hotel with a vaulted restaurant that serves Bavarian fare (sausage and strudel) and, on Sundays, a popular brunch. 

Room to Book: Ask for a room overlooking Promenadeplatz.

Junior suite from $590, including breakfast.

Owner of the hotel-restuarant Lars Zwick, makes fresh bratwurst from pork butchered in town.

The 2007 renovated hotel occupies an 1870's building and has a delightful heated rooftop pool and patio. The hotel's Michelin-starred Restaurant Mark's is open for an elegant Christmas Eve meal of almond-covered venison with cherries and semolina strudel.

Landry is impressed by Le Méridien Munich for its marriage of old-world hospitality and cutting-edge interiors (top-flight woods and fabrics, floor-to-ceiling windows, and sleek contemporary furnishings).
