Things to do in Munich

Outdoor lovers looking for things to do in Munich should start with the Englischer Garten, Munich’s largest green space, which is even bigger than New York’s Central Park. Take a walk on one of the park’s pathways, row lazily in the lake, or rent a bike to see more of the vast space. For travelers intent on incorporating the city’s beer scene into all things to do in Munich, you can even rent a “beer bike,” to indulge while pedaling through the city. For an afternoon of people-watching, head to Prinzregentenstrasse, where surfers hit the waves at all times of the year.

For nightlife, the Kunstpark is a formal industrial area now packed with bars and clubs. Night-owls are no longer are at a loss for what to do in Munich after Oktoberfest tents close at 11pm. Bar-hop from hip hop clubs to dance music discos, and seek out whatever vibe you please.

Wondering what to do in Munich to celebrate another aspect of Germany’s culture? Visit the BMW Welt, the only BMW museum in the world. Explore the brand's history and even test-drive simulation cars.
