Whether you’re a music junkie, a fool for fuel or a fan of world-class soccer, gardens, history or architecture, you’ll have a fine time joining clued-in locals at these beloved gratis diversions. Here are Top 5 Things to do in Munich.
1. Olympian sounds
A trip out to the Olympiapark, site of the 1972 Summer Olympic Games, is always a lovely respite from the urban bustle, but especially so in the warmer months when you can time a spin around the grounds with a free concert.
2. BMW Welt
If you worship at the altar of the automobile, you’ll want to make a beeline for this ‘cathedral of cars’ near the Olympic Stadium.
3. FC Bayern München training facility
Tickets to see world champion soccer players in a home game with their club, FC Bayern München, Germany’s winningest Bundesliga team, are not only frightfully expensive, they’re also extremely hard to score.
4. Museum Sundays
Ok, it’s not completely free, but for cash-strapped culture lovers, the long-standing ‘one euro Sunday’ admission policy at about a dozen of Munich’s finest museums is a gift.
A pilgrimage to Hofbräuhaus, the world’s most famous beer hall, is a must for every Munich visitor.
