Plan Your Trip to Munich: Best of Munich Tourism

About Munich
Of course, beer lovers know Munich as the epicentre of Oktoberfest, a celebration of beer and Bavarian culture. Hofbrauhaus, Munich's most iconic beer hall, has been serving up brews since 1589, and the city's Bavarian tavern scene is unrivalled. But if you're looking to go deeper on Munich, there's so much to see, do, and eat. Classic German fare, like pork knuckles, pretzels, and SemmelKnodel dumplings, are on constant rotation. Then there's the sights: Walk (or ice skate) through Olympiapark, or visit Munich's English Garden, one of the world's largest urban parks. Stroll the Marienplatz promenade and take in a view of the Rathaus-Glockenspiel, a giant clock that reenacts historical moments. And in December, the city comes alive with twinkling lights and holiday markets. Check out our recs below for more.

How to Enjoy Oktoberfest Year Round in Munich

Let there be no doubt—I am a man who enjoys a good beer. I’ve ordered pints in more than 100 countries, and it’s a special delight to visit Munich, a city perhaps most famous for its annual, autumnal beer bacchanal. But I can testify to this fact: Oktoberfest never truly ends in Munich. Here’s where to celebrate with a beer all year long.

  • Seehaus im Englischen Garten
    In Munich they love their beers so much you can get one right in the middle of its most famous park. The upscale Seehaus in this palatial lake-side park has a rambling beer garden and tables along the placid waters of the Kleinhesseloher See. On my last visit, I got a frosty mug, a heaping plate of currywurst and fries, and even made a couple of new friends at the convivial spot.
  • Hofbräuhaus
    Quick: close your eyes and picture an old-school German beer hall. What do you see? I’m guessing exactly this place. Founded by a Bavarian Duke in 1589, this spot was originally part of a brewery and everyone from Mozart to Lenin has sat on the long wooden benches sipping a lager under the soaring ceiling adorned with baroque frescoes.
  • Loewenbraukeller
    This rambling old-school beer hall and beer garden has some beautiful spaces to enjoy your brew. Come for the beer, which they brew themselves, including a really lovely, crisp, half-dry Pilsner that I loved. Then stay for the music—a band plays live Bavarian tunes six days a week. The food is excellent too—think, seasonal, elevated local classics. My recommendation—the weisswurst, the traditional white sausage of Munich, with a nice, spicy mustard.
  • Tap House - Camba Bavaria
    This cosy basement spot owned by a certified beer sommelier opened a decade ago with a modest goal: to be the ultimate destination for beer lovers. At any given time, you’ll find some 200 different options to sip here, both hyper-local choices and varieties from around the globe. I love to chat with the staff, all beer aficionados, and try a truly unique or even experimental beer that I wouldn’t find anywhere else in the world.
  • M'Uniqo Rooftop Bar
    Right, so stick with me on this one. Yes, it’s a hotel bar, and an Italian/Mediterranean themed one at that. But the beer is good and the view alone—with the skyline of Munich at your feet and the snow-capped Alps on the horizon—is worth a visit. And the part I love most is that this is where locals grab a drink after work; I often start my evening here just to take in the scene.
