Best Places to Visit During a Weekend Stay in Munich, Germany

by Auto Europe International Car Rental Broker

While some cities can be sophisticated and flawless, there are those that feel like home. People there are friendly, they welcome you into everyday life as if you've known them for ages, and their smiles keep your heart warm.

Munich is one of those cities.

Munich Panorama

Along with the good atmosphere, a weekend in Munich will afford you the opportunity to visit a number of interesting places. It’s one of the most popular destinations to include in European itineraries for a reason.

You can pick up a vehicle at Munich airport to tour at your leisure during your weekend in Germany, or simply rely on public transportation to get around. It will typically work out to cost a similar amount. Auto Europe and Kemwel both offer well-priced options if you’d like to have the option to drive the Autobahn while in Germany.

So let’s get started. Here’s what we recommend if you only have a few days to enjoy Munich:

Day 1


To be greeted well on your first day in Munich, it’s best to explore the square in the city center with its crowds of people and a lot of history to learn.

The local market is a must-see and nice to shop at if you want to buy anything. Apart from it, there’s a ton of shops and cafes to have a meal at.

Another amazing attraction is Glockenspiel – a world-famous clock that plays at 11 a.m., noon and 5 p.m. and shows the tourists a whole play of the city's historical past.

Englischer Garten

The English Garden is definitely not the park you’re expecting in a major city like Munich. Have you ever seen people surf in an urban park? Well you’re about to! This magical park in Munich opens up the unreal option for its locals. This is the perfect place to rent a bike and ride around or just wander on foot and have a relaxing picnic under the sun.


How can your first day be complete without some beer? The best way to experience the local culture is to visit the most popular beer hall and taste something yummy at the end of the day.

Be aware that this venue tends to be touristy and crowded, which can be good or bad depending upon your expectations and personality.

Personally, I love bumping into other travelers from all over the world, hearing their stories, and enjoying a local brew with some new friends who, like me, are eager to enjoy an evening in Munich.

Day 2

Deutsches Museum

Deutsches Museum is one of the largest technical museums in the world that will demand more than two hours from you if you want to see everything it has to offer.

There are tours at that fixed time, so don't miss your opportunity (or explore at your own pace if that’s more your style). In case you like underground, science, machines and everything about technology – this museum is for you. A cool way to start day 2 in Munich.

Schloss Nymphenburg

The most beautiful gardens and Nymphenburg Palace are waiting for you after lunch.

Wander the impressive architecture, view amazing history pieces, and marvel at original artwork.

With a reasonable price, this place can take you to the past in no time, but you really have to dedicate several hours of your day to this process, which is why we recommend blocking off most of the afternoon for your visit.

In Case You’re Tired of the City


Do you have another day to travel or maybe you don’t want to stay in the city anymore? A breathtaking day trip by car, is a drive to Lake Königsee.

Tours are available here, and you’ll enjoy clear waters, high mountains, a spa and more. It is truly a one-of-a-kind day-trip destination.

If you need an escape from the busy streets of Munich, or just want to enjoy a little corner of Germany that operates at a slower pace, this trip is for you.
