Castles in Schwangau
Neuschwanstein Castle
(56)
I was left speechless by the beauty of this place. The castle is straight out of a fairy-tale and the area is just gorgeous. I recommend visiting it, but also stopping at the Marienbrüke Bridge to get the best views of this 200 year old castle and the Alps in the background. It's history and nature coming together in the most wonderful way!
Squares in Munich
Marienplatz
(75)
This square is a beautiful place. It was my favorite part of Munich. I was living in a village to the south, and whenever I could, I went to the big city, only to go on these streets, which are full of history and culture. It is worth entering the new City Hall (Neues Rathaus), climb the church tower to get a good view of what is around the city, have a few beers and a good meal at the nearby typical Bavarian HB, visit Frauenkirchen, sit and have a beer at the market, stroll along the EnglischerGarten ... If you go in the area, it is a must.
Bars in Munich
Hofbräuhaus München
(44)
It's one of the most famous beer halls in Munich and one of the city's most important tourist attractions. And, it's the center of attention during Oktoberfest. It's a beer hall with a long history and is known for rallies that Hitler used to give when first starting in politics. It is very large and has several rooms that can hold up to 2500 people.
Of Cultural Interest in Munich
Oktoberfest
(20)
This year I finally was able to go and experience this event known as "The October Festival". I have no words to describe it. It is amazing because there are people everywhere, sharing tables and of course toasting with these jars filled with 1 liter of beer. Each house has a brand of beer, large or important and there are 6. There are also plenty of attractions.The Germans are almost always with a beer in their hand from 9 in the morning, taking the subway, walking the streets, etc. The smaller size is a pint and the largest I have seen is 1 liter. I found rather drunk people but by the surroundings of the fair. The people are very friendly and very attentive. I recommend it to everyone. I'll be back another year.

Gardens in Munich
Englischer Garten
(28)
I am going to share these strange images of famous surfers in the English Garden (English park) in Munich. Although this German town has no beach, if you like surfing you can go to this place and using the force with which the water comes out and the preparation of this part of the canal, you can surf the waves in "Eisbach" a manmade stream, from the Isar River as it passes through Munich.

City Halls in Munich
New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus)
(28)
This is the new Town Hall and can be found in Marienplatz. It is with a Gothic Revival style and was constructed between 1867 and 1909. Its main facade measures 100m in length and 85m in high, and its tower is one of the largest in Europe. Now I'll give my particular opinion. The building is as grand and beautiful as they come, with typically neoclassical decoration, decorated all to no avail. What most caught my attention are the gargoyles and flower decorations on the outside of it. We also noticed a courtyard, where there is a café where you can have a drink in the evening or enjoy a nice dessert.
Flea Markets in Munich
Viktualienmarkt
(19)
About two minutes from Marienplatz is a market where you can buy different products ranging from fruit to Christmas decorations. There are also stalls that sell sausages (delicious, huge and cheap) and beer with typical local food. It's a good way to have a quick bite to eat and continue sightseeing.
Historical Monuments in Munich
Munich Frauenkirche
(17)
This cathedral was constructed between 1726 and 1738, it was, until World War II, the largest Protestant church in Germany. Destroyed by bombing in February 1945, it was reconstructed by the Communists, because they wanted to leave it as a reminder of the war and barbarism. With German reunification took place, popular mobilization underwent to rebuild the church, which ceased in 2005.
Of Touristic Interest in Munich
BMW Headquarters
(17)
This magnificent museum of the famous automotive brand offers an extensive trip through history, showing their old products as well as the future trends their vehicles will follow. It also highlights the sporting success achieved by BMW cars, advertisements, and their signature engines. Recent renovations have increased the display area which has given the museum a new life and made it more attractive.
Of Cultural Interest in Dachau
Dachau Concentration Camp
(8)
Years ago was the first time I visited Dachau Concentration Camp. It was a gray day and I'd never seen anything like it. I was impressed. It was a little bit difficult to get to because there were no signs anywhere to help me. But nowadays that's not a problem because there are signs everywhere, as well as parking, and organized guided tours, buses and even audio guides in different languages. I won't go into too much detail, you already know the story, but here are some of the pictures I took. Even after 28 years I'm still impressed when I come here. By the way, it's free, you only pay for the audio guide if you want it.
Sports-Related in Munich
Olympiapark
(11)
A huge park that was built for the 1972 Olympics. With the Olympiaturm, the TV tower, 290 feet high, you recognise the place from afar. It has become the symbol of the park. The three fundamental facilities are the Olympic Stadium and the Olympic pavilions and swimming. The place is very original. A transparent cover system stands on facilities like a tent stretched by various posts. Authentic architectural work. In the middle of the park was built an artificial lake and a hill formed with the debris removed after the war. I recommend climbing to the top of the hill. There is a stunning view of the whole. I went in the summer and it was a bright green (take a look at the photos). Olympiapark Today holds various events in the city of Munich: summer concerts, fireworks, etc. .. If you visit the city, it is a must.
Stadiums in Munich
Allianz Arena
(17)
Bayern Munich (first team in town) weren't playing that week, but the 2nd division TSV were. But despite seeming boring before we went we had a great time at the stadium. The Allianz Arena in Munich is an ultramodern structure inaugurated in 2005 and it is really quite interesting from the outside. The strange thing is that the outside changes color according to the team playing, so that at night it is even more impressive.
Airports in Munich
Munich International Airport
(9)
Munich Airport is where you'll probably have to stop by if you travel with Lufthansa to Asia. Another possibility is Frankfurt, which is much larger and with more air traffic. Munich airport is very quiet, with typical duty free shops filled with German things, local team memorabilia, etc. Of course there are also bars where you can enjoy a typical German sausage accompanied by a beer HB München, of couse having been brewed in the city.
Stadiums in Munich
Olympic Stadium
(4)
The Munich Olympic Stadium with its distinctive textile cover was designed by Frei Otto. Until they built the Allianz Arena (2005), this was the official stadium for Bayern Munich and TSV 1860 Munich. It was built to host the 1972 Munich Olympics, and then hosted the World Cup in 1974. The surroundings are of lawns, gardens and small lakes. I found both structures impressive and also the whole area next to the stadium was a pleasure to stroll around.
Palaces in Munich
Nymphenburg Palace
(6)
In winter the lake is partly emptied and the cold freezes the remaining water so you can skate and play various ice sports late into the night (11 pm is late at night, too late for Germans, and even more so as it's winter).
Lakes in Schwangau
Alpsee Lake
(11)
In Allgäu, in the region of Bavaria, the area's largest natural lake is found. It is called Lake Alpsee. People love coming year-round to partake in various water sports, including sailing, surfing, canoeing, swimming or fishing. The best views of Lake Alpsee are obtained from the castles of Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein. It is just one square kilometer in length, five kilometers from shore and threescore and two meters it is the maximum depth reached. It is situated among wooded hills, and the landscape that surrounds it was very popular for its beauty during the 19th century. For that region, the kings who ruled this region it ordered the construction of several castles. From the lake there are several routes that can be navigated, a circular for two hours, runs along the shore and is a protected natural area. Another Fürstenstrasse corresponds to the call, or what is the same, the Prince Road passing through Hohenschwangau, Schwarzenberg and Pinswang. It is also possible to get from the lake to the river gorge and bridge Pöllat Marienbrucke with its spectacular viewpoint.
Historical Monuments in Munich
Königsplatz
(4)
The Köningsplatz is modern place that creates a very big square surrounded by 3 imposing buildings and an avenue. It was designed by Leo von Klenz ve was also responsible for 2 of the surrounding buildings known as Propylaea and Glyptoteka (which houses a museum of sculpture). The 3rd building is the work of Georg Friederich Ziebland and can be found in the national collection of ancient art. Each of the buildings has its own distinct style, which are Bonico, Doric and Corinthian.
Of Cultural Interest in Berchtesgaden
The Eagle's Nest
(6)
The Eagle's Nest was a gift to Hitler from the NAZI party for his 50th birthday. The house which is located on the peak of Kehlstein in German Alps, has magnificent views and today is used as a restaurant for people who come to visit the area.
