I go to Germany for work quite often and this German city really surprised me. Berlin and Hamburg are some of my favourites but I’ve never visited Munich before and last year I got the opportunity. This city with plenty of cultural highlights and beautiful architecture, is a city where you can’t get enough of. The architecture of some castles, museums, and lovely parks are breathtaking.
Next to that Munich is also a great place for shopping and eating. I had only 2 days to explore Munich, but I think I did a good job to find some very fine parts which you need to check out when you’re there;
Sleeping in Munich
This beautiful hotel, Flushing Meadows, is situated on the top two floors of an industrial building in Munich’s most vibrant neighborhood, the Glockenbac. The third floor has 11 individual loft studios – prizes from 165 euro per night – created in collaboration with selected personalities and friends from various creative realms, including music, cinema, design, sports and art. The 4th floor feature five penthouse studios – prizes from 145 euro per night – with a private terrace with a stunning view over Munich where they serve delicious seasonal cocktails. The bar is popular with many locals and apparently every night there’s a very great vibe.

Munich Food & Drink
1. Little Kind Cafe
Little kind cafe is located on a side street of Gartnerplatz which is the perfect place for a healthy vegan lunch! You will love it immediately; it has a great ambiance due to the cute little wooden tables – made of pallets – inside and outside with paper lamps handing and different plants. They have a nice menu, all fresh and homemade. From matcha latte coffees to vegan banana cakes, it’s all so tasty. Tip: Try the toast with avocado and a fresh coconut and top it of with a fresh cake and coffee.

Do you like coffee? Then this is the place to be. I really can enjoy a good cup of coffee and this place serves on of the best you’ve ever had! It’s a great place to get work done.

Though it’s situated on one of the most commercial streets (Theatinerstraße) of Munich, it’s a very nice cafe where you can enjoy a American cup of coffee, healthy lunch and homemade cake whilst enjoying the view of the Residence!

OTHER PLACES TO VISIT
1. Residenz in Munich
Munich Residenz is definitely one of Europe’s most spectacular palaces. Make sure to visit the different rooms where you will find fine architecture and impressive Renaissance decorations and definitely take an hour to wander to see the beautiful old courtyards – the beautiful Court Garden.
2. Munich is great for shopping
Lastly, visit Munich’s most exclusive shopping area Maximilianstraße and Residenzstraße where you will find exclusive boutiques.
One of my favorite shops is IRO. Maybe a bit pricey, but a qualitative beautiful brand where you will find that special item that everyone wants but you have!
