Munich is certainly not a city that I would suggest spending a short 24-hour visit, however our busy vacation schedule didn’t allow us to stay longer so rather than not passing through Munich at all, we decided to give it a quick visit. I have prepared this simple 24-hours in Munich guide that I am sure will help you find the main spots and will give you a great feeling of this city.

After spending a few days in Kempten to attend one of my best friend’s wedding, we took a short hour and a half train ride from Kempten to Munich via the DB Bhan.
If you are on a business trip I would suggest staying at The Westin Grand Munich, otherwise you can choose a closer location to the city centre. I personally loved this hotel because it is in a quiet area in Munich, and the subway station is very close by, so it was easy to move around. Also, after an intense weekend of partying, being able to sleep in a super comfortable bed, while having impeccable and friendly service was a must. We chose the deluxe suite room and I would really recommend it. The toiletries are a beautiful bonus as they have a wellness line, with lavender aromatherapy balm for application to the temples before sleeping, infused with essential oils of lavender and chamomile to ease tension and soothe the senses.
How nice is that?
- I suggest starting your walk around Munich in Marienplatz and Alter Peter. TIP: Climb the stairs to have a beautiful and outstanding view of all of Munich.
2. Walk to Odeonsplatz via Theatinerstrasse and pass Hofgarten.
3. From Hofgarten move on to the Englischer Garten and enjoy a cold drink near the little River “Eisbach”.
4. Once you have exited Englischer Garten move to the University and you are back in Ludwigstrasse (which ends into the Odeonsplatz).
These are some special museums that are worth your time!
-Visit NS-Dokumentationszentrum to learn about history during second world war.
-Finally, a nice castle to visit is Nymphenburg
Actually, when we go back to Munich, I will stay in one of the smaller hotels, or cute boutique hotels in Tuerkenstrasse. It is like a foodie heaven and I am sure I could have been able to try some more delicious food if we had stayed there.
LUNCH OPTION –Laden Haushermacht Speisen
The menu is totally in German, which I loved (even though my 1 year of German in university, and living with a German roommate didn’t help much) I felt like a local. Particularly, that’s the type of place that you know won’t be filled with tourists, and you will be able to eat great local cuisine at not so expensive “tourist prices”.
My choice for lunch was a SPLENDID SALAD with roasted goat cheese, rosemary and honey. Definitely a place to return-visit, also their interior design is super cute and minimalistic.
After that, it was time for a treat, so we went to Ballabeni ice-cream. The queue is always long, but it moves fast. The ice cream has such high quality, that the dark chocolate tastes almost like a mousse. It is absolutely delicious and worth those extra calories to burn at the gym. After all, what would life be without being able to enjoy these little pleasures?
I hope you have enjoyed this small pocket guide and enjoy your 24 hours in Munich!
