Munich might be best known for Oktoberfest, but there's plenty to keep everyone amused, all year round. And the good news is, everything's within easy reach of Ruby Lilly and Ruby Rosi.
The Altstadt is a great place to start exploring. To get your bearings, wind your way to Marienplatz, Munich's central square, passing the imposing, two-towered Frauenkirche
along the way. If you time it right, you might just catch the chiming of the ornate Glockenspiel, in the tower of the Neues Rathaus.
From there, the city's top shopping spots are just steps away. Sendlinger Strasse
and the surrounding streets are home to big brands and local indies that are well worth a browse.
When you've worked up an appetite, set your sights on the Viktualienmarkt. This 200-year-old market is a great place to pick up picnic bits, and even has a beer garden so you can stop for a snifter.
If it's culture you're after, make Königsplatz and the grand museums and galleries of Kunstareal
your next stop. And, when you're ready for some fresh air, the sprawling Englischer Garten offers an escape from urban life. Hugging the banks of the Isar, it's a beautifully landscaped space for a stroll.
For a vicarious shot of adrenaline, swing by the Eisbach wave. Whatever the weather, you'll find expert surfers braving the chilly water to tackle this standing wave.
As the sun sets, Maximiliansplatz
is the place to be. For foodies, there are endless dinner options, while night owls can happily bar hop until the small hours. For a more laidback vibe, settle in to a beer hall or garden, and while away the evening over Schweinshaxe and a Stein or two.
