5 things to do in Munich right now

We love to finally stroll around Munich again and discover all of the city's hidden cultural gems. Due to the current situation, some of our usual picks are still closed to the public though - so that's why we compiled our five updated favourite things to do in Munich for you to enjoy.

1. ENJOY A PIECE OF BAVARIAN CULTURE

Don't worry, just because Octoberfest isn't taking place this year doesn't mean you have to miss out on some traditional Bavarian beer. Visit one of munichs dreamy beergardens and combine a good "Mass" or two with delicious food and a beautiful scenery - for example at the Chinesischer Turm or the beergarden at the Wiener Platz.

2. DON'T MISS OUT ON CULTURE

On the hunt for some cultural entertainment? Check out Munichs Drive in Cinema called "Autokino Plus". Not only are they offering a broad selection of great movies, but also readings, concerts and plays are planned for the next few months. Just make sure to check their website and book your tickets in advance as they can't be bought onsite. 

3. GET SOME VITAMIN D

If you're in the mood to go and relax in the sun for a bit - especially after a long day of exploring and wandering around the city - but still want to experience a big part of munichs culture, you should pay the English Garden a visit. Being even bigger than New Yorks Central Park, there's a lot for you to explore: From the famous surfers at Eisbachwelle to the well-known beergarden at the Chinese Tower. And if you want to escape the city's buzz for a while, beautiful lakes like the Starnberger See or Herrsching am Ammersee are really easy to reach and just one S-Bahn ride away!

4. VISIT AN OPEN AIR GALLERY

A true insider tipp when it comes to munichs art scene is the olympic village. Located right beside the olympic park, the village was originally built for athletes participating in the games back in 1972. Nowadays it's mainly a giant student dorm. But because the old concrete buildings aren't the prettiest to look at, the students are allowed to paint their homes however they like - which results in beautiful artworks stretching over the housefronts. So if you have some spare time, wander around in the village and check out munichs biggest art gallery - but make sure to not disturb the inhabitants!

5. ENDING THE DAY RIGHT...

At the Summer Pop up Bar run by Goldamsel at the stunning Gärtnerplatz. You can simply walk by, get yourself a delicious drink or some yummy barfood and enjoy the view of the historic Gärtnerplatz theatre, which belongs to the cities most beautiful theatres.
