Hi,

best Websites I found for Munich are:

http://www.lessordinary.eu (Shopping, Sightseeing, Audioguide)
http://www.muenchen.de (official Site)
http://www.hotel.de (Hotels)

You find the most hotels around the main train stations...
A great place to find fellow travellers is obviously the hofbräuhaus or the "Weisse Bräuhaus" im Tal...

Hello Adam

Spend weekend time, in Berlin, for the night life. The public transport runs all night at weekends, and there are endless types of bars and clubs, to go to.

I live in Munich.
But, in order to give details, I would have to know what types of shos, hotels etc u are looking for.
For a good selection of bars and clubs, u could go to the Kult Fabric. It is at Olympia stadium underground stop.

What other stuff are u interested in?
Nature, history?

Hi Mel,

thanks for your tips. I would like to do a sightseeing tour and if I have time go to museums or maybe a little shopping... Any recommendations about city tours or museums?

Cheers

Berlin: If you like live music, take a look at the Kulturbrauhaus (also referred to as the Kesselhaus, or Machinehaus), there is a weekly guide, that tells you what there is to do in Berlin. (sorry, forgot the name).

I found the Pergamon museum very interesting (Greek and Babylonian History, and Islamic Art). Mind you, it is closed on mondays.

Remember to buy a welcome card in Munich, very helpful. You can save a lot of transportation cost and get discount for some entrance fee.

Hello Adam

I dont know anything at all, about tours. Probably because I live here, and have all the time in the world to discover everything, without tours.

The only museum, I have been to, is the toy museum. I took my daughter there, for one of her birthdays. It is in one of the towers of the Altes Rathaus, beside Mariene Platz.

Here is a link, for the Munchener Museum.
www.stadtmuseum-online.de
It is a local history museum, which incorporates a photo and film museum and a brewing and puppet museum.

U can also go to the museum quarter, at underground station Konigsplatz. There are lots and lots of museums there.

While in Munich I took the train and bus and visited Dachau concentration camp, I spent the whole day there. It was very interesting and the museum is excellent. Just don't go if you're in the mood for a happy day out. I thought it was definitely worth it.

Neuschwanstein castle in Fussen, a day trip, 1.5 hour by train from Munich is also a good choice. Train costs around EUR27/return for group of max 5 people (I did it last Xmas). Entrance fee is EUR 17/2 castles (incl. Hohenswangau castle)

When you are in Berlin, do a day trip to Potsdam. The Sancoussi castle is very nice.

If you are staying in a hostel, I really like the Odyssee hostel at Grünberger Straße. It is two tramstops from S-Bahn stop Warschauer Str. in the eastern part of Berlin. When you walk in after 7 p.m. withou a prior reservation, you get 50 % off for the night. Berlin couldn't be any cheaper! It is very convenient to reach Schoenefeld airport and most of the sights from Warschauer Str. The building is very nice too - very typical German modern architecture, lodgings converted from a warehouse.
