I'd like to spend Friday and Saturday night there, giving me the opportunity to see the rest of Munich. What are my options in the area to find a place to sleep? Are there non-hostel options or perhaps one that isn't well known?

I was hoping some people could give me some first hand recommendations on what would really make my experience a blast. [more inside]

Help me find a new (I think) nonfiction book about Germany in World War II. All I know about it: It MAY have been recently mentioned in the NY Times (a search there failed) and one memorable scene. In the scene, a German pilot writes about flying over Normandy on D-Day, seeing the sheer mass of the Allied force, and knowing right then that the war was lost for his country. I know it's not much to go on, but can anyone help?
