Where to stay and what to do in Munich
May 22, 2015 12:46 PM   Subscribe

I'm in Munich for three days this summer (around the last of week of June) and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for hostels? I'd prefer a social atmosphere but nothing too party-oriented. Also, what are some must-see and must-do things for a short visit to Munich?

I stayed at Wombats nearly five years ago, and had no complaints, and it's still highly rated. Right near the train station. They had a good walking tour of the city at the time.

The White Rose exhibit in Munich University is a very moving experience.

I enjoyed walking around the Englischer Garten on a fine June day.

Wombats and the walking tour seconded. Neuschwanstein Castle is a nice day trip.

I visited Munich several years ago. If were to return for a visit what I would definitely plan on doing is renting a bicycle and riding around the city a bit. They have a very extensive bikelanes and -paths system and it's definitely part of the city vibe.

If you like 20th century art, the Lehnbachhaus is really nice.

The central market is good for an outdoors bazaar-like experience amongst wandering crowds.

Don't forget to watch the glockenspiel at Munich city hall at some point, right by Marienplatz.

The Deutsches Museum is insane if you are anyway into technology It has everything from ancient music instruments to a replica coal mine. Pic what you want to see ahead of time as you would need at least three days to see it all. Pretty much a museum of new and old human technology.

I'd you go to the Englischer Garten there is a standing wave at the south end user for surfing, worth a look.

Seconding the Deutsches Museum. And for the hostel, there's only one choice, really: catch the S7 S-Bahn to Pullach, location of the castle-hostel Burg Schwaneck. Booking info here.

Don't go to the Tent if you like being able to sleep at night
