This is a sprawling royal residence full of wonderful artwork, furniture, and architecture. Royal appartments, chapels, reception rooms etc etc. But a real treasure is the Hall of the Niebelungen where there are pictures and history of the characters featuring in Wagner’s The Ring of...More

Residenz Munich is rich in history, you can almost smell it! Like literally. It smells old but it’s grandeur makes up for it. Beautiful artifacts and takes you deep into how people were living back then. Highly recommended.

I have seen the other answers saying that it does not have air conditioning. I was in the hotel on August 25 and my room had it, it was very hot but with the air it was very good.

To your questions: 1. Yes, Rosenheimer Platz is the stop for you and it's a fairly easy walk to your hotel. Should be no problem with one roller bag. 2. Day 3: normally I'd prefer going it alone to Neuschwanstein provided you have reserved your tickets (if wanting to do the inside palace tour). Adding Linderhof (which is one of my favorites and well worth the visit) is a bit more tricky using public transportation so a tour may be better in my opinion. 3. Day 4: Salzburg is totally...More

Can anyone help me organize the sites I want to visit into a reasonable itinerary? I am not sure about how long I will need in each place and how much time it will take to get everywhere so I'm having trouble deciding what to do each day. We will arrive in Munich on a Sunday morning and leave on Thursday morning. We like to have a full plan and then will adjust when we are there if we realize we need more time someplace.

bFinn, some of these places I have not been to so I can’t help much on those. But, @ “Marienplatz and walking around the center, seeing churches, etc.” - I would plan 2 – 4 hours for this. It’s really a pretty small area that is easily walkable. Just really depends on how many pictures you take and things like this. You will want to see the Glockenspiel go off, but that only takes 10 minutes. @ “Dachau Concentration Camp - will probably just walk around on our own instead of a tour” -...More

Hi, I am in my very early stage of planning a dream vacation in July 2019 with my family (2 adults,1 son age 12). We plan to fly into Munich and stay overnight for 4 nights. Plan to visit Neuschwanstein castle, Munich Residence, Asam Church, Viktualienmarkt, English Garden, Deutsch Museum, BMW Welt and Museum. Not sure if we will have the time and energy for Herrenchiemsee Palace. Then go to the Salzkammergut region and stay overnight for 5 nights, then Vienna for 3 nights, then home. ...More

HI, Hope I can help with your planning - July is a great time to visit Munich if you love the outdoors. Hanging out in the English Garden or swimming in a lake is a great way to pass the time! I would say, Neuschwanstein is quite a distance from Munich - you can do it by train, but it makes a really long day - even by car it's a couple of hours drive. If you want to go, I'd say avoid the weekend, and buy a timed entry ticket online beforehand, as it gets crazy busy. If you want to do a...More
