    The century-old Uhland is a cozy home base in Munich. In a residential area, the stately town mansion, built in the Art Nouveau style, stands in its own small garden, a 10-minute walk from the central station (Hauptbahnhof) and main city attractions.

    Emanating from Marienplatz are the pedestrian only main shopping streets of Kaufingerstrasse and Weinstrasse/Theatinerstrasse.

    Viktualienmarkt, Munich, Upper Bavaria

    Hundreds of open-air stalls make up the city's most prominent food market, a few minutes' walk south of the Marienplatz (there is no specific address, but the market sprawls over a wide area and can't be missed). Come here to experience a plethora of local and global delicacies.

  • 6. Strengthed by the hearty food of the Viktualienmarkt, make your way to Mike's Bike Tours.
    Mike's Bike Tours, Munich, Upper Bavaria

    Hilarious English speaking guides take you on a fun bike tour around Munich, hitting beer gardens, the Hofbrauhaus, parks and major sights along the way.

  • 7. Weisses Brauhaus

    Still smiling from the great jokes that your bike guide was telling you while showing you some of the best Munich has to offer, it's time to indulge in more of Munich's culinary offerings. Right down the street from Mike's you can sit and relax at the Weisses Brauhaus.
