Place to eat
“Very touristy, but definitely still worth a visit. It has fantastic foods, has a very authentic Munich feel and is right around Marienplatz. Once you're there, check out Pizzeria Grano! It's worth it!”

Surf Spot
“EISBACHWELLE | ENGLISCHEN GARTEN | MUNICH | WWW.EISBACHWELLE.DE One of my favorite places in Munich when I want to escape the city for a few hours or less is the English Garden. You are in the middle of the city but you’re being surrounded by so much nature. And one of the places I visit the most is the Eisbachwelle. Even if it is just for a sneak peak when I’m ridding my bike to the city center. In the middle of Munich: surfing! No matter if it’s summer or winter, morning or evening, rain or sunshine, you will always find a few surfers ridding the cool waves. In the last couple of years there are also some female surfers that I absolutely admire. If you’re not really the surfer type, this place is still perfect for a cool down on a hot summer day and it’s absolutely amazing. And the unwritten rules between the swimmers and the surfers make them coexist just perfect. If you don’t happen to wear a bathing suit you can still cool down by seating on the side with your feet in the water and an ice cream in your hand, just watching the brave ones that trusted themselves into the cool but great water!”

Café

“My absolute favorite spot in the city, you can get an overall view of the city, and even see the alps from there! While sipping on your cold or warm drink, I recommend the Chai. It is a bit tricky to find the entrance, but find the university, and start asking for the rooftop cafe, its worth the adventure. ”
