What should I do during a 24-hour layover in Munich in November?

I'm a twenty-something backpacker. Beer gardens/halls are a must -- which ones? And what else should I do?

    The responses so far are quite good, and I agree that the Hofbrauhaus will be loud as it is quite large ! The beer is good there, the pretzels are excellent as well.

    Marienplatz is mostly shopping, but all pedestrian traffic as cars are not allowed there. Do see the Glockenspiel march at the Rathaus once per hour, grab a table and have a beer while you wait for the hour to strike.

    The response regarding Augustiner Biergarten and Paulaner Am Nockherberg was quite good, both are excellent beers, however, I feel that Paulaner is the better. For some added perspective, try a weissbier, which is wheat based rather than hop based.

    Bavarian food is excellent, many variations of sausage and cheese, and almost all the breads are top notch. Most bier halls and outdoor bier gartens also serve food, and the food tends to be quite good.

    If you get tired of Marienplatz and/or the The English Garden , the BMW Museum is interesting, as is the site of the 1972 Olympics, which is now a large Munich city park - but all the Olympic facilities were turned into various usage(s) for that park. Still a beautiful site, and the U Bahn - Trambahn Verwaltung (the Munich Metro System) is just 2 blocks away.

    Speaking of which, the Munich public transportation system is awesome, and is comprised of an underground subway, above grounds buses and trams and they cover the entire city and it's suburbs.

    Have a good trip, and enjoy the beer there, as it is easily some of the best in the world !

    You should visit the city center, Marienplatz , it is a nice place to see and has many attractions around to visit. Then you can go to Hofbräuhaus , one of the most famous beer halls in Munich.

    If you need a place to stay i recommend you The Tent camping (the-tent.de), it's very nice place full with tourists from all over the place.

    The oldest beer hall is Hofbräuhaus, u should drink a maß(1 litre beer) there! U can't miss the Old town hall in Marienplatz(be sure not to miss the Glockenspiel at noon time), amazing historical architecture. When u r in Marienplatz, don't forget to check out the famous Viktualienmarkt! Do take a stroll along The English Garden ! Perhaps u can ski too!

    Hi,

    I guess the most famous is this one :

    Hofbräuhaus am Platzl , right in the city center and shopping district.

    Personally, I find it too loud and inconvenient.

    My personal favorite is Weisses Bräuhaus , also in the city.

    And by the way, you don't just drink there, but get the typical bavarian food as well !

      With limited time, head downtown to MarienPlatz and walk around. After loading yourself with beer, you might want to enjoy a freshly made "hangover" juice and bread in the outdoor food markets. I liked Augustiner-Keller and Paulaner beer garden. If you like walking outdoors, do visit the Englischer Garten - it's acres and acres of beautiful park and there is an outdoor beer garden called Chinesischer Turm (complete with Chinese pagoda). Yes, you will find tourists on weekends, but the good food and beer goes great with the surroundings. · (1 likelikes)

      Elena--this is such a great answer! The best way to feature it is to post it in the "Answer" field rather than the "Comments" field. In the answer field you can type an "@" symbol at the beginning of an attraction, restaurant, etc. and it will show up mapped and listed on the right-hand side of the screen (as you can see in the answers above and below). Feel free to let me know if you have any questions! · (0 likelikes)

    My theory "Go Big or Go Home". If your in Munich and looking for a beirhall look no further than Hofbräuhaus am Platzl. If you are only there for 24 hours (and you have no other stops in Germany allowing yourself time to do the following), My highest recommendation is to go see Dachau. It's just outside of Munich itself. It is the site of one of the former concentration camps that has been turned into a memorial. Do the memorial first and then work your way back into town for the beer.

      You should be able to make it to Dachau with public transport (called S-Bahn and U-Bahn), there is a cheap 24h 'all-you-can-ride' tourist ticket which should get you there as well. The S-Bahn S1 and S8 are also your best bets from and to the airport. · (0 likelikes)

    If you want an Oktoberfest feel without actually being there for the event your best bet is Hofbräuhaus. The menu and atmosphere is perfect, even down the waitress' garb. And depending on what night you go they might have German traditional folk bands playing live.
