We will be visiting Minich as a group of 5 adults between Christmas and New Year's. Is there much to the beer gardens in winter? I am assuming not, but could be very wrong. We have an apartment rented on the east side of the Isar, around 30 minutes walk to the old town center and very near a U-Bahn stop, and are quite comfortable walking or taking public transport. What are your favorite Munich sights and activites in winter? We are up for most amything... enjoying what the locals enjoy!
*Munich*, I meant! :) Thanks! Erin
Definitely do not miss the Residenz - home to many of the Bavarian kings and a fantastic place to visit. The Science Museum is also fascinating. The former is in easy walking distance from the old town center, and the museum is an easy tram ride from there.
Oh are you going to have fun. Munich has several HUGE beer providers complete with music and all inside where it is nice and warm in the winter.
Be prepared to sit at a table with other beer enthusiasts and sing along, the music is a lot of fun and you can also order food. My page on Hofrau Haus is one where you can see a little of the action. copy and paste this to see it.

By the way,,, the food is actually very good.
Hofbrau Haus is in the center of Munich.
