Munich Bus Trip
Duration: full day
Munich, the capital of Bavaria - a city of beerhalls, media empires and culture - and voted the place where most Germans would like to live.
The journey from the Seefeld plateau takes just over two hours and normally takes in a coach tour of some of the sights on the outskirts of the city, such as the Nymphenburg Palace and the Olympic Stadium.
The centre of Munich is undoubtedly the pedestrian area between the railway station and Marienplatz. The tours normally try to get to Marienplatz in time to see the animated Glockenspiel on the town hall at 11.00 followed by sightseeing around the central area. The Hofbräuhaus, the Frauenkirche and the fruit and vegetable market are all located nearby.
Many visitors never get outside the central area, which is unfortunate as Munich has an excellent reliable and cheap underground system. Schwabing is the university area, with its bookshops, theatres and music bars.
Munich is also a city of parks - and one of the favourites in the summer is the Englischer Garten on the banks of the River Isar (incidentally, the same river which emerges from the Karwendel mountains at Scharnitz).
Please note that we do not operate or organise any excursions described on this site - they are usually run by British tour companies - and are unable to give any booking information for them as times and dates are only arranged at the start of the summer!
