What are the Munich spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

Of course, the typical Munich highlights as the City castle, the Königsplatz - you will be surprised to find a square like this in Bavaria - you have to walk in the english garden, take a look at the surfer in the river Eisbach and just feel the Bavarian way of life. Also to go to the most well known highlight, the "oktoberfest" is always a good thing to do, go during the week and go for lunch, you will enjoy the vibes.

Do’s and don’ts in Munich: (Ex: Tipping: yes/ no, public transport tips, safety tips etc.):

Do's: tipping (10%), use public transportation (good and clean), the city is safe, walk around, go by bike in the summer, see the country side, swim in the river Isar (only if you see other people and be aware of the strong stream). Dont's: as in all cities, no rubbish in the park, behave as at home (if you do this nicely over there)

What do you do and why do you do it?

I love the city, its good, good feeling to walk around, having a drink here, some food there ... see the people

What’s the area in town you’ll never be caught dead in?


Where would you take a date for a romantic night out?

We would start with a good dinner in restaurant "The grill" at Lenbachplatz and afterward we will go to the bar: CIRCLE BY CIHAN ANADOLOGLU

Drunk and hungry - where do you go in Munich?

'Gute nacht wurst' in the middle of the city; here you will find a good snack

It's freeeeezing out - what should a visitor do?

Take a bus or a train and go to the beach...Therme Erding is the best, for young and old, in summer and in winter

Where do you take your guest when you want to impress?

Definitely to the restaurant Tantris, its a star rated restaurant with a retro look, its the 70-ties. The food is WOW, the wine amazing and the prices are high, but worth it

Your go-to brunch spots:

Die Insel - a island - in Lake Schliersee. Lake Schliersee is around 40 km from munich, its a nice small lake, nice and bavarian. A good trip for a sunday.

A good glass of champagner and good food
