Marienplatz – City Square

If you only have a day in Munich then why not make the most of it. Marienplatz is at the top of most peoples things to do in Munich in one day itinerary.

We got up at sunrise to see Marienplatz, the city’s central square, as it was less crowded and better for photos. Although we understand you may not be so dedicated to the cause.

Either way Marienplatz is the most popular area of the city and has been the city’s main square since 1158. With shops and local cafes to browse if you’re looking for souvenirs or typical Bavarian food then here is a good place to start!

The most popular sights in Marienplatz are the Old Town Hall, the New Town Hall, and the famous Glockenspiel.

Englischer Garten – Nature & Surfers

So when we put out a question on our Instagram, asking what are the must see things to do in Munich in one day there was one overwhelming response!

The Englischer Garten, or English Garden, is a large public park in the centre of Munich. It stretches from the city centre to the northeastern city limits. Although the nature wasn’t what our followers were advising us to check out.

There is a river that flows through the garden called Eisbach river and thanks to a permanent wave that has been formed you can catch SURFERS in the middle of Germany all around the year.

We couldn’t believe our eyes when we turned up to see dozens of surfers, male and female, old and young lining up to jump in from the sides and ride the waves.

Definitely a MUST on your things to do in Munich in one day itinerary.

Hofbrauhaus – Beer Hall & Dinner

After spending the afternoon at the English Garden and stopping for snacks we had to see what all the fuss was about in terms of beer halls.

The Hofbrauhaus is a 3-floor beer hall dating back to the 16th century, with a Bavarian restaurant, shows & upbeat vibe.

Although there are others around the city the Hofbrauhaus is the most popular and famous in town.

We walked into traditional Bavaria as soon as we entered the beer hall, and if you’re looking for something to do with your evening this has to be on the things to do in Munich in one day list.

We recommend ordering a giant pretzel, a beer and some traditional Bavarian food to truly soak in the atmosphere of Munich and finish your day off perfectly!
