Travel information

According to statistics, Munich is one of the safest European cities. Still, as always beware of pickpockets and it might not be the best idea to stroll alone through the English Garden at night, especially if you are a woman. There are dozens of organized sight-seeing tours, most of them leave just opposite of the central station’s main entrance. Munich has some world-renowned museums, including the three Pinakotheken (Old, new and modern), with paintings from different époques. Another famous one is the Deutsches Museum, featuring all kinds of technological stuff from cars to coal mining. Adjacent to the museum is the amazeum, hosting Munich’s IMAX-theater, where they show Live at the max at the moment ( www.amazeum.de).


Venue maps


Recommended hotels


Recommended bars/restaurants

In this season you should visit the Bavarian "Biergarten". Here you can get local food and drink (beer). F. e. "Augustiener Biergarten" very near to Krone (Arnulfstr.). "Löwenbräu-Keller und Biergarten" also near to the Krone (Nymphenburgerstr.). But the best are the small "Biergarten" in the villages in sorrounding from Munich.

Weather permitting, you should head for one of Munich’s beer gardens. The biggest one is Hirschgarten (close to Laim S-Bahn station), offering space for around 8,000 people. On a sunny day just go there, bring your own food (or buy it there), get yourself a Maß (1 ltr.) beer, sit down and enjoy in the shade of the chestnut trees. There are dozens of beer gardens all over Munich and other famous ones are the one next to the Chinese tower in the English Garden (next subway: Universität) or the one next to Löwenbräukeller (Subway Stiglmaierplatz) only a 10 minute walk away from Cirkus Krone. If you want more beer you can check out some of the traditional Bavarian beer halls; there are some of them close to Marienplatz, including the most famous of them all: Hofbräuhaus (Am Platzl). Dozens of bars can be found in Schwabing (subway: Münchner Freiheit or Giselastraße) or Haidhausen (Subway/S-Bahn:Ostbahnhof)

Vollmond The owner is a big rollingstones fan sometimes there are live videos and good music (no live bands) 80797 Schleißheimer Str. 82 - T. 52 97 36

Schwabinger 7 The oldest and best bar in town (40 years old) very good music - cheap beer. Feilitschstraße (station "Münchner Freiheit") 089 / 34 84 70 - Feilitzschstr. 7

In this area you find a lot of bars so if you don´t like it take the next door

Rennbahn Not the best but the owner is a stones fan and so sometimes the music is good and livevideos from the stones Rennbahn Schwabing - Feilitzschstrasse 12 - 80803 München - Tel ++49 (0)89 394874 Rennbahn Schwabing

Hard Rock Cafe Everybody knows it: Hard Rock Cafe München.

Biergärten Many "beergardens" you find in the "Englischen Garten" nice places are "Chinesischer Turm" (station "Gieselastraße") "Seehaus" (station Münchner Freiheit" and Hirschau (station "Münchner Freiheit")
