Munich's Old Town - Walk

The city of Munich in Germany, I would highly recommend to view. I do not know how the rest of the country’s cities, but there is a feeling that all progress is concentrated here, or because BMW Museum, either because of its sharpened under cyclists. I can only compare with Berlinwhere everything is wrong, where there was no such thing, and small towns along the way more resembled toy villages with castles.

The end of our program of staying in Munich was a walk through the center of the old city.

Where to stay in Munich

Munich is quite an expensive city, so hotels needsearch and book in advance, you can hardly find anything here. It is best to “walk” in advance on the map and estimate where it will be more convenient to live and what is the price. Here are two good hotels where you can stay, I recommend - Hotel Senator Munchen and Pension margit. The reviews are good, the location is good, the metro is near.

Munich old town

The old city of Munich is like all the others.old cities of Europe. At least for me, since I am not strong in architecture styles. Narrow streets, paved with stones, houses very tightly to each other with tiled roofs, small shops. The old part is not very big, and in some places it is modernized with shop windows.

Also in the center, oddly enough for us,there is also a cheap market for fruits and vegetables, where the locals come to buy food. That is, you can immediately buy tomatoes and a diamond necklace in the next boutique.

In the center of the old town on the square MarianPlatz, located on the station of the same name underground there are two town halls - the old and the new. So, near the New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus) at a certain time, the crowd of tourists freezes in anticipation of a musical performance. Actually, when I saw how many people in the square, I thought, now there will be something unusual. However, everything was limited to the dances of metal figures, if you can call it that - they made a couple of circles, waved their hands. Although 100 years ago, it must have been grand.

Parking in Munich

Separately, I want to tell you about parking, asThis is important for those who will see the sights of Munich. We did not see free parking, on all streets there are paid parking signs and parking meters. And there are two types of streets: on one you can stand no more than two hours (1 euro per hour), on the other you can stand either on the clock (1 euro per hour) or day (6 euro per day). Moreover, where there is a daily payment, the night is free (from 18.00 to 9.00). Thus, leaving in the morning, and returning in the evening, you will not have to pay anything.

Consider that Parktrometers accept either coins or plastic cards. And the cards are probably not all, ours did not work.

Free parking in Munich is, but they are verya little, and you need to either know in advance the coordinates, or have time left in search. Here is a small list of such parking lots. As a rule, they are all far from the sights of Munich.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
