The city of Munich in Germany, I would highly recommend viewing. I don't know about the rest of the country's cities, but there is a feeling that all progress is concentrated here, either because of BMW Museum, whether because of its imprisonment for cyclists. I can only compare with Berlin, where everything is not so, where it was not felt like that, and small towns along the road looked more like toy villages with castles.
The end of our program of stay in Munich was a walk through the center of the old town.

Where to stay in Munich
Munich is a rather expensive city, so you need to look for hotels and book in advance, you can hardly find anything on the spot. Best in advance «take a walk» on the map and estimate where it will be more convenient to live and what the price is. Here are two good hotels to stay, I recommend - Hotel Senator Munchen and Pension Margit. Reviews are good, the location is good, the metro is nearby.
Munich old town
Munich's old town is similar to all other old cities in Europe. At least for me, since I am not good at architectural styles. Narrow streets paved with stones, houses close to each other with tiled roofs, small benches. The old part is not very large, and in some places it is modernized with shop windows.
Also in the center, oddly enough for us, there is a cheap market for vegetables and fruits, where locals come to buy food. That is, you can immediately buy tomatoes and a diamond necklace in a nearby boutique..
In the center of the old town on MarianPlatz, located at the station of the same name Metro there are two town halls - old and new. So near the New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus) at a certain time a crowd of tourists freezes in anticipation of a musical performance. In reality, when I saw how many people are in the square, I thought, now there will be something unusual. However, everything was limited to the dancing 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 great.
Parking in Munich
I would also like to tell you about parking, as it is important for those who will see the sights of Munich. We have not seen free parking, there are signs for paid parking and parking meters on all streets. And there are two types of streets: on some you can stand no more than two hours (1 euro per hour), on others you can stand both by the hour (1 euro per hour) and day (6 euros 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..
Please note that parking meters accept either coins or plastic cards. Moreover, apparently not all cards, ours did not work.
There are free parking lots in Munich, but there are very few of them, and you need to either know the coordinates in advance, or have time left to search. Here is a small list of such parking lots. As a rule, they are all far from the sights of Munich..
