Karlsplatz is the name for the district that makes up most of the city center of Munich. This is an excellent place to start Munich day trips and Munich tours. A long line of stores, an area zoned for pedestrians, makes up one of the best places to shop for all things German in Munich. The zone leads directly to the Marienplatz square, a major hangout for tourists. A Glockenspiel and the Old Town Hall await travelers here in the square, as well as some great places to enjoy a traditional German lunch of sausages and beer. Spend the afternoon and evening visiting the Alte Pinakothek and the Deutsches Musuem before checking out some more of the local brew scene at one of the local Bavarian pubs in downtown Munich.


Schwabing is the University District of Munich, and is often considered to be one of the more upscale neighborhoods in Munich. Munich day trips and Munich tours through Schwabing offer views of some excellent theaters, museums, and of course the university itself. First head to the Englisher Garten located in the district, an enormous park which dates to 1789. Spend time walking, biking, having lunch or even nude sun bathing in the park. Also in the area are the Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek, Glyptothek, and Antikensammlung; important art works that can all be viewed in this diverse district of Munich. If you have time left after viewing all of the action, spend time in one of the popular beer gardens that continue to make this section of Munich popular. Munich tours and Munich trips through the area can also end up at one of the incredibly popular discos in the university district, where a traveler can dance the night away.
