Visiting Munich - Advice Requested
I'm visiting Munich, Germany, for a couple of weeks in February and this will be my first time ever in Europe, let alone Munich. While I'll be busy during the day with business matters, the evenings and weekends are my time to have fun and explore.
Generally I'm looking for rule-of-thumb travel advice for visiting Germany/Europe, as well as suggestions for what I should do and/or see in Munich while I'm there.
Here's what I know so far:
- My flights are booked and my passport is current.
- My hotel is near the Karlsplatz, so I'm planning on taking the subway (S-Bahn) from the airport to Karlsplatz and taking the 10 minute walk to my hotel.
- I'm not planning on renting a car, but I am going to be picking up a weekly pass for Munich public transportation, which will take me almost directly to where I need to go for work and back to my hotel, as well as for other non-on-foot travels around town.
- I need to pick up some power adapters and/or a compatible power strip. I've already checked my laptop power cord and various other power cords to see if they can handle 220v.
- I have credit cards with no foreign transaction fees, and I plan on withdrawing some Euros from a bank when I get there for pocket cash.
- I should probably pick up a physical map of Munich and a German phrase book.
- I'll bring plenty of warm clothes, seeing as how it is Germany in the winter. And having lived in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, I have honest-to-goodness warm clothes.
- I have a work cell, so I won't have to worry about running up the bill on my personal cell phone via calls/sms/data, but I'll look into a foreign plan just in case.
- Have a plan for Sundays (at least most restaurants are open).
Here is what I'm hoping to do:
- See as much of Munich as I can.
- Walk around as much of downtown/central Munich as I can.
- Eat so much food.
- Drink so much beer.
- Take a train to Salzburg on the weekend.
So please, fill in the gaps of what I should know, what I should do, and what I should see while I'm there!
