Munich Tip: Beer, ice cream and the raging Isar

EXPO REAL is approaching fast! We’re sure you don’t just want to stay at the exhibition site after a long day or in your free time, so how about strolling around in Munich instead? Over the next few weeks the staff from EXPO REAL will show you what the city has to offer.

Max-Emanuel Brewery

Tucked away in a courtyard adorned with old chestnut trees, you will find this beautiful, quaint Biergarten. Very much an inside tip for Munich’s locals, it’s not often frequented by tourists. You can enjoy a relaxing after-work beer in the quiet atmosphere, rounding off the day perfectly.

Der verrückte Eismacher

If you’re on the lookout for really tasty but also unusual kinds of ice cream, this is the place for you. “Crazy” is definitely on the program here: It starts with the flavors on offer such as beer-flavored or fish finger-flavored ice cream and ends with the furnishings. There are however “normal” flavors of ice cream on offer, making the choice all the more difficult. Dark Chocolate is definitely worth recommending.

A walk through the parks at the Nymphenburg Palace

Leave the hectic of the city behind you and enjoy a relaxing stroll through the beautiful parks at the Nymphenburg Palace. Round it off with a visit to the “Backspielhaus” at Südliche Auffahrtsallee 77. My tip: try the tasty “Scheiterhaufen” (apple cake with almond slivers).

Eisbachwelle

The Eisbachwelle (Eisbach Wave) is truly unique and well worth a visit. Where else can you go surfing in the middle of the city? Needless to say, this attracts a large audience who marvel at the surfers’ talents from morning to night. A visit to the wave can be combined with a stroll through the magnificent English Garden.
