10 ▪ Nymphenburg Palace - Splendid summer palace.
Before visiting Nymphenburg, you first need to get yourself into a "think big" frame of mind - so just take a moment, close your eyes and imagine: King Kong, monster trucks, Oktoberfest beer mugs, America's deficit.
9 ▪ Munich Residenz - Jewel of the crown.
The Residenz is the big, fat, shiny jewel in Munich's majestic crown. It's easily up there with the best of Europe's great palaces.
8 ▪ Allianz Arena - Soccer central.
"It's a space ship from the planet Zorb!" "No, it's a giant inflatable boat!" "Rubbish, it's the world's most beautiful, modern and innovative temple of football!"
7 ▪ Neue Pinakothek - Heart for art.
This is my favorite of Munich's three big art galleries (Pinakotheks). Inside is a collection of masterful European paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries, many collected by
King Ludwig I.
6 ▪ Englischer Garten - Slendour in the grass.
I've whiled away some of my most contented hours here, lying shirt off besides a summer stream, listening to the sounds of nature and the chatter of other delinquent timewasters in the distance.
5 ▪ Frauenkirche - The Devil lurks within.
A symbol of the Devil lurks within Munich's greatest church.
The Frauenkirche's two onion-domed towers are so much a part of Munich's image that they've become the symbol of the city.
Dark clouds gather over Munich's Frauenkirche cathederal (left) and the
Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall).
