OFF-AIRPORT : Munich and Surrounding areas:
The city of Munich offers something for everyone's taste and pocketbook. Its Museums, Galleries, Opera and Concert Halls can satisfy even the most discriminating taste. Shopping and dining options are endless. And, if you are yearning for a rest outdoors, visit the "English Garden", a rather large and beautiful city park, where Munich citizens spend their free time. It also has an indoor and outdoor restaurant. And if you have time to stay overnight, and you have a yearning to see the Alps, hop on a bus or local train to either Tegernsee or Starnberg for a day in beautiful surroundings.
Your best bet is to visit the Airport's Visitor's Center and get advice from their knowledgeable staff, which can also steer you to the best sight-seeing packages and hotels.
