One of the things that I came to enjoy while visiting Germany was touring their castles and palaces. There are many of them and they are very grand and detailed. While we were in Munich we decided to spend a day visiting the Nymphenburg Palace. The grounds require a lot of walking if you want to see everything, so leave yourself lots of time and wear walking shoes.
Saint Lorenzkriche (St. Lawrence’s church), a medieval church that began construction back between 1243 and 1315. An incredible church to visit.
When you see the castle for the first time in person, you will understand the description “fairy tale”. It truly looks like a castle out of some of the fairy tale children’s books. Pictures online do not do it justice.
If you appreciate nature, you will appreciate Englischer Garten in Munich. There are small rivers running through, lots of open space to fly a kite, watch some locals surf on the man-made waves, or play soccer. Perhaps you want to take a romantic walk with your significant other? It’s a truly perfect place to spend an afternoon or day.

A day trip to Berchtesgaden National Park is a must if you are visiting Munich. You would regret it if you didn’t take the time to see this magnificent park. Especially if you are an outdoor enthusiast.
