Marienplatz

Marienplatz

Marienplatz has been the central sqaure of Munich since its founding by Henry the Lion in 1158.  It was originally named Schrannenplatz and once held the salt and grain market, but it is now used by the city for various concerts and events, but mainly by tourists trying to get photos of the old and new town halls.  After the market was moved around the corner starting in 1807, the square was renamed Marienplatz.  The statue of Mary has stood in the center of Marienplatz since 1638 and is the reason of the new name of the square.

Isartor

Isartor

The first and last of Munich's city gates for Munich's second set of city walls, the Isartor, was built in 1337.  Kaiser Ludwig IV the Bavarian had second city wall built to protect the expanding city and the wall remained until the late 1700's.  All of the other city gates were eventually torn down or dramatically modified, but the Isartor remains quite close to its original look.  It was restored between 1833 and 1835 by Friedrich von Gärtner. The murals were painted in 1835 and depict the victorious return of Ludwig IV the Bavarian to Munich after the battle of Ampfing in 1322.  The Isartor is today used as part of the Valentin Museum as well as a cafe.

The Hofbräukeller is one of the local's favorite beer gardens and beer halls.  It is actually larger than the Hofbräuhaus, but is a completely different atmosphere.  Located in Haidhausen, just across the river from the old town, it's in a nice residential area where you may never run into another native English speaker.  Don't worry though, they have English menus and a very friendly staff.

The Hofbräuhaus is arguably the most famous beer hall in the world.  At one time it was the royal wheat beer brewery, but as of 1896 it is a beer hall (Bavarian restaurant).  No matter what anyone says, if there is only one place you eat at in Munich, make it the Hofbräuhaus.  Music every day from 3pm until 11pm.  Food prices are actually slightly cheaper than any of its supposed rivals, although the beer is slightly more (about 20 cents a liter more).  Either way, you can have a good meal for around €10 and the beer costs €6.90 a liter.  Put on some lederhosen and enjoy!
