Dachau, hot or not?
What is Dachau
Dachau, is a city with about 40,000 citizens in Bavaria, Germany and has a history of more than 1,200 years. In former times Dachau had always been a retreat for Bavarian kings, dukes and nobility, the castle and the surrounding gardens offering a staggering view on the Alps and Munich weather permitting. Dachau became a town famous for its impressionist painters from the second half of the 19th century on. With the advent of the Nazi regime, Dachau was chosen in 1933 as site for their very first concentration camp. This has cast a pall over the rest of this small and pleasant town on the outskirts of Munich. Dachau served as a camp for political prisoners mainly and finally ended up being a staging ground to ship prisoners to Eastern death camps in Poland and elsewhere, though 32,000 people were killed at the camp itself.

pelicanpoker from USA wrote about Munich 4 years, 10 months ago
With Museums fit to amuse the mind for days on end, and sights such as the Glockenspeil, Munich does not disappoint. The world famous Hofbrau House is always welcoming for those looking for a thirst quencher. With the famous ale for the adults, and tasty orange soda for the kids, there is almost always live music playing to accompany the drinks. For a taste of Germany's past, visit Hofbrau, for some drinks, and some of the nearby food vendors for tasty treats.
With over 800 seats Munich's Hirschgarten is the biggest beergarden in Europe. It's the perfect location for a chilled Sunday in Summer. The location is great, the whole area is covered by shady big trees. Besides tasty bavarian beer you can order some typical food, too.
But in a traditional bavarian beergarden, you are allowed to bring your own food.

A very special sight from the outside, with its yellow colour and a stunning interior in all white. Well worth a visit. Also, there's a lot of other sights around, so you'll pass by here anyway. Just don't forget to take a peek inside.
jussi from Finland wrote about Deutsches Museum 4 years, 9 months ago
The mother of all technology museums. The museum is huge and there are many rooms with different themes and displays. My favorite was the hangar-sized aeronautics hall. We were unsure whether we should go to Deutsches Museum or the BMW building. In the end we decided to go to both but I think Deutsches Museum won hands down.
Munich is a great city, green, with a live city center, a great museum and very good beer I was there for business and stayed in Sheraton Arabellapark, which is in Bogenhausen area so not in the center but very convenient location - hotel rooms, service and food top of the range I was there for business and stayed in Sheraton Arabellapark, which is in Bogenhausen area so not in the center but very convenient location - hotel rooms, service and food top of the range!
