Romantic Guide: Things To Do In Munich For Couples
Munich is a great place for a romantic getaway because of its old-fashioned charm, beautiful neoclassical architecture, and pretty parks. Step off the beaten path of tourists, put down the beer, and do something a little different with our suggestions to make your time in Munich even more memorable.
Picnic in West Park
This park is in the southwest of the city, about 10 minutes by U-Bahn from Marienplatz. It is smaller than its well-known cousin, the English Garden. Tourists often miss it, but it’s a great place to walk around the lake hand in hand. In this beautiful park, you can find a Japanese garden, a Thai temple, and in the summer, an outdoor movie theater. Pop into a nearby bakery and buy some steckerlfisch from the small stall by the beer garden to make a tasty picnic on the spot.
Heighten your senses
With the opening of Zum Blinden Engel, Munich has joined the trend of eating in the dark. All dinners start at 7 p.m., and one of the “angels,” who are blind or have trouble seeing, leads guests into the pitch-black dining room. The “angels” help guests find their way around the room. The set menu, which doesn’t include drinks, costs €49.60, and you can choose from meat, fish, vegetarian, or surprise! The whole evening takes about 2.5 to 3 hours, and Zum Blinden Engel can be found at the Wirtshaus zum Isartal.
Compare your different styles at an art museum
Think you like similar things? There are so many museums in Munich, especially for modern art, that it can be hard to decide which one to go to. Go to the Museum Brandhorst to see works by Damien Hirst, Joseph Beuys, and Andy Warhol, including his portrait of “Marilyn.” This unique building has been open since 2009. Instead of putting a lot of exhibits in the modern gallery, the museum has big rooms with big white walls. On Sundays, you can get in for only €1, and on Mondays, the Brandhorst is closed.
Sunbathe without clothes on
Germans don’t mind showing everything. In fact, six “designated urban naked zones” exist in Munich! You might think that these would be hidden or fenced off, but they aren’t. If you take the wrong turn in the English garden, you’ll end up seeing a lot more of Germany. Join them if you can’t beat them. There aren’t a lot of places in the world where you can be naked. The other naked zones are along the river Isar.
Go out for drinks
Like the idea of having a world-class pianist play while you sip cocktails? Go to Pusser’s, which opened in 1974 and claims to have been the first bar in Munich to serve classic American cocktails. Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at 9 p.m., talented pianists will play the ivories downstairs. You’ll need to make a reservation. What’s the best? These guys love cocktails so much that they patented their own drink, the PUSSER’S PAINKILLERTM. You might not remember much about the night, but you’ll have a great time.
Dance all night.
Find out how in sync you are by dancing all night. Nachtkantine is a haven for people who love live music. It’s in the creative neighborhood around Ostbahnhof. They used to be the staff canteen for Pfanni, a big Munich company that makes all kinds of potato-related products. Now, they have dance-themed nights with live music, like salsa and swing. Even if you don’t want to dance yourself, it’s fun to watch other people Charleston, Lindy Hop, or tango the night away.
