Re: BMW Museum Munich
Coincidentally, I am leaving for Munich this Saturday - been going there for 30 years working for a company there. I arrive Sunday morning and will do a 3-4 hour motorcycle ride in the Alps with one of my buddies over there.
I've also done the BMW museum tour - give yourself at least 4 hours for that and if your daughter doesn't mind, take longer. I've attached a Munich Subway map - best way to get around. BMW World is north of downtown on the "Mittler Ring" at the U3 "Olympia-Zentrum" stop.
Oh, the Munich beer gardens - some of my favorite places! For me a must see is the Hirsh-garten on the main trunk lines west of downtown. They serve Augustiner beer - you can't go wrong with that! As mentioned the Chinese Turn in the English Garden is good (not to mention the nude sunbathing in the southern part of the park). If you want to get out into the country-side one of my favorites is Kloster Andechs, a 13th century monastary - you take the S8 south to Herrsching on the Ammersee (Lake) then hike 45 minutes through the woods up to the monastary. Another is Weihenstephan - the oldest brewery in the world operating since 1040. That is near the MUC airport in Freising. Or, right in the MUC airport is Airbrau Brewery - they specialize in unfiltered Helles (lager) and weissbier (wheat beer). The choices are endless!!! Have fun!
