Spring in Munich - the best places
The best time of the year once again begins in Munich. The spring sees people heading for the streets, the parks, the river Isar and all the other attractions of the cosmopolitan. Although every season has its own charm, in Munich it is the spring that seems to bring out the most energy and joie-de-vivre. So that you can make the most of your visit to Munich during these warm months of the year, we have summarized the best suggestions in this article for you.
Top up on sunlight and get refreshed
Anyone who thinks sunbathing, idyllic surroundings and city life are incompatible has never experienced Munich in spring. From May onwards, people gather along the river Isar until late at night to enjoy cook-outs and to relax. When the weather gets hot, many venture into the water to cool off. The most popular bathing beaches on the Isar are the Flaucher, the Thalkirchner Zoo (Tierpark Hellabrunn) and the spots around the Praterinsel. Those who do not feel like getting wet can enjoy an ice cream at one of Munich's many ice cafes. Highly recommended: the "Verrückte Eismacher", with the craziest ice cream you've ever tried out.
The English Gardens (Englischer Garten) – the biggest city park in Germany – also begin to fill with sunbathers. People take to the English Gardens to enjoy a picnic, work on their tan, go on pedal boats in the Kleinhesseloher Lake, watch the Eisbach surfers take to the waters, or simply to chill out in the beer garden by the Chinese Tower.
