Fiance and I just booked a trip to Munich for 9/12-9/20 for his cousin’s wedding. Has anyone been that can recommend stuff for us to do? We’ll most likely have a rental car because we’ll have to drive from Munich to the countryside for the actual wedding. Otherwise, we’ll be in the city. I was already thinking Neuschwanstein castle and maybe a tour of Dachau?

Spend a day just walking around Munich! It is a beautiful city with spectacular street performers and great restaurants. Dachau is an experience everyone should go through in my opinion, I’ve been there 4 times and still don’t feel like I’ve seen everything. Neuswanstein is good to check off, but in my opinion was over hyped, but I still think it’s worth seeing. I haven’t spent time in Bavaria in about 15 years so I don’t remember it well, but I would encourage you to get off the beaten path and look for the less touristy destinations.

I went to Berlin & Munich for FHs 30th birthday. We went for Oktoberfest (I checked the dates and unfortunately it starts 9/21). Even though you’re leaving the day before it’s still worth checking out the site if you can.
We also went to Dauchau (not on tour – we walked around ourselves) & I agree with PP that you should go. I remember taking a cab as it’s kinda far from the city. But since you have a car it shouldn’t be a problem. We also didn’t get to see everything but what I did see has stayed with me all these years. Perhaps if you went on a tour you’d get the full experience.
Munich is a really, really nice city. It’s much more quaint / slow paced compared to Berlin – but still has great food and culture. And the beer of course 😊

Therme Erdding. The most unamerican experiences in the world.
Then the obvious things like a Brauhaus or two, Biergarten, the Rathaus, BMW Welt, etc.
your also only about an hours drive from Austria.

I live in Munich and I try to leave the city every weekend for the mountains. So I recommend a nice hike (within an hour drive – but be sure to get up early as the highway gets full on a weekend when everybody has the same idea of hiking. Or visit Tegernsee (also getting up early and in the car by 7:30am is advisable) and take a ealk around there – there are some what smaller hikes and the Brauhaus (Restaurant) righr by thw lake that has been there for decades. In Munich there are a few museums. One quit depressing but farely recent musuem is on munich during the nazi time – I enjoyed it more than Dachau but obviously with Dachau you really stand on the grounds. Then I would take a nice walk through the english garden and watch the surfers. Food wise I can recommend Pizza: Eataly (right on Viktualienmarkt), Fine Dining: Matsuhisa (Nobu), Vegan: Gratitude, authentic Italien (that has been around for about 100 years including infamous guests like Hitler): L’osteria italiana (a bit pricey), the best fried sweets (doughnut style): cafe Frischhut (also right by Viktualienmarkt) I order the “Ausgezogene”, Seafood for lunch: fisch witte (small place also on Viktualienmarkt – maybe you can reserve – people love the seafood pasta there). These places are mostly consistent in quality but sometimes they have a bad day so I can’t guarantee a great experience 🙂
If you have any questions let me know!
