Munich Aug 20

Guten abend,

Looks like I will be in Munich 19-21 August. Whilst a beer or two will be imbibed my friends and I are almost grown up nowadays and looking for something interesting to do during the Saturday. We can walk and discover the city but does anyone know the city and events that may be of interest, a bit different?


Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

The main centre of Munich around Marienplatz is not really that big, and if i am frank not really that interesting. Sure there are a couple of big churches and a clock that does something interesting if you are there at the right time, but it is not some twee medieval old town (I mean there are elements of that, it is not a prime example).

I gather the BMW factory tour and the Allianz Arena tour are actually both pretty good.

also the Starnbergersee is not far away - you can get there by train, i think - for a hike in the country.
I kept thinking "swim as far as you can, swim as far as you can".
