Things to Do in Munich 2017-03-13T04:18:14+00:00

I have called this city home for over 3 1/2 years now and am continually exploring it! So much so that I am the #BBCLocalite for Munich for BBC Travel! One of the things I love most about Munich is how green it is – the English Garden is bigger than Central Park in New York City, the Isar River has fantastic paths for jogging or cycling and there are cycling paths throughout the city! Even when you’re relaxing, chances are you’re doing it at one of the city’s 200+ beer gardens outside! While Munich is best known for Oktoberfest, the largest folk festival in the world, I’m here to show you there’s so much more to the city than that – like surfers! Yep surfers in the middle of the city!

Old South Cemetery Photos at Twilight

Twilight was upon us. I felt a shiver even though it wasn't cold as I entered the eerily light pathway to Old South Cemetery in Munich. This was by far the creepiest Saturday night I'd ever had and I hadn't even entered the cemetery yet!
