Where to stay in Munich

The St. Paul district is the site of Munich's yearly Oktoberfest and offers easy access to the city center. You may be able to find accommodation deals in the Am Schlachthof district, which is populated with small businesses and artists. Glockenbachviertel is the center of the city's nightlife with bars, clubs, and restaurants lining the streets. In contrast, Am alten Südfriedhof is a quiet residential district.

  • The museum is well looked after and has an extensive collection. Everything is well laid out, and there are occasional presentations of some of the technology at work. Unfortunately, although English is in some parts of the museum, it's inconsistent. I wanted to read more about the development of the plane but found gaps in the information boards. Otherwise, it's definitely worth a visit.
  • Huge museum. I was there also second day. One day wasn't enough. Aviation section was closed for renovation. Check out the mining section even if you are not interested in the subject. Impressive setup!
  • There are a lot of really interesting displays. The kids area is good for the little ones to explore and get involved. The boat and airplane displays were excellent. I found that there were a lot of interactive displays that didn't work. We pushed a lot of buttons that did nothing.
  • Incredible huge museum. You can spend several days in here! The best museum in Germany. And the best thing is the price. As a student you just pay 4 €.
  • This is really a huge museum and one of the best ones out there for science and technology. The adult ticket is eleven euros. The exhibits are really detailed and if one wants to see everything then two days are needed at least
