If you are planning a short trip to Munich this is a must have book. It covers excellent restaurants and wonderful places to stop and shop. The essential sights are all listed by region and are explained in enough detail for one to decide if they want to visit. If you are going for a longer period of time I would recommend a bigger guide but I would still get this one to walk around with. If you are travling around the Bavarian alps region you will need another travel guide in addition to this one as it stays focused on Munich

Guten tag!

DK Publishing is the leader in "Top 10" travel guides and their Munich edition is no exception. Accurate and easy to read maps, detailed train/metro line guides, and top 10 lists for nearly everything the city has to offer. I especially enjoy reading their recommendations for how many hours to plan for a museum/point of interest visit. This came in especially handy when visiting the Deutsches Museum. I originally planned to spend three hours there and ended up dedicating nearly an entire day based on the guide. The day was enjoyable and I was able to browse through all the exhibits - which were amazing and I recommend this museum if you are visiting Munich!

The guide is also handy to have as you take guided tours through the city. We all can't remember the names of the sights and the hundreds of facts behind them, but you can refer back later in your hotel or on your trip home.

Don't miss the section in the back on commonly used words/phrases and their translations. This came in handy a few times!

Top 10: Munich - 5 Stars

Safe travels,

Matthew Sherman

Format: Paperback
This book is probably good if you are planning on just spending a little time within the city of Munich and need to know the basics. However if you are trying to plan a trip that includes anything in the surrounding areas, or that requires a little more planning, skip this for something more substantial. The good things about this book are the "lists" for bars, restaurants, pubs, family-friendly attractions, etc. They are nice, quick guides and a way to sort through what could be a lot of info. I could see it coming in handy to have in your pocket if you're just out walking and need to find a place to eat. There are some interesting lists too, like places that serve all day breakfast, pubs with live music, etc. The recommendations are on a page in the book which has a map quandrant listed next to it, and then you have to find the quadrant on a small laminated map, a bit tedious. On the negative side this book doesn't have a map showing all recommended hotels, restaurants, etc. so it's hard to get an overview of where everything is. In addition, I found the organization of this book hard to understand - it seems like things are scattered throughout.

For planning a trip to the Munich region, I felt it was lacking in details I needed. For example, I happen to be going during Oktoberfest and wanted to know what beer tents there are, how to make a reservation at a beer tent, etc. You have to go to a website or another book for that information. Also, I wanted to take a daytrip to Schloss Neuschwanstein, which this book lists in it's attractions to see section, however there is no information indicating how to get there (is there a train, how long does the ride take, etc.). It spends too much time describing each room in the castle but no time helping you get there.

Every time I go to Europe, I spend a great deal of time researching the sights I want to see, so a book like this is redundant for me. However I gave it to my son who was traveling with friends abroad, and they loved it. They thought they hit the high points of the city and went out of their way to thank me for it.

Instead of doing the surrounding area (eg Garmisch) this guide may have been better getting a little bit more in depth about what they consider the Top Ten attractions and writing a page on each. A page desribing Schwabing or the Englischer Gardens would have been nice.

The information here is really only enough to give you an idea of what to do and then you would have to look it up on the internet. As a guide book it is lacking, but it does give some pointers.

We were going to be in Munich for 1 day...and this books was absolutely perfect! It was short enough for me to read up on the city while on the train trip to the city, and gave us an easy list to choose from (we chose the Residenz and one of the museums). I am absolutley hooked on the Eyewitness books.

I was born and raised in Germany, but moved to NY. However, I went back to Munich with my friends, and this is the perfect guide for your vacation. It has everything you need, and being German myself I can tell you that there is nothing missing in this little book!

I have bought dozens of these books. They are the best travel book. It's condensed, easy to carry and covers all the bases. I do research online, then take this one with me. It's compact in size and well written.
