As usual, you are a master!
I'll be on my way in the morning to kufstein so I might stop at the Café Winklstüberl or Gasthof Schneiderwirt.

As for the marinplatz, I assumed that because all the shops are closed, no one will be there. My hotel is actually pretty close. As for the park, I'm not sure when will I return from my driving so I'm not sure I'll be able to get there before everyone leave.

Thanks a lot!

Germans like to walk. They don't jog/run like we Americans do! On holidays they often walk around in the cities or parks - even when the stores are closed. It's kind of weird. It won't be packed... but there WILL be people out and about.

Have fun,
Dackel

Just came back a week ago. It wasn't the best trip but I enjoyed.
On Easter I went to the English Garden. Indeed there are nudists there

It seem like everybody are enjoying themselves. A friend of mine who lived in munich for a few years in the past told me to go to the Japanese Teahouse but he meant the Chinese Tower so after walking a lot to find that Japanese Teahouse, I was exhausted so I went back to find something to eat Went to eat in the Haxenboer which is a great restaurant.

On the second day it was much better. I had a great driving day and at noon went to eat in the Brenner grill restaurant. For some reason, I remembered that you've told me that there's a very good schnitzel there but couldn't find any in the menu so I went for the Donald Russell carrée
of lamb which was amazing. One of the best I have ever eaten.

I still haven't tried the Liberkasse. I always find myself fall for a German hotdog

That was my car:


BTW, I forgot that this is a BMW forum and I'm driving one for two months now
It's my first M car and I like it a lot!

Thanks again!

Yes, the Haxenboer is a great restaurant! It's just around the corner from the Hof Brau Haus and the Hard Rock Cafe... both of which are a bit too tourist-y for my tastes. I do take out of town guests to the HB just to see the madness inside... and to their gift shop... but then I take them to a "real" German beer hall or nice restaurant around the corner.





There is a Japanese Teahouse in the English Gardens... it's down on the Southern part of the park. I've never been there... but I have walked past it before. I don't like to recommend places that I have not personally been too. Maybe something for your next visit.

The food at the Brenner Grill is always great! Especially their steaks and lamb. Yum Yum!!

No, this is not the schnitzel place... that is the Tiroler Hof down in Kufstein(Austria). They have THE best Schnitzel Vienna. Breaded in a cornflakes batter. Its very good!! The best schnitzel that I have had is from Tiroler Hof. Melts in your mouth.

Leberkase... which means Liver & Cheese.... which the sandwhich has neither!! It's kind of a hot Baloney or Spam sandwhich. You can eat it with mustard or just plain. I like it served plain. It's so yummy!! Btw... you can only find LeberKase sold in Bavaria. It's a traditional offering here.


The next time you are in Munich... go to the Marien Platz... then walk around the corner... past the Spielzeugmuseum(Toy Museum) and make a right to go into the Viktualienmarkt.

As soon as you round the corner... you will see three butcher shops with thier orange awnings shading their delicious products. I like to go to the second or third butcher(Metzger, in German). The second shop is my favorite. You HAVE to get some LeberKase on your next visit!!


Markt-Metzger AK GmbH

https://www.google.de/maps/place/Mar....5766414?hl=en




When I am in Munich's Marienplatz... I also like to grab a snack at Café Rischart. It's just a sandwhich shop... but they have some great food to go or eat in - here. I think you can also eat in, upstairs for some nice down time in the city. Another Dackel tip.

You can find these Café Rischart shops all over the city, train station and airport.

That's very nice to hear. I am happy I could help you once again on your visit to Germany. I think you need to not come on a major holiday like Easter though. Plus once we get to June, the weather gets much nicer to drive around the country side.

Best regards,
Dackel

You are quite welcome Porsha

Don't forget that MANY museums are closed on Mondays... including the BMW, Porsche and MB museums. The BMW Welt is always open to the public... but the BMW Museum across the street is closed to the public on Mondays.



Also for the summer months(2019)... BMW Classic holds an informal car show at their facility just down the street from the Welt. It's called: "Wheels & Weisswurscht"

Anyone can walk in and see some great classic cars PLUS... you get to go inside BMW Classic's vault where they keep all their great cars from yesteryear... the show is only from 10am until Noon. IF you show up with a classic car you get a voucher for some free Weisswurst!! (or you can buy some) while you are there! BMW Classic's Coffee & Cake shop is also open during this time.

The dates are:

July 6th
July 20th
Aug 3rd
Aug 17th
Sept 7th
Sept 21st
Oct 5th
Oct 19th



PS: The Porsche Museum in Stuttgart has a great display of 917 racers. Be sure to check them out!!

Excellent info. Luckily we are planning the museum tours on Tuesday and Wednesday. Sadly it looks like we'll miss the Classic you referenced.

Any advice I might I have missed on visiting the Ring?

I take it you seen this 'Ring thread of mine ?

Your first Nürburgring Nordschleife Touristenfahrten lap! (2016)
https://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1348032



The last video... post #53 was filmed this year... so it has all the latest info on TF. You might want to pay the 50 euros for an instructor like at APEX. Driving the 'Ring is very complex, much more so than driving on the Autobahn. Take it slow and don't try to break any track records. lol




And don't be this guy... lol




Really my best advice for going to the 'Ring is to be flexible. Being able to stay a day or two longer can help. That part of Germany in the Eiffel mountains, the weather is constantly changing. I have driven there many times before under clear blue skies only to get 35 minutes away and see rain and fog and snow. It's crazy the weather in that region.

Also... once you purchase your electronic 'Ring ticket(or download the app) don't go out when everyone leaves the parking area. Let everyone leave and go nuts... then in ten minutes later, go out.

IF you must stay around the 'Ring longer... maybe try driving around Cochem(pronounce: Cock-Hemm) a great small town with a cool castle. IF you park in the town's parkhaus... you can take a chair lift up the mountain to a nice overlook and grab some coffee and cake. The chair lift company used to take your pic just as you got to the top of the vineyard/mountain and you can purchase the photo. Driving South from there toward Trier along the Mosel is also a really nice drive. I prefer the Mosel to the Rhine river where everyone goes.

Cochem to Bernkastel Kues is also a good scenic drive. In Bernkastel Kues is another nice castle. Although I prefer Cochem's castle(Burg Eltz).

Here is a really old Rick Steve's video on Cochem...


Maybe IF your into military stuff... in Kloblenz is the WTS Museum of the Germany Army(Bundeswehr). Its very interesting, worth a half day. About 35 minutes North of Kloblenz is Remagen, where there famous WWII bridge crossing. There is a very small museum there, it's interesting but nothing really all too interesting in that area. I would only go there IF you are passing thru or have time to kill.

Just look at the 'Ring videos in my above link/FAQ. Shoot me a PM if you have any other Q's.
