“Guten Tag” fellow Kaptain Kenny readers,
Today we visit the city of Munich in Bavaria, Germany and take you to 3 of its most famous places.
The Nymphenburg Palace is a beautiful piece of land (once you get past its funny name). The gardening is pristine, it’s far away from the hustle and bustle of Munich AND so long as you can put up with bus loads of tourists pulling up, I think the space is large enough to accommodate everyone.
Schloß Nymphenburg 1, 80638 München
We didn’t take a tour inside the buildings while we were there and sadly there wasn’t too much information available. But for those history lovers, there’s a tiny snippet for you below.
“Nymphenburg Palace owes its foundation as a summer residence to the birth of the long-awaited heir to the throne, Max Emanuel, who was born in 1662 to the Bavarian Elector Ferdinand Maria and his wife, Henriette Adelaide of Savoy, after some ten years of marriage.”

The Alte Peter church has an inside climbing stairway and at the top, you’ll be treated to some pretty fabulous views of Munich.
Rindermarkt 1, 80331 München
*WARNING* This climb is not for the unfit or really tall. My poor friend Marcel (pictured below) stands at 2.7 metres and had quite the time trying to climb the staircase. This church only has one staircase which means traffic is going up and down. In other churches I’ve climbed, there was sometimes a two way system.
Overall it’s a good climb and the views are worth it!
the USA Munich?
Yes, you saw correctly. This is a famous spot inside the Englischer Garten where
crazy people come to surf. It looks horribly dangerous but it’s a real sight to watch.
A visit to Munich simply isn’t complete without a visit to the English Garden. In summer, you’ll see people sun-baking nude here… (lucky you my Grandma would say!) In autumn, you’ll be treated to some of Germany’s famous leaf colours.
Overall, it’s a great place to hire a bike and ride through. And after all your hard work, don’t forget to reward yourself with a GIANT beer. Munich is famous for its beer after all.
“With an area of 3.7 km2 (1.4 sq mi), the Englischer Garten is one of Europe’s largest urban public parks, larger than New York’s Central Park. The name refers to its English garden form of informal landscape, a style popular in Britain from the mid-18th century to the early 19th century and particularly associated with Capability Brown.
