Where to Spend 2 days in Germany?

Will be in Germany for two days, most likely Munich. Any other recommendations? We are interested in beer, so thats what is steering us to Munich. Also interested in going to a concentration camp and seeing historic buildings, etc. Any help is appreciated!!

Hi B,

Munich is a nice place to visit for 2 days.

We much liked the Hotel Uhland http://www.hotel-uhland.de/enwelcome.html

For beer halls, see http://fodors.com/forums/threadselec...2&tid=34777904

Dachau is about 10 miles from Munich.

Munich's a great place, and does have excellent beer. As ira said, for the concentration camp, Dachau is an easy trip from Munich (still on the Munich S-bahn, not even the real trains), and is historically significant as the model for almost all camps that followed. As for historic buildings, you'll have no lack for them, and Munich, due to its southern location (further from the UK) managed to escape as much devastation in WWII as other cities further north.

Are you also looking for recommendations for accommodations & food, & if so, what sort of budget?

Sorry, but that statement isn't true. The city ewa leveled to the ground 100%. Just look how nice and authentic everything was rebuilt.

Munich is great. Go to the Hofbrauhaus one night (hope I spelled that right!!).

Go for a walk through the Englischergaten if it is fine!!

I love Munich!!

It wasn't 100%, and it wasn't quite as leveled as Hamburg, Dresden, or Berlin, but yeah, it definitely was hit hard. I guess a better way of putting it is that they pretty much restored everything to how it was before the war, rather than with modern architecture as in other cities.

Don't know where you get the info from, but it actually was 100% leveled to the ground. Now and then they dig out some beautifully big strong american bombs ;-) ready to explode any minute.
