Day trip to Munich

A tip for rainy days: visit places in Munich that you have always wanted to see. Hofbräuhaus, Allianz Arena, BMW Welt, the Pinakotheken, Hellabrunn Zoo, the famous carillon on Marienplatz are just a few examples, next to shops, cafés and beer gardens.

Of course, big city life also includes the theater, opera, concerts, clubs and bars - on the next day back in Reit im Winkl you just sleep in.
