Get acquainted with the elegant neoclassical architecture of King Ludwig I (grandfather of the “Fairy-tale” King Ludwig II); be delighted by the rococo artworks of the Asam Brothers who came from Upper Bavaria and worked for a long time in the city; enjoy the colorful hussle and bustle of the ”Viktualienmarkt” (Munich’s food market) and the vibrancy of Schwabing’s bohemian life-style.
A speciality during the Christmas season: learn how to bake Christmas Cookies the German way. And as for the culinary, how about a cooking class in Munich, out in the country or even in Italy?
