The best thing was the balance between an immense amount of history and culture.

I’m from San Diego, California and I absolutely LOVE Munich. It’s by far my fav city in Germany. The people are super nice and friendly :) Maxvorstadt is the trendy hip area to go out for dinner and drinks, which is right next to LMU. Definitely try käsespätzle, it’s basically Mac n cheese but 10x better. The Englischer Garten is also very nice especially during the summer to tan and have a BBQ with friends. Using the U-Bahn is SO easy to use to get around or you can take a bike :) and of course Oktoberfest was amazing, I’m not a beer person at all but their beer is so easy and yummy to drink. However, if you rent a car or take a bike tour, there are soo many beautiful lakes to go swimming, hikes, or to get something to eat at a typical Bavarian restaurant. Not even exaggerating but the Walchensee lake has turquoise water. There’s also a lift that takes you up a mountain for a scenic view with very easy hiking trails (ppl bring small dogs), there’s also a little restaurant at the top with live Bavarian music :) Honestly Munich is the best, you should definitely visit :)
