Top 10: Day Trips From Munich

Updated: Jan 24, 2019

Munich not only has a lot going for it in the city itself, but it also has the added bonus of being perfectly placed to discover the Alps and beyond. The number of interesting, adventurous and exciting day trips to be had is simply endless – and having lived here for nearly 5 years I still haven't got anywhere near close to exhausting the list. The true beauty of Munich day trips though, is that they can all be enjoyed with the ease of the German public transport system, which is not only extensive and efficient but reasonably priced as well (great for solo travellers, particularly those who can't drive...like me!). Here are my Top 10 day trips from Munich to discover first:


1. NEUSCHWANSTEIN



The real life 'Disney Castle' – head up to the Marienbrücke for the best view.


2. CHIEMSEE



Take a boat trip out to the islands on the lake – the 'Men's', and the 'Women's'


3. LENGGRIES



Start at the river and either go hiking up one of the nearby hills, or on a rafting adventure!


4. PARTNACHKLAMM



Gaze upwards in awe as you walk through this impressive gorge.


5. SCHLOSSANLAGE SCHLEISSHEIM



Another impressive palace and grounds which can be found just on the outskirts of Munich.


6. STAFFELSEE



A great swimming lake – check out LIDO Beach & Burger in Murnau.


7. ANDECHS MONASTERY



Take a hike up from Ammersee up to Andechs abbey – sip a beer with this view before you.


8. WALCHENSEE



Well worth the train and bus journey, Walchensee's water is crystal clear.


9. SPITZINGSEE



Opt to go up the nearby gondola to the Rotwand, or e-bike around the lake.


10. SALZBURG



The cheap 'Bayern' train ticket will even take you all the way to Austria!
