Munich attractions and Travel Tips

Car Rental in Munich


With Bavarian beer, eye-catching architecture, and a diverse array of museums and galleries, Munich is a fantastic tourist destination. Experience traditional Bavarian dirndl skirts, lederhosen, fairytale buildings, and much more. There are also plenty of historical attractions to visit with rental cars from Munich, including Neuschwanstein Castle and Nuremberg. What’s more, spectacular alpine lakes and mountain vistas make for excellent active excursions when you rent a car in Munich.

Experience Munich’s best museums and galleries

Munich hosts over 80 museums, which include some of the best in Europe. You’ll find everything from minimalist modern art spaces to grand centuries-old mansions. For classic pieces by Leonardo da Vinci through Rembrandt, head to Alte Pinakothek, one of the world's oldest art galleries. More modern items can be found next door, in Museum Brandhorst's collection of modern and pop art, or the Pinakothek der Moderne’s impressive four-in-one collection of important nineteenth-century-plus artworks. The latter has a particularly noted Bauhaus collection and a fine architectural museum. 

Most of Munich’s museums are conveniently located around Maxvorstadt, an ancient university district with charming bookshops. Known as the Kunstareal (Art District), you’ll be hard pushed to find a more concentrated collection of fine museums in the world. These include Glyptothek, Haus der Kulturinstitute, Lenbachhaus, Staatliche Antikensammlungen, and Staatliches Museum Ägyptischer Kunst. Outside the museum district, an impressive collection of folk and decorative arts can be found in the picturesque Bayerisches Nationalmuseum. For a taste of regality, take your Munich car hire to Schloss Nymphenburg Palace in Munich’s Western District. This is a sprawling seventeenth-century estate with Baroque period rooms, impressive porcelain collections, and a large English-style garden with manicured lawns, canals, and pavilions.
