Get some historical perspective at Altstadt von Fuessen and St. Peter's Church. Step off the beaten path and head to Queen Mary's Bridge (Marienbrucke) and Hl.-Geist-Spitalkirche. Venture out of the city with trips to Hohenschwangau (Neuschwanstein Castle & Alpseebad). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along English Garden, get curious at Deutsches Museum, see the interesting displays at Munich Residenz, and don't miss a visit to Marienplatz.
