A Day on the Isar

Morning

Setting off from the Müller’sche Volksbad after coffee or breakfast at Café im Volksbad, turn left at the baths along the Isar to the to the footbridge, which leads to Praterinsel. Walk through the teaching garden of the Alpine Museum (no entrance fee) and then across the island – making a brief stop at the cultural centre – until you reach Maximiliansbrücke, which will take you directly to the Maximilianeum. Pass the monument and turn right onto Sckellstr. Follow this street to Wiener Platz, its market stalls, and the Hofbräukeller. A narrow lane – An der Kreppe – runs from Wiener Platz to several of the historic inns found in the Glasscherben district. The Hofbräukeller offers reasonably priced food and a beer garden in summer.

Afternoon

Return to Sckellstr., cross Einsteinstr., and walk along Maria-Theresia-Str., flanked by beautiful Foundation Period and Art Nouveau houses. The Maximilian-Anlagen is a public park, and perfect for a spot of ambling. Regardless of the route you take, all paths will eventually lead you to the Friedensengel. Continue along for a few minutes until you reach Villa Stuck, the Art Nouveau museum par excellence. For a coffee break, try Wiener’s (Ismaninger Str. 71a), close to the No. 18 tram stop. Take the tram back to the city centre (Karlsplatz). The ride will take you past some of the most beautiful spots in Munich.
