Munich with Kids

Overview

Quote:
The gardens in Munich are some of the most beautiful that I have ever seen. They are, of course, very well equipped with kids' parks.Quick Tips: Best Way To Get Around: The best way to get around Munich is definetly the U- and S-bahn system which works really well and is, for the most part, easy to understand if you don´t speak German. One thing that I found really useful was the postcard with the entire S-bahn U-bahn system on it. It fits in your day-pack, you can write on it, and it costs a lot less than a regular map.

The kids´ parks tend to get very busy after school hours . Don´t be surprised if other parents don´t take too much notice of what their post-baby kids are doing... the kids are free for the afternoon and (I´m not being mean here) it would take quite a lot of screaming to get the parents to notice that something may have gone awry.

There are a few restaurants in the garten that serve everything that you would expect. On the bigger lake, feeding the ducks and swans is something nice to do if you don´t want to deal with other kids.
