Munich with Kids

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.${QuickSuggestions} ${BestWay} 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. Another thing that a lot of people don´t know, is that kids under 15 years of age only use half of the punches that an adult would. Knowing that saved a lot of time and money buying extra tickets. Kids of course love the streetcars and buses, so if you feel inclined, the strife karten work on those too.

I have never seen a museum that holds so much stuff. It seriously has everything about everything within its walls! I brought a 5 year old and a 7 year old and we spent the day looking at cars and boats and trains and solar energy vs. chemical energy. Twice a day (sometimes it´s four) they have this huge Fleischmann train set which is all run by computers that they present. I thought that was really great.

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 numerous parks... so check the maps and maybe decide to go to a few a day so that you can find your favorite ones.

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.
