A science and technology museum like no other (according to travelers), the Deutsches Museum brims with exhibits on everything from transportation to mining, bridge building and musical instruments. But across the six floors and almost 12 miles of halls, you'll also find an Internet cafe, an expansive planetarium and the Kinderreich, a section geared toward children that teaches them about science and technology through interactive exhibits. You'll also find the Center for Transportation, the Verkehrszentrum, which for an additional admission fee you can view an array of transportation-related exhibits.

Recent travelers praised the diversity and careful display of the exhibits, saying visitors of all ages will be sure to enjoy. Located in an imposing building along the Isar River, you can find the Deutsches Museum off the Isartor S-bahn stop. The museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets cost 11 euros ($13) for adults and 4 euros (less than $5) for children ages 6 to 15. Kids 5 and younger get in for free. For additional information on exhibits, events and more, visit the museum's website.

#1 English Garden (Englischer Garten)

This large public park, which reaches from the city center to the northeastern city limits, is one of Munich's must-dos. Named for the informal English style of rolling hills and open landscaping, the Englischer Garten contains several popular biergartens, a handful of eclectic monuments and a boating lake, among lots of jogging and biking paths.

Recent travelers mightily enjoyed their time here and recommend renting a bike or a rowboat to explore it. Many also commented on what a retreat it was from an otherwise city vacation. To spend a sunny day in the English Garden, hop off Tram 18 at one of the parkside stops. Admission is free.
