Modern Picture Gallery (Pinakothek der Moderne)#21 in Best Things To Do in Munich
Price & Hours
With the old comes the new, and so Munich added the Pinakothek der Moderne (Modern Picture Gallery) to the older museums centered in the Museum district. The sleek glass and concrete museum, finished in 2002, holds a number of exhibits related to modern art, architecture and design, including the Bavarian State collection of graphic art and the Technical University's architectural museum. Most travelers said they appreciated the wide variety of modern art, though some commented the entry fee was a little steep.
The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with extended hours on Thursdays until 8 p.m. Admission costs 10 euros (less than $12) for adults and is free for children 17 and younger. You'll find the Pinakothek der Moderne by hopping off the U-bahn at Königsplatz. The Nos. 27 and 28 trams also stop nearby. For additional information, 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.
