There are quite a few nice restaurants that are not too pricey and actually produce decent meals. There are alot of independent interesting shops and art galleries out side of the very central chain store shopping area. In the center of the city everyone in Munich appears to be out shopping. I am told it is a favorite pass time for the locals. There is also a strip of designer shops that cater for the rather well off Munichans - which I am told there are plenty of. I also really like the markets that sells fresh foods of which mostly appears to be very good quality. Cheese, Olives, Breads etc...
We spend a bit of time wandering the english gardens and along the river. The snow is gone and the sun is out which is very lovely. The trees are all bare still but some of the bushes are starting to blossom which is very exciting. The gardens are mainly tree lined avenues and open grassy fields. Not as wild as Richmond Park though by any means. We only really get around about 1/2 of it which is plenty to keep a few decent hours occuplied. In the gardens there are several beer gardens of various sizes which would make a very wonderful place to be in the summer sunshine.
I plan to get to all 3 art galleries but due to some late nights and sleep in's there really isn't time for them all so we only go to the Modern Art Gallery (hot tip is that it is only 1 Euro on Sundays!). It just means I will one day have to return to compete it all. What a shame!
