Dear formwork expert,

BAUMA 2016 is knocking at our doors. We have prepared a guide to munich to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

What to do in Munich when not at BAUMA

Munich has a lot to offer besides the BAUMA. If you are lucky, you have some hours of spare time or maybe wven a day or two and can do something for yourself.
Here are a few things I can recommend you to do or see in and around munich:

Getting around:
Munich is famous for notorious traffic jams, especially on the motorways around the center of the city. If you can, avoid using a car for your commuting… The munich subway “MVG” is safe, usually clean and very fast. If you miss a train, there is usually the next one coming within a few minutes.
The MVG offers a android and iOS app that features a mobile ticket purchasing as well, so you don’t have to get your ticket at a machine. There are also multi day tickets.

For all car-lovers out there: The BMW Museum showcases historic BMW models. The Museum Building itself is also worth a visit for anyone in the construction trade. 
The Deutsches Museum offers a huge collection of engineering works since the beginning of industrialisation and before. If you like engineering, this is the place to go. Its big, so plan at least 1-2 hrs.
The Neue Pinakothek is one of my favorite art museums. The collection shows ca. 400 paintings and sculptures of the 19th century. I always go there when in munich. If you like it more modern, see the Pinakothek der Moderne or the Museum Brandhorst. Both museums are close to each other and can be done in one session. Architecture of both is interesting as well.

Dining out:
Here is a personal collection of good places for all palates:
Bavarian/German Food:






My favorite places in munich for good food are: Brenner Grill (situated very central, usually full, need reservation), Käfer Schenke (very good food, very good service, fine food shop on street level). If you like the typical bavarian style, there are a lot of breweries that run their own Restaurants. My favorite classic bavarian is the Augustiner Restaurant right in the center of munich. "The Grill" is another highly recommended place for obviously grilled food right in the middle of munich.
Reservation is basically needed in all restaurants in Munich during the BAUMA. 

Since i have a family, my nights out have become a rare occasion. So i am not an expert on the current situation. The Heart is apparently the place to go at the moment. If you are into a drink in a bar, check out Schumann's Bar or the Falk's Bar in the Hotel Bayrischer Hof

I hope this will help you a little to make your trip even more fun.

best wishes for a successful fair, have a safe trip and don’t forget to visit us in Hall A2/booth 209

PS: a big "Thank you” for input goes out to munich local Joachim from Kerscher construction supply.
