Has anyone been? I'm going on Thursday for four days. What's good to do/see/eat/drink/take photos of/etc?
Just there you have the town hall that has those figures that move around on the hour and the bells and crap. Round the corner is the Hofbrauhaus where you definitely have to go, drink steins - try all the different beers, eat pretzl (bretze in Bavarian) and then go for dinner at the bottom of the town hall. It's a fucking massive resturant. Meat a plenty if you like or kase spaetzeli (which incidentally I had for dinner last night)if you don't.
Englische Beergarten is nice, you should be able to do some boozing there at this time of year.
Eat some riberderschi (sp? - fried potato cakes) from the streets, gebrante mandeln (candied almonds) and shit like that. Not sure how much will be around as I was there last December and it was Christmas market season.
also have a walk round the Olympic Park which is really lovely. It's not a massive city centre so basically just walk around and you'll find great stuff to eat/drink/do.
Make sure you get the bus to the zoo as well if the weather's nice.
(loads of shops along here)you'll find the Movenpick restaurant, sling a right when you hit a road. I loved that place when I was a kid, couldn't find it when I was there but meine mutter says it's there.
best things ever.
and surfers in the river running through the Englischer (sp?) Garten. Very odd.
meet me at schoenefeld airport around 3pm?
