BMW Museum The BMW Museum, housed in a half-spherical building, is located next to the Bavarian Motor Works headquarters in Northern Munich. Walk through the museum and see the cars and motorcycles spanning the whole gamut of BMW's history.

Open daily from 9am-5pm.  For more information call 089 38 22-33 07. 
 

ENGLISCHER GARTEN (English Gardens) Then Englischer Garten stretches along the banks of the Isar River in central Munich.  These gardens were created in 1789 at the site of a former hunting ground.  The English Garden is Munich's version of "Central Park," and is always busy with street entertainers and people enjoying a brief lunch break in the fresh air.  You may rent boats at the Kleinhesseloher See, and there is also a beer garden near the lake.

Open daily from dawn until dusk.

ODEONSPLATZ
This square in central Munich is located at the intersection of two great Munich boulevards: Ludwigstrasse and Prinzregentenstrasse.  The National Theater and the Feldherrnhalle are both located at this square, which lies a block away from the famed Residenz.  Take the time to visit the beautiful gardens of the Hofgarten, located adjacent to the plaza. 

From the Odeonsplatz, walk down Prinzregentenstrasse towards the Englischer Garten.  This route will take you past the steel and glass Bavarian State Chancellery, the Haus der Kunst (which exhibits Nazi approved art), the Bavarian National Museum, down to the Isar river and the Angel of Peace, a statue which commemorates the end of the Franco-Prussian War.
