I fuelled up for the day at the recommended Cafe Glockenbach – it’s particularly important to stock up on food, because NO shops are open in Munich on Sundays, absolutely none – so if you haven’t been organised on Saturday, you can only eat at cafes.
The cafe was nice, with modern decor comfy seats and good street-watching opportunities – they also had plenty of outdoor seating (though in the cool spring air, you needed the accompanying blankets to be comfortable).
This was not French toast as I knew it...more Croque Monsieur-esq...but still tasty, though the salad was drowning in dressing!
After enjoying my breakfast I walked towards the main train station, via Karlsplatz and Neuhauser street.
As mentioned before, nothing is open on Sundays, but there were still plenty of people milling around – likely headed for cafes (or church!).
I also popped into the Botantical Gardens on my way, featuring a statue of Neptune – probably more inspiring when the fountain is filled!
Then, after my wander, I met a friend at the bus tour start point (at Bahnhofsplatz) and off we went...
We did all three tourist routes: "City Tour", "Nymphenburg-Olympia Tour" and "Schwabing Tour", each lasting an hour for a very reasonable €20.
First up was the Nymphenburg castle/palace which we circled through but where I’ll definitely be going again to explore inside the expansive buildings.

By this time we were a little chilled from sitting outside so treated ourselves to some hot drinks before boarding the bus for one last trip – this time around my neighbourhood ‘Schwabing’.

The 'Schwabing' tour took us around sights such as the English Gardens, Pinokothek and Leopoldstrasse...

After the bus tour, I realised that I hadn't stocked up on food and so I decided to visit the little tea shop opposite my apartment for 'dinner'! It was super cute and I treated myself to a hot chocolate and a piece of homemade cake to round off my weekend of naughty eating!
