While I was in Munich took the U-Bahn from my Hotel to Marienplatz which was a short distance from the Holiday Inn Munich Leuchtenbergring.
The Hotel is very good value and when I stayed in late April the rooms were about 72 USD a day.
After taking a walk around the beautiful Marienplatz I took a short ride on the U-Bahn to the Deutsches Museum.The Museum has a strange name since it is a Science and Technology centered exhibition. It includes every aspect of Science and Tech that you can think of and is worth your time.
The Marienplatz area of Munich is a geographic and cultural center of Munich and is a good starting point to any visit to the area.
