Hello! We will arrive in Munich on 19 September, my husband's 40th birthday. We have Oktoberfest and sight-seeing plans for later in the week, but I would love recommendations from locals about something special I could do to surprise him the afternoon or evening on our first day-- something we might not find on our own. He loves music, soccer, film, fall weather and is looking forward to exploring the city in general. He loves to travel, loves to learn, and likes to experience a place like a local (even though neither of us speaks very much German). I'd love your non-touristy recommendations! Danke schön!!

You could take a train trip to one of the nearby lakes it takes about an hour on the train to Starnberger See or to Ammersee (Herschau) Trains Go once or twice an hour and you can get discounted tickets either as a group or on the Bayern ticket so don’t pay the full price. A walk around the lake stop for a beer or coffee and cake. Beautiful bit afternoon 😀

You could also do a stadium tour at allianz arena.
Or if you want to have a drink in a special location, go to „Alte Uttig“ it‘s a ship on a bridge it‘s not fancy or so,more alternative.
Or if the weather is good, the classic beergarden! I like the „Hirschgarten“. Or just grab a beer at the kiosk on „Reichenbachbrücke“ and sit on the Isar.

Hey Dana,
I really like the guided tours from „weisser Stadtvogel“ sounds touristy but they take you to places you usually only find by accident. For the Birthday you could try the nightwatch tour. Your guide is a man from the medievil night watch and you start the tour with a medievil dinner.
(I‘m not sure if they do the tour in english...sorry!)
