What I personally like about Munich is the fact that wherever you are in the town you aren’t far from a park, this can’t be said for many cities of the world unfortunately. Places like the Olympic Park, Nymphenburg Palace Park or the English Garden are great opportunities to get away from it all not that Munich is such a the stress bundled city in comparison to places like London, Paris or New York for example. For photographic purposes I like the architectural features in & around the Olympic park such as BMW World, the four-Cylinder tower headquarters & the BMW Museum which are just across the road. Within the park itself there are enough reasons to get the camera out of the bag too & a lift to the top of the Olympic tower is on a clear day well worth the fee as you can enjoy an impressive view of the Alps from Austria right across to Switzerland.
The English Garden although overcrowded in Summer has a couple of interesting features such as the Chinese Tower beer garden, the Eisbach waterfall & around the corner a place where the melt water from the mountains gushes under a bridge providing a constant wave that is used by many surfers, this is a good opportunity to take action pictures.
Nympenburg is a super place for romantic walks especially in Autumn where the dominant, warm colours of the foliage combined with the pretty palace outbuildings are a real joy to shoot pictures of. If you are lucky you might even see Kazimir, a cute Brown Owl sitting in his tree hollow by one of the bridges. He is probably the most photographed Owl in Germany. The Palm Garden is also accessible within the Palace grounds where especially from Spring onwards there are colours abound from Crocuses & Tulips to rose gardens.
