One of our favorite Autumn Activities in Munich to enjoy with Kids is walking around the English Garden (pro-tip; grab some roasted chestnuts to snack on along the way!).

However, if you want to visit some new places, we suggest Nymphenburg Palace and Botanical Garden, Westpark and a long walk along the Isar.

The changing autumn colors, the sweet sound of leaves crunching beneath your feet, and collecting chestnuts is a guarantee for a happy day!

After a walk through Westpark, you should take a rest at Cafe Gans am Wasser. While you sip your warm tea you can enjoy the cozy and peaceful atmosphere with your kids.

They also have a lot of concerts, flea markets and circus shows here just for kids, so be sure to check this cute little place out.

3. Visit Some Munich Museums

We love museums all year long, but during the rainy season in Munich, we take shelter in museums more frequently. (On Sundays there are many that are only 1€ entry!)

Although Deutches Museum is always a good choice, we would also suggest that this Fall season you visit the Kinder und Jugend Museum.

4. Take A Trip To Legoland

Legoland is always a good idea, but especially in October!

Full of spooky decorations, magical pumpkins and treasure hunts, it’s a perfect little getaway for anyone who loves Halloween season.

If you’re looking for something more active to do with your family this Autumn, a great idea is to try and catch one of the last sunny days in Munich with a family hike to a mountain hut.

Looking for an easy hike with good food? Then you need to visit the Berggasthof Neureuth at Lake Tegernsee.

Enjoy the view and Kaiserschmarrn !

6. Visit The Hellabrunn Zoo

This is something that we usually do in spring time, but with their large array of inside exhibits, it is also a nice autumn idea as well.

But, if we catch some more sunny days, we will definitely try to spend a day walking around outside also at this famous Munich zoo!
