FACT: Munich is one of the most beautiful cities on Planet Earth.
It therefore makes sense that Munich is, of course, swimming in glorious photo opportunities and picture-perfect scenes simply made for the gram.
And whether your goal is to fish for likes to simply collect some stunning photos for your own memories, we’re here to help. Here’s a list of some of the most Instagrammable places in Munich, from classic views and monuments to cool cafes and hidden spots even some locals don’t even know about.
Address: Siegestor (near the Universität U-Bahn Station and LMU)
2. Juristische Bibliothek (The Law Library)
Address: Marienplatz 8 (Inside the Rathaus)
NOTE: It’s only possible to visit for photography purposes with a guided tour of the Town Hall (which you book in advance) BUT since it’s a public library, anybody can go in to read, study, etc. Standard Munich library rules apply (e.g. no bags, leave your stuff in the lockers, etc.) But like, don’t be a prick and come here just for the gram. People do actually come here to work, so if you do take photos, make sure it’s quiet and respectful.
