“Have breakfast at Kempinski Hotel Airport Munich and then visit Domberg Freising, a little village near the airport.

Following this, have lunch at Brauerei Weihenstephan, the oldest brewery in the world, which also provides exclusive tours. If that doesn’t take your fancy, visit the old Bavarian town of Erding. While in Munich’s city center you should visit the Marienplatz (Munich city hall), the famous Viktualienmarkt and the Dallmayr (delicatessen). To finish your day, enjoy a steak dinner at Kathi’s Steakhouse.”

  1. Tantris, with over 35 years of excellence

  3. Acquarello, for best high class Italian food in town, chose this Michelin-starred restaurant

BeSt Shop

“Oberpollinger is a luxury shopping center in the heart of the city, ideal for the elite traveler.”

BeSt to do

“If you only have the time to visit one museum head for the Pinakothek of Modern Art (see page 19). The open and spacious design of this building has made a decisive contribution to turning this multipurpose concept into a reality. With its impressive 82 feet high glass dome, the rotunda marks the starting point for all VIP and other tours of the building. Here, visitors can stroll around as if they are on an Italian piazza and are given free rein to their thoughts as they move from one exhibition area to the next.”

“At One Concierge we have an unlimited supply of VIP options and luxury amenities.

“The VIP options for a trip to Munich can include but are not limited to destination tour guides, luxury transportation services to and from the sights, and even personal shopping whilst at the sights if required. When our clients have the desire to travel and sightsee anywhere in the world, they can always expect to be treated like royalty.

The Frauenkirche, The Cathedral Of Our Blessed Lady

Built in the late fifteenth Century this is Munich’s most prized landmark. This cathedral can seat 20,000, and was victim to several heavy bombings during World War II. In the cathedral, one can take a smooth climb to the top of the South Tower and enjoy a gorgeous view of the Alps. This monument has been fully restored and is now often referred to as one of the most beautiful sights in Munich. Private tours of any size can be provided upon request.

Marienplatz

Located in the heart of the city, this square was once home to outdoor markets and festive tournaments during the Middle Ages. With a rebuilt gothic council hall, ballroom and tower, this square is one of the most prominent sights for all to see. Now adorned with numerous shops and restaurants, Marienplatz brings in millions of people each year who come to see the magnificent architecture and take in the beauty of the everyday hustle and bustle of the city center. Our private tour guides can be called upon to show you parts of Marienplatz that only the locals know about and few tourists are ever given privilege to. A truly VIP experience.”
