[[Munich]]'s '''City Center''' (''Altstadt'', or "Old City") is easily navigable with all the major "must see" sights easy to find by travellers. It is in Munich's center where eyes gaze upon architectural masterpieces from the Neues Rathaus, Frauenkirche, and taste the wonderous Hofbräu beer all the while listening to "Take Me Home Country Roads" in the Hofbräuhaus. Since all subway trains and trams intersect at either the main station or any of the underground stations in the vicinity of Munich's center, it is a great place to start any day of sightseeing. End your day here with a beer at the Hofbräuhaus and dedicate a few minutes to Pachebel's "Canon" or Mozart's "Le Nozze di Figaro" performed by street musician group Tal Consort, under the arches of the Altes Rathaus or under the store fronts between Marienplatz and Karlsplatz.

*'''Neues Rathaus/Glockenspiel'''— During the summer, a curious sight appears every morning in Marienplatz. Hundreds of tourists begin craning their necks skyward (and it's obvious they are tourists, because the locals are all darting back and forth between the halted masses trying to cross the square and get their errands done!) to see the ''Glockenspiel'' work its magic on the front facade of the Neues Rathaus (New City Hall). As the automated clockwork figures come out to dance, the bells play and the tourists gape. But the Glockenspiel is truly a piece of art, it was built of handmade parts long before automation was the buzzword of the day, and it's still entrancing. There is also a view point in one of its towers (entrance fee €4).
[[Image:Munich Frauenkirche Inside.JPG|thumb|Inside the Frauenkirche]]
*'''Frauenkirche''' (Church of Our Lady) — The Frauenkirche is topped by two copper onion-domed towers recognizable from a distance. Instead of adding sculptural ornamentation in carved stone to the exterior like other typical Gothic churches, the Frauenkirche differs from all contemporary churches in its plain brick simplicity. The church was completed in 1488. The legendary ''Teufelstritt'', or devil's footstep, stems from the large amount of light inside the Frauenkirche that seems to come from nowhere thanks to the large columns that block the view of the windows. According to legend, Jörg of Halspach made a deal with the devil that he could build a church that had a spot where not a single window could be seen from. From the vestibule, looking down the center aisle (as long as the high Baroque altar covered the windows at the very back of the church) there appeared to be no windows at all. The devil stamped his foot in a fit of pique, leaving his "footprint" on a paving stone immediately inside the entrance. Another version tells that this is where the devil stood when he curiously regarded and ridiculed the windowless church that Halsbach had built. In fact, it is a large casting in the square base plate, and none of the side windows can be seen from the spot when one looks to the high altar. The stone is readily visible because it is mustard yellow rather than red and grey like the other tiles. Right to the entrance is a monumental tomb of Emperor Ludwig IV of Bavaria, the work of Hans Krumpper.
*'''Michaelskirche'''— The largest Renaissance church north of the Alps was built between 1583-1599 thanks to Duke Wilhelm V, called The Pious. Despite nearly bankrupting [[Bavaria]], Munich was left with an amazingly beautiful structure that houses an extremely unified iconographic program. "Iconographic program" is just an art term for the overall organized progression of religious images that corresponds to a theme. In the church crypt are the tombs of many members of Wittelsbach dynasty, including that of the "mad king" Ludwig II.

Nowadays, the embodiment of Bavarian beer culture is visited only by tourists. More likely than not you will hear the famous "eins, zwei, g'suffa!" song at least once if you spend any time there at all. Basically it means "one, two, drink up!"
