DK Publishing is the leader in "Top 10" travel guides and their Munich edition is no exception. Accurate and easy to read maps, detailed train/metro line guides, and top 10 lists for nearly everything the city has to offer. I especially enjoy reading their recommendations for how many hours to plan for a museum/point of interest visit. This came in especially handy when visiting the Deutsches Museum. I originally planned to spend three hours there and ended up dedicating nearly an entire day based on the guide. The day was enjoyable and I was able to browse through all the exhibits - which were amazing and I recommend this museum if you are visiting Munich!
The guide is also handy to have as you take guided tours through the city. We all can't remember the names of the sights and the hundreds of facts behind them, but you can refer back later in your hotel or on your trip home.
Don't miss the section in the back on commonly used words/phrases and their translations. This came in handy a few times!
