Friedensengel is a fascinating district of Munich, located in the northeast quadrant of the Old Tow, which begins at Prinz-Carl-Palais and parallels Maximilianstrasse. This area is renowned for its impressive galleries, cafes (most with free wi-fi), upscale shopping, fabulous restaurants, and the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, a premier 5-star hotel built in 1856. Other nearby attractions include the Wiener Platz and the famous Hofbräukeller beer garden. The Friedensengel area is home to several famous museums, and the local stadium, the Prinzregentstadion, has an outdoor summer swimming pool that transforms into an ice skating rink in the winter.
- Stop by the Angel of Peace monument on Prinzregentenstrasse in this area of Munich; built in 1896, it commemorates the Treaty of Versailles.
- Check out the Hofbrauhaus am Platzl in Munich, which is the most celebrated beer hall in the world; if you are visiting at the right time, you can enjoy Oktoberfest, which was first held in 1810.
- Visit one of the many exquisite museums in Friedensengel, including the internationally recognized Haus der Kunst, or House of Art, and the Bavarian National Museum.
Friedensengel is easy to get to from other parts of Munich. Visitors coming from outside of the country can fly into the Franz Josef Strauss International Airport, which is about 30 kilometres northeast of Munich. Once in the city, travellers can ride a tram to the Friedensengel district, which is about 15 minutes away. Many locals and tourists also chose to bike around the city. There is a bike rental system in Munich, allowing visitors to use a bicycle to get to their destination and then return it. When you reach the neighbourhood, most of the attractions are within walking distance.
