Amazing   by matseb
 

Description:
THE town of skyscrapers in Germany! Besides, I can't think of another place in Europe with such a cumulation. They are very fancy, too! Most all are used by banks - built mostly with money from us citizens... The Commerzbank tower is the tallest in Europe, anyway (259 m w/o antennas, consists of 56 storeys). Some can be visited for skyline sightseeing. 368 banks are based in "FFM". Stock exchange ranks 4 globally.

Directions:
located in the city center (one is located on the fair ground nearby)

Beware of drug attics   by matseb
 

Description:
Avoid the area between RR station and Taunusanlage (especially Kaiserstr. and Elbestr.) as those are the worst streets. Drug attics and all kinds of other criminals walk around!

Totally unique   by matseb
 

Description:
You're open minded and like to relax? You HAVE TO go there on a sunny day in the Summer. It's a huge park (just meadows and trees and some canals) where people go to get tanned, to relax, to play sports and to swim. At the Eisbach, a small creek nearby the "Haus der Kunst", it's common to lay naked.

MVG and DB\S-Bahn   by matseb
 

'Mode':
AROUND

Category:
Subway/Metro

Getting TO/AROUND:
This city provides one of the most dense public transportation systems in Germany. There are rural trains, subways, streetcars and buses. The rural trains are called "S-Bahn" and are operated by the "S-Bahn GmbH", an affiliate of "Deutsche Bahn" corporation, the national railroad company. The subway is operated by the City administration. The others by "Stadtwerke München = SWM". Besides the S-Bahn, all are merged to "Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft = MVG". All components work together in a tariff system called "Münchner Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund = MVV". So your ticket is valid on every kind of public transport. Riding without a ticket will be fined with 40 EUR.
