TOP PLACES TO PROPOSE IN AND AROUND MUNICH
Unless it’s raining cats and dogs, it’s not hard to fall in love with Munich, and even so, rain it’s supposed to be romantic isn’t it? Anyways, the point is that Munich is a lovely city, to visit and to live in (by now many of you know my reasons to love living here) and it also makes up for a great place to pop the question. Yup, that question!
Munich has some magical places, some of them even impress the locals when they see it for the first time, and they can be the perfect scenario for a romantic proposal. Whether you are a local or just visiting the city with your loved one, here are the top places to propose in and around Munich, plus some insider tips to make sure you won’t have any more excuses to take the next important step in your lives:
THE OLYMPIC TOWER
With a great view over town, especially at night, the Olympic Tower offers two great spots for your proposal: at the rotating Restaurant 181 or at a quieter place above the restaurant, at the terrace.
This amazing park is the most popular one in Munich, and it offers great spots to pop the question. That being by the water canals, the lake surrounded by swans or at the beautiful Monopteros, which offers a beautiful view over the park and city.
ST. PETER’S CHURCH
It might not be so pleasant to get up there climbing the old stairwell, especially if one of you is afraid of heights like me. Though, the view over the old town and especially of the Marienplatz is worth the while.
In the middle of the Olympic Park and across the Olympic Tower, there is a small hill called Olympiaberg, or “Olympic Mountain”. This place has a beautiful view over the park and the city, especially at sunset.
NYMPHENBURG PALACE No matter the season, this place is romantic throughout the entire year. Whether covered with snow or filled with flowers during the summer, the Nymphenburg Palace and its park are stunning for proposing to your lover. You can pop the question at the palace’s stairs on the outside, by the lake, on a gondola ride, at the Monopteros, or on a walk around the park.
This small but beautiful and romantic park is located between the old town and the Englischer Garten. It’s a very photogenic and beloved place by tourists and locals alike. It is beautiful throughout the entire year, especially summer when it’s filled with flowers.
Even though it’s 2 hours away from Munich, I had to include this one on the list, it’s nothing less than one of the top attractions in Germany, and one of the most romantic castles in the world. You may decide whether you want to propose by the castle, at the Hohenschwangau Castle, which offers a beautiful view to the Neuschwanstein, or even at the pretty lake nearby.
This enormous lake located around 1 hour away from Munich, it’s a beautiful place where you can visit 2 pretty islands, Fraueninsel and Herreninsel, “Women’s island” and “Men’s island” respectively. One of them being where the famous Herrenchiemsee Palace is located (built by Ludwig II, the same who built the Neuschwanstein Castle). No doubt a stunning place for a romantic proposal.
