5 Places to Watch a Beautiful Munich Sunset

A sunset is universally admired from the world over. The city of Munich, in Germany, has several beautiful and rustic vantage points to watch the sun go down.


Built for the 1972 Summer Olympic games, the Olympic Tower stands over 190 meters tall. The revolving restaurant at the top is the ideal location to watch a sun down. A lift brings people to the top, and the tower is open from nine AM to midnight daily, so there is plenty of time to see the view after the sun goes down too.

Alter Peter

The alter in Saint Peter’s Church offers a beautiful view of the sky and the city from inside the Church, or from the tower outside. While you wait for the sun to set, be sure to check out the masterpiece sculptures and frescoes that adorn the Church walls and ceiling.

Olympia Park

The man made hills of Olympia Park offer some nice vantage points of the city. The hills of the park are made from repurposed debris that was used in the ’72 games. Grab a mountain bike if you can and spend the day riding around outside.


Opposite Munich’s huge soccer stadium you will find an unusually named location called Garbage Hill. What you’re looking for is a hill with a windmill atop it, which offers a view of the city from the North.

The Town of Dachau

In the center of Dachau, a 1200 year old city, you will find a hill formed by glaciers with a restaurant at the top. That restaurant has one of the most beautiful views of the mountains in Munich, and the sunset over the city.
