Last Minute Urlaub - Hotel München Zentrum

It’s a familiar theme: Stress at work, your partner complains about too little time together, the children are whining and the desire to escape everyday life grows stronger by the minute. Leave everything behind and switch off for just a few days.

First, you should consider how long you wish to travel for and which dates are possible. In order to help you find answers we have compiled a few questions for you:

  • Do you want to book a weekend break or a long weekend break?

Tips: Find a Last Minute Hotel in Munich

When you have chosen a date, you can start looking for a hotel. Note that the location of the hotel is important. In Munich especially, it makes sense to choose a central location. Usually on a city break, time is of the essence; it would therefore be a shame to spend your precious time on public transport, in taxis, or looking for a place to park. Find interesting offers e.g. with Hotel Dolomit Munich at Munich Central Station or with Hotel Cristal in Munich City Centre. Both hotels are located the heart of Munich, just a few minutes’ walk from the central station and the shopping precincts and are ideal for a last minute stay in Munich. We can also recommend portals such as, and Have you already checked for a Last Minute Hotel in Munich on one of these portals? Then don’t forget to look at the hotels’ own websites: after all, these hotel directories don’t always have the best offers!

3 days to your Last Minute Holiday

As the tension grows… so does the anticipation! But have you thought of everything?

  • Has the hotel confirmed your reservations?
  • Have the plane/train/bus tickets arrived; is the car ready?
  • Do you wish to reserve a table for an evening meal, or book tickets for an event?
  • Have you made a note of the sights that you wish to see? (Note the opening times! In winter especially, you could otherwise be left out in the cold! (e.g., at the zoo))
  • Check the weather (the forecast is quite reliable these days)
  • Check that the contents of your suitcase are in good working order
  • Of course Munich has plenty of great shopping opportunities, but it would be annoying if, 30 minutes before you leave for the opera, you were to find that your high heels wobble and the lipstick in your clutch bag is no longer as intensely red as it once was.
  • Now’s the time to take a look at the contents of your suitcase! It’s best to lay out your clothes in the outfits you envisage and check that all is well. There’s still time to make last-minute adjustments.
  • How about cosmetics? Favourite shower gel/shampoo, hair dryer, makeup, razor… and don’t forget your toothbrush and sun cream!

1 day to your Last Minute Holiday

  • At least 1 pair of comfortable shoes for the city tour of Munich
  • Umbrella/raincoat
  • Evening outfit (have you planned to visit an opera, theatre or concert hall?)
  • City outfit (try to combine items so that you don’t have to take two of everything. For instance, choose a jacket that matches your evening outfit, but which can also be worn as a light jacket over a jumper the next day)
  • Rucksack or large bag for city map and drink
  • Sun glasses and sun cream
  • Cash

If you’ve been busy over the last few days, it’s time to put your feet up and look forward to your holiday. Otherwise, we recommend that you go through the tips once more from the start.
