One of the flights I'm considering on the way back from Bulgaria in mid-August has a Munich layover from 5pm on Sat night to 4pm Sun afternoon.
I'm thinking I could get a downtown hostel room, go out to dinner/beer on Sat night and sightsee a little on Sun morning.
Suggestions for a lone traveler for that night, morning? I'm especially interested in : ancient history, traditional culture, interesting architecture, dance, science... though for a US flight I probably will have to be heading to the airport by 12 or 1. Should I just wander downtown? Any stunning or very old churches or pre-Christian ruins?
Or would you think that's too short to enjoy anything and I should just take one of the flights w/only a 2 hr layover?
I was in Munich once before, but it was a couple decades ago.
