A1: Oktoberfest. This is the Bavarian beer festival starting every year in september. I expect it to take place in 2021.
A2: Hofbräuhaus. This is the most famous Bavarian restaurant. Very touristy but it is the original.
A3: Augustiner restuarants. If you don't want to go to the Hofbräuhaus I can at least adise you to go to one of the Augustiner restaurants. They are named after one of the most famous beer brands in town.

B1: Allianz Arena. This is the home of the Bayern Munich Football Club. It is difficult to get tickets for matches but you can book a tour.
B2: Säbener Straße. This is the training ground of the Bayern Munich Football Club and you can watch the players for free when public training takes place. Check blub home page in advance. When I was there in summer 2015 there were several thousand peopl watching.
B3: Olympiapark. This is the ground of the 1972 olympic games.

C1: Marienplatz. This is the square in front of the city hall.
C2: Frauenkirche. This is the most famous church in Munich.
C3: Viktualienmarkt. This is the most famous market in Munich. You can buy Bavarian specialities here.
C4: Leopoldstraße. This is the most importand boulevard in town.

D1: Neue Pinakothek. Important art museum in Munich.
D2: Alte Pinakothek. Important art museum in Munich focusing on elder art.
D3: Pinakothek der Moderne. Important art museum in Munich focusing on modern art.
D4: Deutsches Museum. This ts the most important tech museum in town. Many school classes go there. Me too.
D5: BMW Welt und Museum. This is the museum and exhibition of the Munich and Bavarian carmaker.

E1: Englischer Garten. This is the Central Park of Munich. Maybe 1 kilometer north of the center.

F1: Schloß Nymphenburg. This is the garden palace of our former kings.
F2: Residenz München. This is the city palace of our former kings.

G1: Airport. It is around 50 kilometers to the north-east and there are trains connecting it with the center. This is the 2nd largest airport in Germany. My impression is that the ticket controls focus on this route. I was checked on the way to the airport and on the way from the airport on my last air trip.
G2: Train station. We have direct trains to Vienna, Zürich, Italy, Prague and France. In additon to this there are direct german trains to Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Cologne.

if you have visited all thes places you know already around 50% of the city. In addition we have many smaller attractions for more specific interests. If you want to add you favorite, please feel free to do so. Reply to this

I always find it useful to have recommendations from a local on the things we should see in an area. We were in Munich for Ocktoberfest a few years ago so we didn't see several of the things mentioned on your list. We will have to return. Reply to this

I would like to add a chapter:

Day trips from Munich.
I see three kinds of destinations for day trips from the city:

H1: Mountains. The highest mountain in Germany is the Zugspitze (nearly 3000 meters high) and it is to the south of Munich.
H2: Castles. The most famous castle in the region is Neuschwanstein in the south-west of the city. Maybe try to avoid weekends and holidays, as this is one of the top attractions in Germany and known worldwide.
H3: Lakes. There are several lakes in the area: Starnberger See und Tegernsee close by to the south. Both are expensive residential areas. And Chiemsee to the east with its own castle, Schloss Herrenchiemsee. Reply to this
