On vacation in Munich in November, we spent several hours walking around the museum district which was close to our hotel and simple to find what we were looking for with the map the hotel provided. On the way to Alte Pinakothek (the art museum), we saw the Propylaen which is a grand city gate in the Neo-Classical style and the Glypothek, right next door, was build by King Ludwig I to keep his works of art. We didn't go in as it didn't look like much was going on and I'm not sure if you can but the architecture was interesting and the size was immense. Its a nice photo opportunity and quick stop.
