MUNICH –(MunichNOW Life)– On a very cold and grey day we happened along the entrance to Munich‘s Riemer See, a small man-made lake behind the Riem Arcaden shopping mall. The large and well-maintained recreation area serves the east side of the city, and in particular, the explosive growth in local apartments.

11. If you go:
There is free parking right off De Gasperi Bogen, the road that runs past the backside of the fairground – and in front of the Riem Arcaden. There are lots of good walking paths and the short hike to Viewing Point is rewarded with a very pleasant view.
