One day in Munich at Radio Days Europe 24: Natalie Diel, Gong 96.3

The Radio Days Europe ’24 conference schedule is packed from early morning til late night for the conference days so if you fly in early here are some suggestions of how to spend an extra day from a well known Munich Radio industry local.


Morning show presenter Natalie Diel from Radio Gong 96.3 loves Munich!

The mountains and lakes around it and life in the city. Bars, restaurants, pop-up stores… She loves discovering the latest spots and trends for the radio and passing them on to listeners. And she knows what you should definitely see and do in Munich.

We asked Natalie to give us her recommendations of what do do in Munich for anyone coming in for Radio Days. She recommends:

Start the day with...

A classic Weißwurst breakfast at the “Herrschaftszeiten” in the Tal. A young and fresh pub where you can enjoy a classic Weißwurst breakfast with pretzels and sweet mustard. And for those who don’t eat meat: It’s also available in vegan 😊

Sights, favourite places, insider tips

Viktualienmarkt: Fresh flowers, the smell of coffee, lots to see. Not to be missed when visiting Munich.

Marienplatz with the town hall and carillon…

And then it’s up to the Alter Peter, the tower from which you can look out over the whole city… On a clear day you can see as far as the Alps…

A detour to the Bayerischer Hof, where most of the stars who come to Munich spend the night. From Michael Jackson, Robbie Williams and the Stones.

From Odeonsplatz we take the U5 to Ostbahnhof, because this is where the Werksviertel-Mitte is located, a little insider tip for a visit to Munich. Everything here is very urban: small shops in colourful containers… Mostly Munich start-ups and brands. You can take a ride on the Ferris wheel… With a view of the sheep that live on a roof here in the Werksviertel 😊

A coffee in between

at “Alrighty”, the new sustainable coffee brand made in Munich with its own roastery…


at Fitzroy, an Australian restaurant with Munich’s highest roof terrace. You can eat delicious food on the glazed fronts and also have a spectacular view indoors…

You can round off the evening

From the very top to the very bottom 😊

In the cellar bar “Call Soul” in Schwabing in the English Garden. Here you’ll find the most unusual cocktails in town…
