Here a few ideas to make sure that you do not get bored during the long Easter weekend. 

Saturday, 19 April:
EASTER SHOPPING: With the shops closed on Friday, Sunday and Monday, Saturday is your only chance to stock up supplies. If your fridge is full and you are still in the mood for shopping, you could make a short trip to Ottobrun where the Bareso Bistro is organising a Saturday market with local suppliers (10am to 3pm) and special guests like the Gustavo, whose upcycled earrings, sewing machines and coat pegs look very beautiful. If you want to stay more central, Markt der Sinne on Praterinsel may be your choice (also open on Sunday and Monday).

Sunday, 20 April:
MUSEUM DAY 1: David Shrigley's Drawing exhibition in the Pinakothek der Moderne has been met with a lot of excitement, in the first place due to its unusual concept that allowed everybody who can draw to participate and co-create the exhibits. Check it out today for just 1EUR (since it's Sunday). Anna has also contributed a drawing, so we are quite excited to see the result.

Monday, 21 April:
MUSEUM DAY 2: Münchner Stadtmuseum (city museum of Munich) is a real jewel often unjustly overlooked by locals and visitors alike. Apart from the very entertaining sections permanently on display (the historical musical instruments section is especially recommended), there is always a great selection of temporary exhibitions. Here's what's on now: Asylum at the Stadtmuseum (African puppets and masks), Hermann Landshof Retrospective (photographs from 1930s to 1970s), M.T. Wetzlar silversmith's (Jewish family business aryanized by the Nazis) and our personal highlight - Soundlab1, the museum's music collection relaunched as a "sound laboratory" that allows you to experiment with the exhibits. The museum is open on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. Here's some additional motivation from the museum staff: during the Easter holidays every visitor will get a nougat Easter egg while supplies last.

SPRING SPRAYING: And here's another idea for any sunny day: take some friends and spray cans (best place to buy cans in Munich is the Ghostyard shop in Westend) and head to Tumblinger Strasse (Schlachthofviertel). Find a wall and spray something awesome or simply try something and have some laughs. We certainly had a lot of fun when we did this!
