Where To Stay Louis Hotel (rooms from £140; louis-hotel.com). You couldn’t ask for a better location: everything worth visiting is walkable from here. The rooms are minimal but cosy, the bathrooms are beautiful and the view of Viktualienmarkt square and the gourmet food market is fantastic. Dining in the hotel restaurant, Emiko (Japanese fusion with a little taste of Bavaria), meanwhile, is fantastic. If you need relaxation, are craving nature and have more time on your hands, stay in Das Kranzbach (rooms from £195; daskranzbach.de), a beautiful spa hotel an hour from the city in a forest at the foot of the Alps. My favourite view is looking out from the sauna on to the green trees surrounded by white mountaintops. What To See The city’s museums are must-visits. Haus der Kunst and Pinakothek der Moderne are globally respected modern art havens, while at the traditional end of the scale the Nymphenburg Palace — itself stunning — has the … [Read more...] about Veronika Heilbrunner’s guide to Munich

ARE, Sweden — One last comeback complete. One last medal. Five days after crashing in super-G, Lindsey Vonn bounced back to win the bronze medal in the world championship downhill Sunday in the final race of her career. “I laid it all on the line. That’s all I wanted to do today,” Vonn said. “I have to admit I was a little bit nervous, probably the most nervous I’ve ever been in my life. I wanted to finish strong so badly.” It’s a medal that brings Vonn full circle: the American’s two silvers at the 2007 worlds on the same course in Are were the first two major championship medals of her career. “She has been business as usual this whole week, saying I’m racing to win,” said Karin Kildow, Vonn’s sister. “I was like, ‘Just maybe make it down and maybe stand up.’ But she was like, ‘No, I’m going full out’. She was definitely in the mindset to push it and she really … [Read more...] about Vonn wins bronze medal in the final race of her career
