You might not suspect it, but one of Munich's most special corners is to be found at the heart of its Technical University (TUM, est. 1868). After strolling the pleasant, historic campus, head toward the School of Architecture and go up to the top floor. Here you'll find a café with a terrace affording one of the most spectacular possible panoramic views over the city. The café is also a great place for affordable meals, and sometimes you'll even find DJ sets and other music. Sure not like the universities of yore!
