1.5 days in Munich unexpectedly

Good Morning,
Due to a flight cancellation we find ourselves in Munich on a Sunday after a 10 day central Europe trip. Our flight back home is tomorrow evening. I was thinking of doing some shopping today but just realized all stores are closed. This is our 3rd trip here so have seen all the top sights. Any suggestions for a low key relaxed day ? Also would love suggestions for a dinner (would prefer French or Asian food for a change)
Thanks!

Take a walk in the expansive Englishergarten. Take a train trip to nearby Bamburg, Salzburg, Garmish-P, Mittenwald, Nuremberg, etc. Take a train to a nearby lake/(see) town. Visit the Deutsches Museum if you like science (and it has AC). Visit a couple of the outstanding art museums, my favorite two being the Alte Pinakothek and Lenbachhaus.

Shopping and Asian food? Today is the last day of Tollwood Summer Festival.
It offers a craft market, concerts and other performances and about 50 food stalls with organic food and drinks from over 20 nations, including many vegetarian and vegan treats.
It’s in the southern part of Olympiapark and opens at 11 am. Free entry on festival ground. https://www.tollwood.de/en/markt-und-gastronomie/

There are several events in different parks in Munich:
Japan festival in English Garden - https://www.djg-muenchen.de/japanfest
Magdalenenfest in Hirschgarten – Hirschgarten includes also the largest beergarden in Munich. https://en.munich.foravisit.com/activities-leisure-recreation/green-area/bigger-parks/hirschgarten/
Festival of cultures in Westpark – Westpark is in my opinion the most beautiful park in Munich. https://en.munich.foravisit.com/activities-leisure-recreation/green-area/bigger-parks/westpark/

Or you spend the day on Starnberger See (may be better tomorrow morning, as many Munich residents will be there today). Take S-Bahn to Starnberg, go by boat to Tutzing, stroll along the lake.
