Munich city trip: World metropolis with a cozy flair
Vacation in Munich
Bavaria’s capital city has a reputation as one of the most livable cities in the world. Munich isn’t just famous as an economic hub; this highly livable city is also known for its hospitality, its extensive parks, and its pleasant blend of down-to-earth tradition and high society flair.
From attraction to attraction in Munich’s city center
A stroll through the city center connects the most important historic attractions in Munich, allowing the attentive visitor to discover a splendid world of architectural diversity. The Church of our Lady, known as the Frauenkirche to the city’s resident, towers above the city as an unmistakable landmark. Just a few steps away, visitors can see the Marienplatz, one of the most beautiful squares in the world, which is flanked by the Old and New Town Halls and the famous Glockenspiel. Guests can also continue to the gothic parish church St. Peter and the Asamkirche, designed in a Rococo style. Munich shows off its modern side in the Olympic Tower, Olympic Park, BMW World, and futuristic Allianz Arena.
In the northeastern section of Munich, on the shores of the Isar, the English Gardens function as the green lung of the city. This giant park complex is one of the largest in the world, at 375 hectares in size. Don’t forget to visit Nymphenburg Castle, which towers majestically above its castle grounds in the west of Munich.
Important museums of Munich
Art lovers will spend hours enjoying works by European masters from the 14th to the 19th centuries in the Alte and Neue Pinakothek. A tour of the city’s art museums ends at the Pinakothek der Moderne, which is dedicated to exhibits and collections of modern art from the 20th and 21st centuries. The Deutsche Museum presents the most extensive exhibit of natural science and technology in the world. Around 28,000 objects are available for viewing and hands-on learning. Munich’s importance as a center of automotive production is celebrated at BMW World, which gives visitors a glimpse of the history, present, and future of German engineering.
Tradition and camaraderie at Munich’s Oktoberfest
Millions of visitors from every corner of the globe travel to the Oktoberfest in Munich each year. Out on the Wies’n, everything revolves around the beer produced by the six most famous major breweries in Munich. These include the Hofbräuhaus, which was founded in 1589 by Wilhelm V. – Duke of Bavaria – and world-famous Löwenbräu. A passion for beer is simply part of life in Munich, and is celebrated all year long. Join in at one of the Biergartens, and drink a Mass (a full liter of beer!) with the locals.
