City Guide Munich, Germany

Visiting Munich

Nobody likes to harp on about the stereotypes attached to a city when describing it, but it’s hard not to when talking about Munich. The Bavarian capital is birthplace of the beer hall where men and women decked in lederhosen line larger than life beers in front of thirsty tourists to the sound of traditional German ‘oompah’ bands. But there is a lot more to the city than that. Munich gets increasingly cosmopolitan every year and it has one of the best selections of museums in Germany. This is why it now rivals Berlin as the most popular city in Germany with travellers.

    I went to Munich with 4 friends and we all had a great time! We really enjoyed the English garden, definetely reccomend going in the lazy (fast) river. We also enjoyed the sandemans walking tour and the beer gardens.

    Munich, the home of the beer!

    Very nice city, good weather, can be very hot depending on the time of year you visit. We visited the Allianz arena and also the german beer halls tour in the evening. We nalso visited Marinplatz, the glockinspeil and climbed to the top of the tower. Long walk up the steps but the view is worth it. Metro really easy to use. We only had a short stop so couldn't visit everything. Would definitely come again.

    Best city throughout my travel

    I like traveling by walking mostly, and I thought this is the best place to do this. Not a classic choice as a traveler but it is really really beautiful

    The most boring city

    Almost nothing special to see in this city. The most boring city I ever been in Europe. Even though there are two swan castle which are very famous nearby, it just not worth to pay a penny to get inside to have two silly and short guided tours.

    Munich, I needed more time!

    Great city, lots of culture, totally different traditions than northern Germany. Huge city, need lots of time for exploring. City is most expensive in Germany.

    Insider Tip:Don't try weisse bier unless you like bananas.

Germany: Itinerary

Munich epitomises everything about Germany – huge jugs of beer can be got in beer halls which can be found all over the city while frankfurter sausages are also freely available. But there is more to the Bavarian capital than sausages and beer and explore it and you will discover a whole lot more.
