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.

    Beer halls

    Rained the whole time I was there so the appearance wasn;t that flattering. Beer halls were packed with a fun atmosphere. Expensive, though

    Insider Tip:Fantastic science museum at the Deutsches museum. Good car museums nearby

    Munich is one of the most interesting German cities. There you can find more charming places to go sightseeing and old buildings that weren't destroyed during the WWII, at the same time you can also find new and trendy areas and neighbours. If you go during summer, the city gets a whole different look, more cheerful and pleasant. If you like practising nudism, you can find a nice area in the Englischer Garten.

    Meandering through Munich (literally!!!)

    Getting to Munich is so straight forward thanks to the centrally located bus and train terminals. The city is packed full of culture, vibrancy and history which made it difficult for us to see all there is to see in a few days. The Germans have a great outlook on life with great eateries, beer gardens galore what more could you need.

    Insider Tip:If the weather is good grab your trunks and head to the English Garden and take a dip in the artificial river and follow it up with a wander through this great park. A great option if your on a budget as it costs nothing.

    Bavarian City!

    When you think of the German stereotype with lederhosen, dirndls, pretzels, and schnitzels München is the city that offers it all. It has an older culture than other cities such as Berlin and Köln and is very beautiful.

    Insider Tip:Make sure you go to the Hofbräuhaus München while you are in the city! =) It is a very old bier house where you can rally with the locals and travelers.

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.
