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.

    Munich Review

    Beautiful city. Must see - English Garden and Deutsches Museum Transport - Day pass is value for money. Just be sure to identify the circles within which you will be travelling Food: Place around Hauptbahnhof caters to all types of cuisine at affordable rates. Entertainment options are plenty and cater to all tastes. Safety: Stay clear of drunkards and junkies at night.

    Insider Tip:Do visit the Dachau concentration camp. It is a very emotionally powerful experience.

    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

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.
