A Guide to Munich

Europe > Germany > Munich

The Capital of Bavaria

Located in southern Germany, Munich is set to the north of the Bavarian Alps on the River Isar and is Germany’s third largest city.
Unlike the metropolitan cities of Berlin and Frankfurt, Munich has held on to its traditions in an increasingly modern world.  It is renowned for its art, architecture, being the capital of Bavaria and of course, most importantly, as the beer capital of Europe.
Probably its most famous event is Oktoberfest which conjures images of red faced men in lederhosen downing countless steins of beer and eating sausages to the sound of oompah music. 
Munich is definitely a city that has something to offer everyone be it culture, hi-tech, parks and greenery, night-life, architecture, beer gardens, shopping or the skiing and sailing close by.
Of course, to make the most of your time here, it has the added benefit of being close to Austria and Italy, and such destinations as Prague and Budapest, making it a marvellous point from which to explore Central Europe.  More info
