Why Go

As the capital of Bavaria, Munich is prosperous and orderly but laidback and welcoming. Famous for its annual Oktoberfest (which actually starts in September) and year-round beer gardens such as the Hofbräuhaus am Platzl and Augustiner-Keller, Munich has a reputation as Germany's liveliest city. Often named one of the most livable cities in the world, Munich boasts many family-friendly parks, romantic cobblestone streets and the famed platz, city squares filled with historical architecture and café culture. The center of Munich is the Marienplatz and its New Town Hall, housing the historic Rathaus-Glockenspiel story-telling clock. Other popular attractions are the Deutsches Museum, a massive technical museum with hands-on exhibits great for ... Read more
kids, and the baroque Nymphenburg Palace. The city center is well-stocked with budget hostels and luxurious hotels. Be sure to enjoy authentic Bavarian cuisine, including sausages and Weissbier (wheat beer).

Old school Germany with amazing architecture. Really great food, awesome beer halls, super friendly folks. Went on a backpacking trip and can see why so many of my friends who have visited ended up moving their. Great mix of a big city and local feel.

This city is unbelievable. While everyone thinks you have to come for beer fest, there are plenty of festivals in the area and surrounding cities all the time! Make sure to stop in the Hofbrauhaus for a liter or two!

Munich has everything! Make sure to check out surrounding areas as well in Bavaria. I would definitely recommend the schnitzel shop by Marienplatz. Best food I had while there and it is affordable and fast. This beautiful city is covered in history and culture and a must-see for travelers and those of German heritage.

Munich is a charming city in the heart of Bavaria! I've been twice for Oktoberfest, alas ten years apart, but had an amazing time on both trips! Besides Oktoberfest, be sure to stroll though the English Garden, watch the surfers, and enjoy a drink in one of the many beer gardens in town.

Munich is an incredible city - museums, cathedrals, and the largest and most impressive city park in all of Germany - and a bewildering selection of local beers. Be sure to visit the Hofbrauhaus - during Oktoberfest if you can - if only to be able to say you've done it.

I love Munich and the local people! You can eat delicious Weißwurst with a "Breze" and a glass of Weißbier almost everywhere.
When I was there, the weather was not that good, so I had to stay most of the time inside some Wirtshaus ;)

Bavaria's largest city is a world class destination. I don't drink alcohol but there's still lots to see & do. Main attractions include the Neues Rathaus, BMW complex, Deutsches Museum, & Olympiapark.

We took a bit of time during our layover to check out Munich. We enjoyed walking through the Frauenkirche, it made for a nice respite from Munich's bitterly cold winter winds.
