Munich receives visitors year round, so when you go depends largely on what you’d like to do. Winter has the charm of the renowned Christmas market, although after your time outdoors you’ll want to thaw out in ... Read more
the city’s many celebrated museums and theaters. In the spring, Fasching, the German Mardi Gras, brings the city back outside, this time to ever-so-slightly better temperatures averaging 45F (7C). Summer and fall are best for good weather and beer. Drinking in outdoor beer gardens is a quintessential Bavarian experience, and the Oktoberfest provides visitors the chance to take part in a two-centuries-old tradition.

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.
