To help narrow down your options if you only have a limited time available, at House of Travel we have put together some of our favourite attractions or visitor spots so you don't miss out on anything. Marienplatz – The heart of Munich since its foundation in 1158, it is here you will find the famous Glockenspiel which goes off every day at 11am, 12pm and 5pm and is free to view. Oktoberfest – Originally a celebration of Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria’s wedding to Princess Therese of Saxe- Hildburghausen in October 1810. Today it is the largest beer drinking festival in the world. Don’t let the name fool you, it actually takes place from mid September and ends in October. Booking early is essential as accommodation is always at a premium. Hofbräuhaus – Quintessentially Bavarian. The Hofbräuhausvis a historic beer hall selling traditional food and fantastic beer. The hall is made up of long wooden tables and benches. Nearly always you’ll need to share a table with strangers, but don’t worry, after your second stein we bet you’ll all be the best of friends. Frauenkirche – The most well known and largest cathedral in Munich. Its two towers can be seen throughout the city. Oompah music – Associated with Volkstümliche Musik, a form of popular German music, listening to an Oompah band is a “must do” experience when in Munich. BMW museum – This is a great Museum and you don’t even have to like cars to enjoy it! The interior design and architecture of the museum itself is extraordinary and the interactive displays and easy to read historical information will keep you interested right to the end. If you do happen to like cars then this place will blow your mind. Kaufingerstrasse and NeuhauserStrasse – It’s Munich’s busiest shopping street and one of the oldest streets in the city. Deutsches Museum – The largest Museum of Technology and Natural Sciences in the world. The Museum features 13 acres of exhibitions and is a must see.
