Munich

Munich is a trendsetter city. It gave the world pale lager beers, Helles and Pilsner, beer halls and gardens, and of course the world-famous Oktoberfest. Sipping on a stein, munching on a hearty bierwurst and listening to some oompah music – you’re in Munich; you just have to do it. Walk it all off visiting Marienplatz where the faux Middle Ages Rathaus stands over the city. Aim to be there at 11am to see the glockenspiel clock re-enact two stories from the 16th century. The Frauenkirche is a real piece of medieval architecture that you can’t miss and you can easily spend an hour wandering through Viktualienmarkt (the Victual Market).



SOME THINGS TO SEE AND DO IN MUNICH



Marienplatz 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. 

Oktoberfest 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.

Hofbrauhaus HOFBRÄUHAUS

Quintessentially Bavarian. The Hofbräuhaus is 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.

Dachau DACHAU

The first concentration camp established by the Nazis in 1933 and liberated in 1945, it’s now a memorial site and museum.          
Oompah Music 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 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 along with interactive displays and easy to read historical information. If you do happen to like cars then this place will blow your mind.
