Munich

Where Germany becomes Mediterranean

The Bavarian capital has more to offer than Oktoberfest and nudists in the English Garden. This charming south German city-lovingly nicknamed "the most Northern Italian town"-can cheer up any kind of traveler. To start with, there is, of course, the beer. Throughout the city your nose will encounter the scent of malt and hops again and again. In the spring and summer, countless beer gardens offer cool shade and communal tables under the mandatory chestnut trees. In the winter, Christmas markets abound, selling anything from mulled wine to roasted almonds, handmade nutcrackers, Christmas ornaments, and what have you. You can even partake in the local version of curling on the Nymphenburg canal near the city castle-where Ludwig II was born. Peruse through some of Germany's finest museums, such as the Lenbachhaus with its famous Blue Rider collection, the Deutsches Museum chronicling Germany's technical achievements (mining, shipbuilding, beer-brewing, and so on), or the relatively new Pinakothek der Moderne. Enjoy the ubiquitous bike trails, street cafes, and boutiques. At night simply relish: there are two opera houses, several highly acclaimed theaters, and depending on your taste, the rambunctious beer halls or trendy nightclubs. Ah-and lest we forget-the Alps are just a hop, skip, and a jump away.

  • Ich persönlich verstehe nicht warum München immer nur mit Bier verbunden wird. München hat auch ganz andere Facetten!

  • München ist eine Stadt, die sich nicht so leicht mit anderen deutschen Städten wie Hamburg oder Berlin vergleichen lassen lässt. Da München auch die nördlichste Stadt Italiens genannt wird, vereinigt sie italienisches Flair mit alpenländischen Einflüssen, ist aber dennoch eine Stadt mit sehr viel bayerischem Flair. Ob Entspannung im Englischen Garten oder an der Isar, große Touristenströme am Marienplatz, wichtige und berühmte Museen oder einfach nur un die verschiedenen Facetten der Stadt zu genießen. München ist sehr vielfältig, bietet für jeden etwas und ist definitiv eine Reise wert.

  • Möchte eigentlich nie mehr in die Stadt zurück, aber wenn es sein müsste, dann sollte es München sein. War schon fast 10 x da und entdecke immer wieder neues und erfreue mich an dem schon Bekannten. München und dass Umland ist eine Reise wert. Sinnvoll ist es mindestens 4 Tage zu bleiben.
