The area and getting around
Munich is the capital of the state of Bavaria and has a very distinct personality. Sitting atop gentle plains to the north of the Alps, the heart of Munich is at Marienplatz square, from which four royal avenues crisscross urban areas. A large metropolitan region encompasses the area where visitors usually focus on, the grounds nearby Old Town. Isar River, tributary to the legendary Danube, refreshes the urban landscape and even allows for water sports (like river surfing!). The city portrays a mixture of historic and modern architecture, new and medieval landmarks resting shoulder to shoulder. Munich is the perfect base for easy access to other relatively close German hotspots, such a Nuremberg and Stuttgart.A bunch of experiences with traditional events and interesting spots
Many identify Munich with its most famous festival: Oktoberfest. In truth, it is simply one of the many drinking and dining events held in the city throughout the year. True enough, however, Oktoberfest is the largest beer festival in the world, attracting a crowd of over 6 million from the end of September through early October. Speaking of superb gastronomy, Viktualienmarkt is the most popular market for fresh food and delicatessen, and an ideal location to try a local specialty: the Weißwurst or “white sausage”. It is traditionally eaten only before noon, served with sweet mustard and pretzels. But that is not all. Munich is fantastic in terms of the learning experiences visitors have access to. Cultural cathedrals like the Deutsche Museum or Alte Pinakothek can be appreciated by all ages, as well as a near infinite number of Gothic churches and palaces.
Travellers and activities
In addition to the large pedestrian walkways available for hiking lovers, visitors in good shape may choose to explore any number of public parks, the largest of which is Englischer Garten. With 370 hectares of lawns, groves, waterways and even a lake (and a naturist area!) your choices are endless when choosing a route. Some call it the “green lung” of Munich. Bike, Segway and E-scooter tours can be booked daily to put a spin on traditional sightseeing. And who says that you cannot enjoy water sports in one of most continental cities in Europe? Travellers may enjoy river surfing by riding the legendary Eisbach wave, day and night and throughout the year.Munich for culture enthusiasts
Urban adventurers shall never cease to be amazed by the place. Munich’s Kunstareal is a cluster of museums full of masterpieces. The Deutsche Museum is located on an island in the river Isar and is the largest and one of the oldest science museums in the world. Important art galleries like the Alte Pinakothek feature works by art giants such as Peter Paul Rubens, Albrecht Dürer, Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt, to name a few. The Bavarian State Orchestra and Bavarian State Opera are of international reputation. Baroque churches embellish every block. In other words, beauty and cultural heights in abundance.
The city is nicknamed “secret capital” in reference to its significant role in German economy, politics and culture.
Top 5 spots in Munich
This public square marks the very centre of the city. It is a large open space crowned by the Marian column from which it takes its name. On its sides, the structures of the Old and New Town Halls stand proudly with pinnacles, arches and statues of the first Bavarian kings. Where Marienplatz now stands there used to be a medieval fortification, of which nowadays nothing but three gates remain. One of these gates (named Karlstor) leads to another grand square by the Palace of Justice.2. Old St. Peter’s Church
The oldest church in Munich, predating even the city’s official foundation in 1158. It was destroyed by a fire in the 12th century and rebuilt with the inclusion of Gothic elements. Now it has become a mixture of Renaissance and Baroque art. From the top of its highest tower, after climbing its 299 steps, travellers are rewarded with breathtaking views of the surrounding region and city landmarks. Even the Alps may be seen on a clear day!3. The glorious Residenz Palace
Construction began in 1385 on the edge of Munich’s Old Town. It is nothing less than Germany’s largest urban palace, home to the National Treasury and a splendid Rococo theatre. Many visits are required in order to appreciate the structure in all its glory. The palace is comprised of 130 rooms and an Italian Renaissance courtyard, a lavish banquet hall and many, many secrets. Want to know about them?4. The famous Frauenkirche
Perhaps the best-known building in the city and the site of a magnificent cathedral. Built in the 15th century, features a pair of towers with oval domes and constitutes an indisputable Munich landmark. In fact, it is so highly recognized as a symbol of the city that no other new building is permitted to exceed its 109-metre height. The church has a notoriously humble design, few windows and unadorned walls which inspire awe in a non pretentious manner.5. Fun at the Krone Circus
One of the largest circuses in Europe and one of very few to occupy a building of its own. It was founded in 1905 by Carl Krone, who made a reality of the maxim “entrepreneur spirit, love of animals and absolute seriousness”. Five thousand people may attend a show simultaneously, seated under the most modern and expensive circus tent in the world. Awake your inner child and enjoy the show!
