Munich Attractions

While driving through the city of Munich you’ll enjoy its incredible beauty and regal feel. You’ll marvel in the number of museums, galleries, theaters and concert-halls that make this a great European cultural center. Munich attractions are for everyone, whether you’re interested in art and history, sports, or just wanting to take a stroll through beautiful parks.

Postcard Memories
The ever famous Victory Arch and Towers of Munich are two of the most popular Munich attractions, and though featured on most postcards, being there in person, will create an unforgettable memory of your trip.

The towers of Munich, also known as Frauenkirche, are 109 meters high, and were built in 1525. Its church is of great importance as it houses a crypt where dukes and bishops are buried.

Victory Gate has come to be a symbol of peace; Its inscription, placed at the bottom when it was rebuilt after World War II, reads: “Dedicated to Victory, destroyed by war, reminding of peace.”

Museums
A Munich attraction that is a must on everyone’s list is the Deutsches Museum. It’s of extreme importance as the artifacts you see mark amazing advances in the fields of science and technology. You will find exhibits in aerospace, astronomy, telecommunications and more. You can see the first Siemens Dynamo engine or the first automobile ever produced. It is a wonderful place for the entire family.

Churches
Of the many Munich attractions travelers come to see, Peterkirche is the oldest church in Munich and was built in 1180. It is also a favorite of locals given its magnificent Romanesque style and beauty. A popular tour includes the second chapel, where the skeleton of Saint Mundita can be seen. Though a bit eerie, it’s quite different as the skeleton itself is gilded in gold and covered with precious stones. If you venture to the viewing platform you’ll have the most incredible views of the city, and on a clear day you can see all the way to the Alps.

Palaces
One can’t visit a city like Munich without a stop at a palace or two –they are the best of Munich attractions. Residenz Palace, home to the Bavarian monarchs, is a must see Munich attraction. Every king that moved into the palace added another room, so over the centuries the palace became an array of architectural styles. In a tour of the place, you’ll be able to see the beautiful ballrooms, chapels, galleries, apartments and fountain courts. The rooms are filled with art and furnishings from different periods of history.

Nymphenburg Palace is another favorite Munich attraction, and a former Summer residence of the Bavarian monarchs. Its most popular feature is the “gallery of beauties” with an impressive banquet hall and former bedroom of King Ludwig II.

Among the many Munich attractions, don’t forget Munich’s extraordinary nightlife, with bars and nightclubs, or an evening at the opera, theater or perhaps the philharmonic. Munich is a multifaceted city with so much culture and history to take in you’ll need lots of time (or a few visits) to catch it all.
