Munich Overview

Munich is an amazing destination, with a mix of historic buildings, green parks and impressive modern architecture. It has been ranked as one of the best destinations among historic places, and rightfully so. Munich has given the world amazing music composers, writers and artists and with such history, its collection of theaters, galleries and concert halls are among the most impressive. Munich is also known for its Bavarian culinary delights and the place of the most famous beer worldwide. If you are seeking the highest level of luxury or the trendiest in fashion at affordable prizes, Munich is the place for you.

It’s always a great time to visit Munich; summers are warm yet not too hot and the fact that it rains little during the winter makes for a delightful season.

Munich is the capital of Bavaria, Germany and it sits on the Isar River, North of the Bavarian Alps. Rebuilt in 1945, Munich started to become a modernized city. However, you can still appreciate the old grandeur of the city by visiting beautiful palaces and churches or by touring the four grand avenues that were built in the 19th Century that connect Munich to most of the city’s suburbs. These avenues are lined with examples of amazing architecture and numerous green areas. One of the most beautiful parks to visit is Englischer Garten, larger than Central park of New York City. You’ll certainly recognize Frauenkirche, the Towers of Munich, built in 1525, or the Victory Arch, a symbol of peace, and featured in most postcards.

Munich is not only home to magnificent icons of history, its home to very interesting museums like the Deutsches Museum, the oldest and largest science museum in the world, where you can see artifacts that have marked advances in the fields of science and technology.

In Munich you will find incredible opportunities to shop. The boutiques that line Maximilianstrasse boast the epitome of luxury, with designer names like Gucci and Armani to name a few; but if you are looking for fashion, jewelry or vintage clothing at more affordable prizes, Munich is the place. But other than great fashion at great prizes, Munich is the place to shop for traditional Bavarian gifts like Beer mugs, wood carvings, pewter wares and specialty foods. Literature and music lovers will delight in the selection of shops all throughout the city.

And for those who are not interested in shopping, but would rather enjoy sports, a visit to Munich’s Olympic park, site to the 1972 Olympic Games, will be an enjoyable experience; or visit Allianz Arena, a futuristic football stadium, home to two popular teams.

Bavarian cuisine is famous for its specialty sausages and beer. Munich’s beer gardens are at the center of Bavarian tradition and a must for every visitor, whether to drink beer or enjoy a day of live music and folk dancing in magnificent settings.

Munich is a diverse city, a place for every one of every age, and a destination you won’t soon forget.
