Munich - world metropolis with traditions, culture and delightful cuisine

 

Munich is Germany’s third largest city (with 1.35 million people) and the capital city of Bavaria, located on the river Isar north of the Bavarian Alps.  Located in the south of Germany, Munich is just a few hours away from Austria, Switzerland and Italy.

Munich is often referred to as Weltstadt mit Herz, meaning “Cosmopolitan City with Heart” and is rated as one of the most livable cities in the world.

 

A signature event of the city is Oktoberfest, the world’s largest folk festival, which had its origin in 1810. While checking out Oktoberfest, make sure to try some authentic German meals, treats and locally brewed beer.

Munich, one of Germany’s most popular travel destinations has much to offer:

With its numerous orchestras, ensembles, opera houses and theatres, Munich is a very culturally active city. Whether you are interested in music, history, architecture or art; whether you enjoy strolling through parks, fancy attractions like a trip to the Bavaria film studios, guided tours or long for a visit to one of Munich's famous traditional beer gardens, you'll always find something exciting in this multi-faceted city.
