Now the country’s second city after its capital Berlin, and the biggest city in southern Germany, Munich actually started life as a little-known market town on the salt road between Salzburg and Augsburg in the 12th century. You’d certainly never believe that today though, as it’s now the country’s cosmopolitan technology capital of commerce and industry.
Despite its modernity and energetic vibe, Munich has maintained its wonderfully traditional feel. It’s a city that effortlessly blends old with new, with Lederhosen (leather pants), Dirndls (country dresses), parks, beer gardens, and massive elegant halls. It’s also world-renowned of course for its annual beer festival, Oktoberfest, which brings in huge crowds of revellers from across Europe looking for a good time. And when it comes to evening entertainment, you’ll be spoilt for choice amongst the chic bars, German pubs and buzzing nightclubs. There’s also a fantastic range of places to enjoy a meal, even for the fussiest of eaters. You’ll find everything from rustic boutique restaurants to fast food and street markets to well-known chains and plenty besides.
But there’s a lot more to Munich than beer. In addition to its history-packed heart of the city, stunning parks and delicious German cuisine, there’s also Munich’s famous clock, art collection, luxurious palace, and the popular English Garden. During the Second World War, Munich wasn’t bombed as heavily as Berlin, meaning that a large amount of historical architecture and monuments remain to this day and can be seen throughout the area.
It’s easy to see why Munich’s popularity is growing fast. The center itself is small enough to easily walk around and holds a wealth of sights to keep the whole family entertained. Its
cleanliness, safety, and more relaxed pace of life give it a noticeably rustic feel, even against its contemporary backdrop. With its stylish boutiques and cafes, Alpine views, pretty river and great deal of parkland there’s certainly something for everyone.
