Marvel in Munich

Munich is Bavaria’s people pleaser, it really has and excels in everything, from business to art with enough time for sport there is no wonder why Munich is able to keep even the most avid adventurers occupied. Being the capital city of Bavaria, which borders the equally astounding Austria, the Munich metropolitan offers a diverse range of culture, history and shopping links which will keep you busy as well as giving you an insight into this great city.

Munich holidays provide a German joviality that typifies the culture of Bavaria; passion, power and beauty are all words you could use to describe the magnificent Munich, but an eminence of togetherness exudes from the capital during classic festivals such as Oktoberfest, making this destination a must-visit during anyone’s excursion to Germany.

Munch in Munchen

If you’re craving the bratwurst then head on over to Nurnberger Bratwurst Glockl Am Dom, one of Munich’s most popular beer taverns which happens to be dedicated to the trademark finger-size sausages. Holidays in Munich wouldn’t be complete without dabbling into sausage eating and the trademark dish really absorbs you into Bavarian culture.

The heart of the city centre is the best place to stay; this gives you a good standpoint to visit all of the top attractions with regular trams and subways running throughout the city. However, if you’d rather your bed be away from the hustle and bustle of the centre, then the East Munich outskirts provide some reasonably priced and well-situated accommodation. For any car lover there’s the famous BMW museum where you can follow the creation process, the body and paint-shop really giving an insight into the passion each of these fabulous vehicles are made with, or if more of a Benz-fan, head on over to Stuttgart for the Mercedes-Benz museum.

Holidays to Munich are often branded as visits to the city of beer, although there is a rich artistic propensity inherent within the city’s many museums such as The Pinakothek, where much of the city’s famous artwork resides. For a contrast, why not then head over to the Deutsches Museum, the world’s largest museum of science and technology, for an informative deluge into one of the many worlds of Munich.

If football’s your game, or even modern architecture for that matter, then head to the Allianz Arena where you’ll find the world’s first full colour-changing exterior football stadium, even if you’re not a football fan, the arena is something everyone should see at least once, serving as the perfect photo-piece for your Munich holidays. Situated on the North Munich outskirts, visiting the world-famous arena will ensure you delve into every corner of this illustrious city.
