Why visit Munich
Munich is a place of unimaginable wonder and sublime culture. For centuries it has bewitched those who have traversed its scintillating landscapes and historical streets, and captured innumerable hearts with a mere postcard.
While its landscape of glistening lakes, snow-capped mountains, quaint countryside villages and Baroque skylines are extraordinary, the true magic lies in the culture.
For an authentic beer experience, follow the scent of hops to find the legendary Augustiner brewery, or don a pair of lederhosen and lose yourself in the electric revelry of Oktoberfest. Indulge in schweinshaxe and crisp pretzels for a taste of traditional Munich fare. Or witness a world class production at the National Theatre or spirited display of Bavarian music at the Hofbräuhaus.
Grandiose and sophisticated, yet enigmatic and welcoming, the city of Munich is buttoning down and ready to dazzle the world with a cultural extravaganza unlike anything it has ever seen.
