The golden tweet of Germany

Munich is one of the most popular destination in Europe and Germany. The city is the capital of the Bavaria state. Munich is world known for its beer and the famous Oktoberfest. Home to the BMW Welt and the FC Bayern, Munich is a city with something for everyone! More than that, Munich is an important centre for art, culture and international affairs. The city is clean, safe and has an efficient transport system. Being an open and joyful city, Munich is a leisure paradise with a splendid view over the alps. Munich is easily reached by train from Paris, Berlin and Zurich.

About Germany

When in Munich, wander around the town centre to see the unmistakable landmarks: Marienplatz, Frauenkirche, the Hofbrauhaus and the Rezidenz Palace. The beautiful Englischer Garten park shouldn’t be missed either, and make sure you see the Eisbach surfers in action there. Art fans are spoilt for choice - the best museums in town include the three Pinakothek art museums and the Bavarian National Museum.

Visit the most famous tavern in the world, the Hofbräuhaus beer hall. Every day it serves around 10,000 litres of beer. The Gothic Church of Our Lady is the definitive Munich landmark; the design is fascinating as are the views from the top of the towers. The Renaissance Hofgarten Palace Garden offers great views of the Theatinerkirche church. Wander through the 125 arches that make up the arcaded walkways and check out the timetable for upcoming concerts and festivals

Munich is the best place to be to have a taste of the Bavarian cuisine, which is tasty and particularly filling. Drop in a Gaststatten (restaurant), and order a local speciality such as Weisswurst, a boiled white veal sausage usually served with a pretzel or bread and sweet mustard or try Leberkase, a spicy meatloaf served in very thick slices. Marzipan is a must in Munich, as is the Bavarian traditional biscuit Lebkuchen, and make sure you stock up on Stollen for the festive period. Beer is best drank in a garden for full flavour, and preferably alongside a knuckle of pork and some sauerkraut, a cabbage dish.

Exclusive boutiques line the streets of Maximilianstrasse and Theatinerstrasse; Head to the department stores and international chains of Neuhauserstrasse and Kaufingerstrasse for Lederhosen, woodcarvings and beer steins for grateful friends.

    train travel | Richard h. | 2015/02/23
    "Taking the train between cities in Europe is a very civilised way to get about. While its not necessarily cheaper than flying, it is far more relaxed. The great part is that you are travelling from the centre of one city to the centre of the next and thus don't require transfers to and from airports. Pre-booking your seat makes a lot of sense for a little bit extra. "
