Munich is Germany's second most visited city. It is the capital of Bavaria and lies just over an hour from the Bavarian Alps. Here you can experience both the big city atmosphere and rural charm and this combination has helped it achieve worldwide notoriety.

Munich Oktoberfest

Visiting Oktoberfest?

Munich has become best known for the Oktoberfest, the Hofbräuhaus, the Olympic Park and the Fasching festival. However, Munich also has an international reputation as a metropolis for art and culture and its many museums display impressive collections. The Munich music scene ranges from classical to jazz and pop.

Most of Munich’s main attractions are conveniently located near the centre of the city. 

It is a vibrant city with lots to do and see that will appeal to all ages and a good base for exploring more of Bavaria. You can be as busy or not as you like.

Munich is the city most Germans want to live in for its quality of life and is consistently voted Monocle magazines No 1 most liveable city.

Munich is twinned with Edinburgh, Verona, Bordeaux, Sapporo, Cincinnati, Kiev and Harare.

Munich is a candidate city for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games and if successful will be the first city to host the Summer Games (1972) and the Winter Games.
