Munich is the capital of the German state of Bavaria. It is Germany's 3rd largest city (after Berlin and Hamburg) and is home to around 1.4 million people.
Munich is most famous for it's Oktoberfest, a festival that starts in mid September every year and runs to October: a huge hit with tourists as well as locals.
Munich has plenty to offer all year round thanks to it's location on the Isar river and it's beautiful historic centre featuring the city's iconic town hall and St. Lukas Cathedral. Munich is also a great shopping destination - start at the Kaufingerstrasse and, at Christmas time, don't miss the amazing Christmas markets in and around the city center.
During summer, Munich is very much an outdoor city. The Olympiapark and 'English Gardens' offer plenty opporunity to hang out in the sun and cool off with some local beer at a beer garden. Munich also features some amazing museums and art galleries - don't miss out on Bavarian painter Franz Marc exhibits or the Munich Egyptology museum apart from the city's royal places and wide selection of museums. As home to car maker BMW, you can't miss the brand's museum either!
If you need some nature, why not head out of the city to the south to the Starnbergersee or Woerthsee lakes to go for a swim? Munich is a great destination for you to enjoy!
