A cosmopolitan city with a heart. Munich is a sophisticated city with a baroque spirit steeped in Bavarian tradition.

Although it has been largely rebuilt since WWII, Munich still has a sense of Old World charm. The city has seen its share of prosperity. You can observe a mix of folklore and age-old traditions. But these exist side by side with luxury cars, designer shops, modern restaurants, and high-powered industry. Don't miss Marienplatz, the square in the heart of the city. Munich's cultural scene is a leader in Germany. It has impressive museums and galleries housing world-class art. There's also a buzzing music scene. The stunning architecture appears mostly as it did in the late 1800s. One of our favorite day trips from Munich is the stunning Neuschwanstein Castle.

Many people associate Munich with the world-famous Oktoberfest. If you have the chance to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime party, you should. For those looking for an authentic German or Bavarian atmosphere, Munich will provide just that. Munich is the capital of Bavaria, the region of Germany foreigners tend to associate with German traditions. This is the land of lederhosen, oompah music, beer halls, and bratwurst. Of course you can't visit Munich without sampling the beer. Brewing is the tradition taken most seriously here and you will taste why!

What we love about Munich


Trip Planner

Munich is one of my favourite German cities. I love how compact, safe and clean the Old Town is, and that there is always something to see and do in the city in general. My favourite part of all, of course, are the many biergartens, where one can enjoy the golden brew under leafy trees. Don't skip the Viktualienmarkt and sampling the many different types of food it has to offer (including horse meat, for those who feel more adventurous!)


Team Leader for Central Europe & Baltic Region

Before arriving in the Bavarian capital, keep in mind that Munich is really spread out, so make sure you give the city the time it deserves. Munich is of course best known for Oktoberfest, but it's definitely worth visiting any time of year. I particularly like the Marienplatz area, with its characteristic architecture.

I LOVE the English Garden. It's just such an amazing place to walk, swim, or simply chill with friends. I was lucky enough to visit the park on an insanely sunny day, which of course added a lot to the experience, but either way, the English Garden is still the best!

Frequently Asked Questions about travel to Munich

When's the best time to visit Munich?
Munich is a lively place year-round, but is especially so during the latter half of September, and beginning of October, when the city hosts Oktoberfest (which draw huge crowds and cause hotel rooms to fill up far in advance. The Christmas markets held in December have a warm atmosphere, while the English Garden, the city's main park, is wonderful anytime from April to October.
How long should I spend in Munich?
As the capital of Bavaria, Munich has much to offer. We recommend at least 3 nights, to familiarize yourself with the city, see its main sights (including those beyond the center), taste traditional Bavarian cuisine in a traditional beer hall or garden, and visit the palaces, castles, preserved medieval towns, and Alps in the area.
What should I know if I want to visit for Oktoberfest?
With over six million revelers, and several beer pipelines, Oktoberfest is a party like no other. Entrance is free, but everything from accommodations to seats in the massive beer tents sell out far in advance, so we recommend making arrangements to visit as soon as possible. If booked sufficiently far ahead of time, we're happy to provide a tour of Oktoberfest, complete with spots and food in one of the main beer tents.
How can I get around Munich?
While sizable, many of Munich's attractions are within walking distance of each other. For those more distant, such as BMW World or the Olympic Stadium, you can enjoy the city's extensive public transportation, including the S-Bahn (light rail) and U-Bahn (subways). Of the city's zones, the central M Zone covers most of what you would want to see. One ticket is good for everything, and can be purchased from blue machines at many bus and streetcar stations, and all S- and U-Bahn stations. A single ticket is 3.30 EUR and a day ticket is 7.80 EUR.
Can I pay by card in Munich?
While Germany isn't the cash-only economy it used to be, it's still a very good idea to have cash on hand, especially if you're eating out. Avoid using the blue-and-yellow Euronet ATMs, and if an ATM asks if you want to be charged in Euros or your own currency, select Euros to avoid paying a useless fee. We recommend asking accommodations staff for recommended places to exchange money.
Does Munich have options for people with dietary restrictions?
Munich may be famed for beer and sausage, but there is no shortage of alternatives, whether vegetarian/vegan, raw, gluten-free, or kosher, even at ordinary cafes and restaurants. We're happy to recommend places for you, such as Max Pett and Gratitude.
Is Munich safe?
Even in a country as safe as Germany, Bavaria stands out, with the lowest crime rate of any of the country's states. Considered one of Europe's safest cities, Munich is no exception, but as with any big city, watch your possessions when you're in a crowded place.
