Whether you like history, culture, churches, music, nightlife or all of the above, Munich is an amazing city to visit. As the capital of Bavaria and the third largest German city, Munich has a cosmopolitan atmosphere and is sometimes referred to as Germany’s “secret capital."
Many of the images typically associated with Germany are quintessentially Bavarian: lederhosen, oom-pah bands, huge steins of frothy beer, alpine views, and, of course, the most famous of Bavaria’s many annual festivals, Oktoberfest. However, there is much more to the city than this quaint Bavarian charm. Located in the most Catholic area of Germany, Munich is known for its many Catholic churches, abbeys, and other religious landmarks. In fact, Munich is named for a Benedictine abbey founded in the 9th century. The city is home to outstanding museums like the Alte Pinakothek and Neue Pinakothek, German Museum, and Bavarian National Museum. Several TV stations and film studios and hundreds of book and newspaper publishers are based in Munich. As the former residence of the Bavarian kings, it boasts a downtown palace full of dazzling treasures and priceless artworks, in addition to a magnificent country palace, viewed by many as one of the most beautiful palaces in Europe. On any given night, Munich residents and visitors have a rich palette of operas, plays, and musicals to choose from. All of this lies within an easy drive of stunning Alpine scenery, picture-book villages, and the fairy-tale castle Neuschwanstein. Come experience all this for yourself!
