Home to Oktoberfest, Munich is set in the heart of Bavaria, and welcomes visitors with open arms. This German city has restored a lot of its classical architecture which was destroyed during WWII, giving it an 18th century look with 21st century amenities. History and culture play a large role in the city, which hosts museums, theatres, heritage sites and art galleries to rival those elsewhere in Central Europe.
Munich has a district set aside for its museums, the most notable of which are the BMW Museum and the Deutsche Museum, the largest museum dedicated to technology in the world. In terms of buildings, Schloss Nymphenburg is a remarkable Baroque palace, while the Residenz is an old castle which now houses the Bavarian government. The Munich Zoo is a big draw for families since it is large and the animals live in natural-looking habitats.
Although a poignant and somber reminder of the atrocities of WWII, Dacau and its monument to the victims of the Holocaust are close by to Munich. Car rental in Munich is a good way to get here. A hire car also allows visitors to drive to Andechs Mountain, where an old converted monastery serves great German beer, and to Fussen, home of the fairytale-like Neuschwanstein Castle.
Best time to visit
October is when Munich is at its liveliest due to Oktoberfest, the huge beer festival which is over a century old. The winter months are good times to visit for winter sports enthusiasts, with the ski season running from mid-November until Easter, and the city puts on many musical performances by world-renowned orchestras in the run up to Christmas.
