Munich
Travel Guide

The capital of Bavaria is a modern city packed with pleasant gardens, innovative museums, historic sites and beer halls.

Munich is famously among the world’s most liveable cities. Millions of travellers flock to the capital each year, drawn by its blend of modern and traditional architecture, excellent beer gardens and location next to the Bavarian Alps.

The city centre is home to a broad range of architectural designs. Capture photos of the exceptional façade of St. Peter’s Church (Peterskirche), which is of baroque and gothic design. See the German late-baroque Asam Church (Asamkirche). Many new buildings are replicas of predecessors destroyed in World War II. Discover the modern side of Munich at the Olympic Tower and the Pinakothek der Moderne art museum.

The Bavarian capital has a strong beer culture and is home to some of the best-known German brews as well as the world’s largest and most famous beer festival, Oktoberfest. Join revellers from across the globe who come to try Munich’s “Big Six” breweries, such as the royal-founded Hofbräuhaus and the acclaimed Löwenbräu. Revive local traditions that span centuries as you sip beer in the shade of a chestnut tree at one of the city’s beer gardens.

Many multinational corporations call Munich home, including BMW. Learn about the history, present and future of the German car manufacturer at BMW World. Peruse models of some of the very first cars and motorbikes the company produced.

Munich has more to offer than fast cars and beer. Take a tranquil stroll through the charming English Garden, which is an oasis of calm near the city centre. Walk along the banks of the Isar River past fields and woodland areas.

Get on a sightseeing bus from the main railway station to gain a better understanding of the city’s history and culture. You can also get around by renting a bike and riding along bike paths and through parks. The modern and efficient metro system provides easy access to every corner of the city. Discover Bavaria’s many charms, from beer and cars, to traditional architecture and tranquil gardens.
