Hello in Munich!

At approximately 1.35 million inhabitants, the capital city of the Free State of Bavaria is Germany's third largest city and known throughout the world for its beer, the October Fest - better known as "the Wies'n" - and white sausages with pretzels. The most southern metropolis within Germany is called the village of millions for good reason: in spite of its size, the city on the Isar is known for its hospitality and coziness, with many inviting corners and quarters where the atmosphere is originally Bavarian and rustic.

More than only Bavarian beergarden culture

The Frauenkirche is Munich's most widely visible landmark. The Marienplatz, the lively Viktualienmarkt, the heavenly Schloss Nymphenburg with its expansive park setting, and the football temple Allianz Arena in the north are a must-see for any visitor to Munich. And don't forget: the English Gardens. It is among the world's largest inner city gardens. Located directly along the Isar, it houses Munich's most famous beergarden at the Chinese Tower.

Museums and trade shows with drawing power

But culture is also a major focus in Munich: The world-famous Munich Philharmonic is at home here, just as the National Theater, the State Theater, and a host of museums of world renown, such as the Deutsche Museum, the Pinakothek, and the Bayerische National Museum.

As the home to Messe München, the trade show city of Riem is host to many international trade shows and congresses, therefore making Munich of pivotal importance for economic affairs.

In total, it is one of the best loved, most livable cities in Germany, with an extensive offering for any taste and an ideal springboard for daytrips to the Alps and to one of the many lakes in the region. And when will you discover Munich?
