This town is well-known for its festival (Oktoberfest) which brings the massive drunk crowds. But there are lots of fantastic attractions here in Munich such as gardens, parks, museums, stunning art collections, high-class restaurants, and cafes.
Explore cultural highlights, hidden gems, beautiful landscapes and fantastic sights to make your sightseeing and guided private tours of Munich memorable.
To bring the amount in context, take the population of London, then add it to an already populated district for about two weeks during the month of September.
Eight million litres of beer are supplied, and they build around 108 square hectares of beer tents.
This is the mother of all beer festivals, and it inspired imitations around the world - even in places as far away as California!
If this sounds like your cup of tea with the taste of beer, then make sure to book tour accommodation in advance because it is the busiest season!
Also, the best food to eat when you are drunk during the festival, are pancakes - potato pancakes. They are really filling and reasonably healthy !!
Calling all art lovers. If you appreciate one or two Impressionists, then you will love what you will find in the three Pinakothek.
The Pinakothek der Moderne is a definite hit with backpackers and offers one of the best Dali and Picasso collections in Europe, after Paris and Cardiff.
The Moderne is also a pretty impressive architectural community in itself with an unforgettable eerie dark glass and concrete Combo.
Over at the Neue Pinakothek prepare yourselves for a great collection from the masters of the nineteenth century and finally in the Alte Pinakothek, to expect only the best of German art of the various periods.
A stone's throw away from the square is a hidden treasure called Café Glockenspiel - on the top floor of the Marienplatz number 28 you have to look a little to the elevator to find at the back door, but worth seeking out, just for the Super treats on the menu and the views of the St. Peter's Church, just across the street from this rooftop restaurant.
It depends on your interests and what you fancy doing while there in Munich .Winter is an excellent time as the locals get their city back, no queues no hustle and bustle of tourists, and although chilly it is not freezing, and you can enjoy the Christmas markets and St. Wenselous square, try to go May or September as the days are lovely and sunny with a small chance of rain. Your tour operator will keep you updated with the best time to go.
Munich is an excellent Budget holiday especially in the winter months as long as you book well in advance, you can enjoy the Christmas markets at a fraction of the price. The local restaurants are also very reasonably priced. The best way to travel is by tram and pay for a 3 or 5-day pass as it works out a lot cheaper. Beer and wine are a great price so have a few! Pre-book tours in advance and save yourself money!
The only downside of Germany is the pickpockets, but as like many large cities it is the same everywhere, keep all valuables including your passports in your hotel safe and only take enough cash or a bank card with you for the day. Try to steer clear of the park around the train station as it is deemed unsafe in the evenings even with the improved security. Only change your money in legitimate change offices, prebook any tours before you go and save money
Summertime is the best time to visit, from Spring until Autumn is also great options, particularly the months of May and September when there is little rainfall, and the temperatures are agreeable. Christmas time is also a fabulous time to visit anywhere in Germany with the many Christmas markets and the smell of the food and mulled wine as you walk along the streets in the snow, is just beautiful. Regardless when you visit you will have an amazing holiday
