Munich is the capital of Bavaria and full of fantastic attractions just waiting to be discovered, from museums, and galleries to beautiful churches. In the summer, visitors enjoy heading into the mountains for hiking and climbing adventures. In the winter, skiing in the Bavarian Alps is a popular pastime as is visiting the Christmas Markets. While the city hosts numerous beer festivals all-year-round, Oktoberfest is the most famous, which, combined with the annual Oktoberfest Rugby 7s tournament, makes October one of the most popular times to travel to Munich.
Both modern and historic, Munich is also famous for the BMW World and Museum as well as the dirndl-wearing Bavarian beer waitresses. And let’s not forget the city’s renowned warmth and festive atmosphere, known as ‘gemütlichkeit’. Munich loves its tradition, its beer and its cars – and that’s just an idea of why you need to visit Germany’s third-largest city on vacation.
