About Munich

Located in Germany’s southern region is the easy-going city of Munich. Best known for its architecture and being the host of the famed Oktoberfest, Munich is a vibrant cultural hub spot. It’s the perfect place to visit if you want to experience a city that is equal parts bustling and tranquil. Munich is also home to some of the largest breweries in the country and is easy to navigate.

Weather & Best Season to Visit

The ideal time to visit Munich is between March and May, as during this period crowd levels are low and temperatures are mild. The weather in Munich tends to be partly cloudy year-round with winters being very cold and summers being mild and wet. If you plan to visit during September or early October, beware of huge crowds as this is when Oktoberfest occurs and over 6 million visit Munich to take part in the folk festival.

Things to Do

Munich is a very scenic city with many architectural and cultural attractions to see. Take a walk through its central medieval Marienplatz square, which houses landmarks like the Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall), a stunning Neo-Gothic government complex. The Neues Rathaus has a well-loved glockenspiel show that chimes and re-enact stories from the sixteenth century throughout the day. Within Marienplatz square, you will also find many shops and restaurants, and the Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall). If you are interested in history, you won’t want to miss out on visiting the Deutsches Museum. This massive museum features 70,000 square feet of science and technology exhibits from 50 different fields. It is the world’s largest science and technology museum and even has the first motorized aircraft built by the Wright Brothers.

It’s not a trip to Munich without a stop at a beer garden to enjoy a pint. There are many beer gardens throughout the city, but one of the most famous ones is the Viktualienmarkt Beergarden, located in Munich’s central food market. This authentic Bavarian beer garden also serves up traditional snacks like sausages and potato dumplings. It makes for the perfect place to sit back and relax under the shade of chestnut trees. Once you have a bite to eat and finish your beer, be sure to wander around the Viktualienmarkt and check out the many vendors who sell everything from fruits and vegetables to exotic olive and truffles. It is one of Europe’s finest food markets and several stalls have been run by generations of the same family.
