Explore the city
The capital of Bavaria goes by many names – a cosmopolitan city with a heart of gold, the northernmost city of Italy, Athens on the Isar, the capital of cycling... It also has just as many faces, along with a rich history and a wealth of cultural treasures. There are numerous museums and historical buildings to visit, including Nymphenburg Palace, the Munich Residence, and the Frauenkirche church. The city is also famous for the beer halls and gardens where one can enjoy a variety of Bavarian traditions. This culminates in the largest local festival in the world – Oktoberfest, which brings millions of visitors to Munich every year. That said, our city likes to show off its modern side as well, particularly as a leading European location in the fields of science and business. It also boasts breath-taking architecture that represents a wide range of influences and epochs. Meanwhile, fans of sport and the outdoors are sure to get their fill jogging or cycling along the River Isar or in the English Garden, Europe's biggest urban park. And how could we forget FC Bayern Munich, whose home matches at the Allianz Arena are always a highlight live and in person? With all there is to do and see in the city, it would be easy to overlook everything the surrounding region has to offer, as well. What would you say to a day trip to a lake or the mountains?
