A lot of people are only aware of the Bavarian capital due to its hosting of Oktoberfest, the world’s biggest beer festival, but there is lots to experience in stunning Munich even after the beer kegs have dried up and the lederhosen packed away.

Known as the ‘city of art and beer’, take time to savour the art scene at the Kunstareal art quarter. Head to the many world-class galleries and museums, particularly on a Sunday when they all cost a euro to enter. Unlike more metropolitan cities, Munich has very little else open on Sunday’s – all shops and supermarkets are closed – giving the city a cosy, timeless atmosphere. The only skyscrapers in this city are at its very edges, and the locals are keen to retain that bustle-free, village feel that separates them from other German cities. Its why you may want to carry cash – not many places here accept credit cards. Full of unique quirks, you’re sure to discover some freakish aspect of Munich life every day, and this is what makes the place so special. There’s nowhere else like it. Surf without an ocean on the Isar river, hike a nearby mountain and enjoy a beer with a cow, then check out the neighbouring castle with its indoor botanical gardens.

Munich’s location also makes it a perfect base for exploring southern Germany and its many Alpine lakes. For some ideas of day trips and excursions, speak to one of our team.
