Things to do in Munich

Munich, the capital of Bavaria, is possibly most famous as the birthplace of Oktoberfest. But don't worry. It has much more than just beer to offer. Anyone can have fun visiting this city beside the Bavarian Alps at any time of year. Oktoberfest is a haven for beer lovers, so if you like beer and are in Munich in October, then you're in the right place. Get refreshed in one of the many beer halls and beer gardens. The perfect accompaniment to your beer is a traditional wurst (sausage). December in Munich is a time full of festivities, and most importantly, Christmas markets. Stalls with traditional food and drinks, Christmas items and gifts are dotted throughout the city. Munich is a city that doesn't make you choose. You can experience old and new, city and country, traditional and modern, all without leaving the city limits. Stroll through one of the largest urban parks, The English Garden. This 900-acre oasis among the hustle and bustle of the city is appealing. Munich was home to the Dachau concentration camp and is where the Nazi party first rose to power. It was a dark time in Germany's history but part of their history nonetheless. Munich, like few cities, merges old and new seamlessly. Historical monuments, squares, and palaces contrast with modern art galleries and buildings. Take in a traditional show or a contemporary street art exhibit. Munich’s culture is uniquely its own. This southern German town has so much to offer. You really can have it all when you visit Munich!
