Munich
Travel Guide

St Peter\'s Church showing a church or cathedral, religious aspects and skyline

Whether savouring a gourmet brew in a shady beer garden, browsing cutting-edge art and architecture or relaxing in picturesque parklands, visitors will delight in the Bavarian capital.

Explore sophisticated streets characterised by intriguing architectural landmarks in Munich. This economic powerhouse, which is known as one of the word’s most liveable cities, attracts visitors with its traditional customs, beer halls and manicured gardens.

Take a tour of Munich’s historic inner city and admire the soaring gothic architecture St. Peter’s Church (Peterskirche). Walk to the Asam Church (Asamkirche) for a taste of Rococo building style. Though many buildings were damaged during World War II, subsequent reconstructions reflect the original designs. For more modern architecture, visit the Olympic Tower. The art museum Pinakothek der Moderne is worth a visit for its grand façade and its intriguing exhibitions within.

Munich has a well-established beer culture. Whether attending Oktoberfest, the world-famous beer festival, or exploring the city’s beer gardens, prepare for a range of gourmet brews. Devoted beer connoisseurs will want to tour “Big Six” breweries, including the Hofbräuhaus, which was founded by royals, and the world-famous Löwenbräu.

Lovers of cars and designs will be at home at Munich’s BMW headquarters. Tour the home of the world-renowned car brand, then explore BMW World, where you’ll see preserved models of the car from throughout the 20th century.

When you need a break, take a calming stroll through Munich’s English Garden, a forested parkland crossed by the Isar River. Just next to the city centre, its peaceful lawns and riverside paths make it the perfect getaway from the urban rush.

For an easy way to see the best of Munich, jump aboard a sightseeing bus that leaves from the main railway station. Otherwise, rent a bike and explore the city at your own pace, using the city’s dedicated bike paths to navigate the streets. An efficient system of public trains and buses also provide easy transportation around the city. Whatever your form of travel, you’ll find it easy to fall in love with the pretty and varied sights of a traditional city.
