Born and raised in Munich I can show you an insider view of the Bavarian capital and its surroundings.Certified by the Tourist Guide Association of Germany BVGD:
Munich has many aspects to explore. It is both a metropolis and a rural country town.
When the sun is shining from a bright blue sky, you can walk through the historical city centre, drink an espresso in one of the sidewalk coffee shops, stroll through one of the many parks, such as the 500 acre Nymphenburg Palace, or maybe rent a bicycle and enjoy a fresh beer in a shady beergarden. Then Munich is like a southern city and you feel that Italy is near.
When it is raining, its character changes. Munich becomes a northern city and now is the time to visit one of its 45 museums. Maybe, you would like to visit the Deutsche Museum, one of the most important technical museums in the world, or the three world-famous Pinakotheken (art galleries).
You could plan a leisurely shopping tour or sit in the famous beerhall "Hofbräuhaus" to listen to Bavarian music.
Whatever season you choose to visit, there'll be an opportunity to participate in one of Munich's feasts:
In Winter, there is carnival or "Fasching", as it is called in Munich. In Spring there is the strongbeer festival, in Summer, the opera festival and many open air concerts, and in Autumn the famous Oktoberfest takes place (by the way, "Oktoberfest" is the best known German word internationally). The year ends with the idyllic Christmas market in December.
It does not matter in which season or weather you visit Munich. There will be always something for you to discover.
