"München leuchtet" — "Munich shines" — and how!


So said Thomas Mann way back in 1902 - and his words still hold true today. This beautiful old city is a media, arts and cultural metropolis, the capital of Bavaria, home of princes and kings for centuries and, to top it all, Germany's economic centre for technology - the so-called 'Silicon Valley' of Europe!

Munich by numbers

With close on 1.5 million inhabitants, this 858-year-old historical centre is Germany's third largest city. It boasts 14 colleges and universities attended by some 94,000 students, 61 theatres, 83 cinemas, 2 opera houses, 46 museums and art collections including the world-renowned 'Neue Pinakothek', 'Alte Pinakothek' and 'Pinakothek der Moderne! To add to this impressive list are 6 breweries and, of course, the Oktoberfest (Sept. 22nd-Oct. 7th 2018). This is the world's biggest festival, attracting over 6.5 million visitors each year to its legendary beer tents.

Munich and its surroundings

The area around Munich is certainly not to be missed! Head south and you will discover crystal-clear lakes and the stunning mountain scenery of the Bavarian and Austrian Alps - superb ski centres in the winter and fantastic countryside for hiking, mountain biking and much more during the rest of the year. King Ludwig II's fairytale castle 'Neuschwanstein' nestles in the Alpine foothills only 120 km away. Last but not least, many other historical German and European cities are close enough for weekend visits - Augsburg (60km); Salzburg (136km); Nuremberg (160km); Prague (380km); Vienna (430km), to name but a few.
