Munich City Break
Munich is the modern, cosmopolitan city with the big heart of a village!
Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful squares in Germany is Marienplatz Square. In the heart of Munich, it is home to the Old and New Town Halls. Head there to watch the glockenspiel which performs twice a day. Reenacting stories from Bavaria’s past, this crowd-drawing clock is a huge part of the city’s identity. In winter, the square becomes a bundle of festive cheer as the Christmas markets appear. Perhaps consider visiting during December for a festive treat.
Another special highlight of Munich is the Hofbräuhaus Beer Hall. Enjoy a stein of beer and traditional Bavarian food. Some evening see performances of traditional music and it’s always an atmospheric place to spend an evening. Explore the Viktualienmarkt, a market of produce and cooked food – a wonderful place to stop for lunch with the locals. Visit the iconic Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), whose green dome towers can be seen for miles around.
Easily accessible with public transport, the Olympic Park is a wonderful excursion. Standing at 291m, the Olympic Tower offers tremendous views over the city and the surrounding area. Inside there is also a small but enjoyable rock and roll museum hosting an array of memorabilia. In the summer, the Olympic Park is a wonderful place to stroll and relax.
Plenty of additional excursions are available. Venture further into Bavaria and perhaps visit charming villages, glistening lakes or the famous castles of King Ludwig II. Come rain, shine or indeed snow, Munich is delightful city and worth a visit any time of the year!
