Munich

Introduction

Munich is an economic boomtown and a hotspot for the media. Huge parks and the Isar river make it one of Germany's most natural cities, offering a great quality of living. A mixture of world-class hotels, sprawling green space and cosy beer gardens give Munich an edge over many of its German siblings.

Essentials

  1. Visit a beer garden. It’s worth a trek to Waldwirtschaft Grosshesselohe for live jazz and the best spare ribs.
  2. Climb the 306 stairs of the Alter Peter, a Catholic church with a viewing platform. On a bright day you will have a view that stretches for more than 100km.
  3. Admire Munich’s river surfers. Located next to the Haus der Kunst (Prinzregentenstrasse), watch the Eisbach surfers test their skills.
  4. Rent a car. Amazing lakes and mountains are a 30-minute ride away.
  5. See the city's art: Museum Brandhorst houses an exquisite private collection. In addition, a relaunched Haus der Kunst has opened up its historical archive alongside top-tier contemporary art.
