Flights to Munich
Munich, depending on your viewpoint, might oust Berlin from top spot on cultural rankings. Art, science and beautiful architecture abound in this prosperous city that half of Europe visits every October for a little beer festival.
Munich officially became a city in 1175 and is now an economic powerhouse with artistic flair and scientific prestige. Graced with an extensive rebuild effort post World War Two, there are squares, royal residences and key civic buildings that look the same (albeit slightly fresher) as they did centuries ago at the time of Bavarian kings. The people maintain quiet pride in their city that melds history and contemporary life.
Things get a little more boisterous when more than 5 million people attend the annual Oktoberfest, which began a little more modestly in 1810. But if you're done with your stein's share of the 7 million litres of beer served in the halls, where else do you go while you're in town? Here's a quick guide to some of the districts:
- City Centre (Marienplatz/Isartor/Karlsplatz/Odeonsplatz) – admire the old city hall, Glockenspiel; the famous beer hall, the Hofbräuhaus; or ride a permanent wave in the creek in the huge park at Englischer Garten
- Schwabing – enjoy the trendy shoe stores and upscale restaurants and bookstores of this charming, leafy neighbourhood
- Haidhausen – dance up a sweat in more than 30 clubs and discos and stroll the next morning through the beautiful French Quarter
- Nymphenburg – escape the city centre crowds and enjoy some respite in the Schloss Nymphenburg gardens
