Famed for its cavernous beer halls and lively central square, Munich is home to beautiful castles and buildings that are centuries old. The annual Oktoberfest celebration needs no introduction: Lederhosen-clad visitors swarm into the city, happily clinking beer glances and dancing to Bavarian music. The Baroque Nymphenburg Palace is the perfect place to get lost for the afternoon, before a gentle stroll through the Old Town Hall at Marienplatz. Take a seat at the café in the heart of the Old Town, tuck into a traditional Bavarian pretzel and saviour the atmosphere of Germany’s cultural capital.
