Ah, Munich: the home of lederhosen, sausages, and one-liter beer mugs. That’s probably the image of the Bavarian capital that comes to most people’s minds, but there is so much more to Munich than Oktoberfest. Even if your travel plan happens to coincide with the famous festival, be sure to experience the real München, a city of green parks, incredible architecture, and a prosperous population of mountain climbers, automotive engineers, and everything in between (and Bavarians are some of the nicest and most hospitable people you might ever meet). Whether you’re looking for drunken revelry or an education in history and culture, cosmopolitan Munich has it all.
Modern Munich is a beautiful architectural amalgamation with roots in the Middle Ages. A stroll through the city center tells the story of a town that has been constantly in flux. It’s an inspirational hodgepodge of stately red-roofed residences and magnificent political buildings, crisscrossed by wide boulevards and punctuated with church spires. Museums are spread far and wide across the city, but the pinnacle is the Pinakothek complex, which houses three sublime art emporiums. Beer gardens fuel hungry culture-seekers with sausages (try a traditional breakfast of Weisswurst), pretzels, and frosty glass mugs of brew.
