Capital of Bavaria, on a plateau overlooking the Bavarian Alps, situated on the left bank of the Isar, Munich traditionally knows how to live well, with an attitude very "southern" than other more severe cities in Germany.
So fun, Oktoberfest, rivers of beer, nightclubs, restaurants of all kinds, large parks, but also a lot of culture, art museums, art exhibitions and music festivals.
And, of course, many industries, which make
Munich a rich city, as can be seen walking through the streets of downtown.

The historic core of the city, whose origins lie in the Middle Ages, is made from Marienplatz and the church of St. Peter, the oldest (XII century) parish, and the Neue Rathaus (1867), with its famous chimes with figures enamelled copper that every day at 11 mimic a tournament medieval and folk dances. Not far away, the Residenz Castle of the Dukes of Bavaria (XVI century), now converted into a museum.

Always in the center stands the Frauenkirche, Cathedral of
Munich and Metro Bavaria, a late Gothic (1468-88) brick.

What to visit

Apart from the monuments already mentioned, the Deutsche Museum, the Theresienwiese park where we celebrate the beer festival, the Neue Pinakothek and Neue Staatgalerie (modern painting), the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum (Bavarian art), Antikensammulung (classical antiquity) and the 'Alte Pinakothek.
