Munich - cosmopolitanism paired with tradition

It is the incomparable mixture of cosmopolitanism and tradition, of high-tech and down-to-earthness, of innovation and charming composure that makes Munich so attractive to tourists from all over the world.

Local recreation in the middle of the city

The Bavarian capital, with a population in the millions, offers everything a guest could dream of for his or her perfect stay: a wide-ranging art and culture scene, unlimited sports and shopping opportunities, a lively bar and nightlife, a diverse gastronomy and an excellent public transportation network.

The city owes its high leisure and recreational value to the numerous green oases such as the English Garden, the Isar meadows, the parks of the castles, and the proximity to the Alps and the Upper Bavarian lakes. Last but not least, Munich would not be the southernmost of Germany's major cities if there were not more open-air cafés, open-air festivals and summer concerts under the stars here than elsewhere.

Art and cultural metropolis

As a metropolis of art and culture, Munich enjoys an international reputation. Three top orchestras, international music festivals, outstanding opera houses and concert halls ensure a wide range of music in all styles, from classical to jazz, rock and pop to the avant-garde.

Munich has more than 50 museums and exhibition halls to offer. A steadily growing world-class museum quarter attracts art-interested guests from all over the world.

Shopping und Kulinarik

Last but not least, Munich is a shopper's paradise with chic fashion boutiques and designer outlets, cool store ateliers, large department stores, original antique stores and excellent bookstores.

The gastronomic offerings span a wide range from star cuisine to snacks at the Viktualienmarkt and down-to-earth tavern culture. The ideal place to enjoy Bavarian delicacies and a cold beer is under chestnut trees in one of Munich's many beautiful beer gardens - the place where tourists and locals meet, where old friendships are cultivated and new ones are made - it's all in the mix.
