Munich in Germany is a great place to visit with many fun and unique things to do. I have compiled a list of 5 reasonsáwhy you should visit Munich; this should paint you a picture of the city and demonstrate why it is such a wonderful place to visit,áregardless of your likes and dislikes.

Oktoberfest and beer halls

In terms of entertainment, Oktoberfest is probably what the city of Munich is best known for. Oktoberfest is a festival thatálasts for 16 days, starting in late September and going into early October. It is a beer festival – Munich is known to haveásome of the best beer in the world and the purpose of Oktoberfest is to celebrate that. There is also live music and a fairáat the festival and the atmosphere is simply electrifying. If you want to taste the beer in Munich but are not planning onávisiting when Oktoberfest is on, then not to worry. Munich has many beer halls and tents that are open all year round, andámany of these are in the tourists areas so they should be relatively easy to find.

Englisch Garden

The Englisch Garden is a large beautiful park located right in the middle of Munich. It’s a lovely place to visit, maybe justáto go for a walk or relax with your family and some refreshments. It presents the more peaceful and pretty side toáMunich, that some people might not be fully aware exists. There is food and beer served at places inside the park andáthere is even the chance to try out some surfing.

Christmas markets

Welcome Christmas in Munch and visit a Christmas market. There are a few but the most well known is theáChristkindlmarkt which is highly popular for its welcoming atmosphere, it is always bustling with tourists and also withálocals. Not only does it offer a fantastic shopping experience filled with local produce and gifts, it is also the setting forámusic, dancing and nightlife, not to mention an amazing assortment of food and drink, including that worldáfamous and extremely tasty Gluehwein.

Munich museums

Whatever your interests, Munich has a great variety of museums. The old Pinakothek is an art museum, the Deutsches Museum is filled with all things science, and there is even a BMW museum,áwhich is filled with all different kinds of BMW vehicles. You of course have a choice of the standard history museums asáwell, where you can learn a lot about Munich’s interesting and extensive past.

Bavarian lakes and mountains

Take a short car journey out of the city centre and in no time you will find yourself at numerous beautiful lakes – such as theáTegernsee, Schliersee, Garmsich and Partenkirchen – only an hour or so away. Here you can reallyáappreciate the beautiful lakes, whether you take a boat trip or enjoy doing watersports from knee-boarding to water ski-ing. Alternatively you can find the nearest restaurant and enjoy a glass of wine whilst taking in the beautiful scenery.

    Oktoberfest is great fun! I recommend the Augustine beer hall. I would love to see more of Bavaria countryside.

    Bavaria, specifically Munich, boasts some of the best German cuisine I’ve encountered during my travels. Food is definitely a reason to visit the city. A suggestion: go on the food tour. Get the culture/history spiel while locals take you to where THEY eat.
