The Bavarian capital draws and enchants visitors by its numerous attractions and interesting places not only in the old town, its marvellous architecture and its unique flair as well as by its rich cultural life, including many outstanding museums, theatres and concert venues.
The visitor who is interested in the eventful history of Munich can learn more about it having a walk through the streets of the old town, but also visiting, for example, the Residenz Palace, the University or the Nymphenburg Castle with its marvellous park.
Given the abundance and the wide variety of shops, Munich is an ideal place to undertake extensive shopping sprees. And if you are hungry or thirsty, there are innumerable modern or idyllic traditional Bavarian cafés, restaurants, inns and beer gardens.
There are marvellous parks, such as the “Englischer Garten” or the Olympic Park, where the guest can spend pleasant and restful moments. In the “Olympic Park” you find a special attraction, the “Olympic Tower”, from where you can enjoy breathtaking views over the city and even over the Bavarian Alps.
The BMW-World and the Wildlife Park "Hellabrunn" are particularly interesting places for automobile enthusiasts and families. At the end of September the impressive "Oktoberfest" attracts each year crowds of visitors, providing fun for guests of all ages with its funfair rides and its gastronomy tents.
