Munich

Munich

[Translate to fr:] Despite being home to some 1.3 million people and such industrial giants as Siemens and BMW most visitors go to Munich looking to sample the famous Bavarian Gemütlichkeit, and find it most usually at the bottom of a Masskrug (litre mug) in one of the cities justly famous beer-halls or gardens.

Not only during the Oktoberfest is Munich the place to wash down sausage, kraut and dumplings with some of the best tasting beer on the planet until the stomach groans, the ears buzz, ( the legs wobble? ) and the heart sings. The Münchners are famed for their ability to find an excuse to celebrate all year round, be it in a cosy kneipe with 20 seats or the world’s biggest beer garden with over 8000, and rest assured assured, a pair of lederhosen will never be far away.

It is though of course not just the beer which makes Munich one of Central Europe’s favourite backpacker destinations…

* The three Munich`s Pinakotheken ( masters, impressionists and modern ) are regarded as among the world’s finest art galleries.


* The Deutsches Museum houses the world’s most extensive science and technology collection.


* 4 x European Cup (Champion's League) winners FC Bayern Munich are one of the world’s premier football clubs.


* The castles and palaces of ‘mad’ King Ludwig are just part of a rich historical heritage.


* The nearby Dachau concentration camp memorial makes a very sobering reminder of a less than glorious recent history.


In addition the day trip potential from the Bavarian capital is huge, with lakes, mountains and castles ( including Neuschwanstein, the ‘disney castle’ ) within easy range.
