Munich, Bavaria’s capital, known as the “city of art and beer”, rests on the legacy left by the Wittelbach family, who ruled here for 700 years. Although there are many signs of their influence, and many former royal palaces to visit, Munich is far more than its past, and definitely a place where the old and the modern walk side by side.
For art and culture lovers, the best place to start is the Kunstareal, Munich’s art quarter, with 18 diverse museums displaying everything from the artifacts of Egyptian dynasties, through Dutch masters to 1960s design. Other museums in the city are just diverse, concentrating on everything from the BMW cars made in the area to the history of the world famous Oktoberfest.
Beer has been a traditional part of Munich’s life for centuries, with six huge breweries catering to the needs of the city’s hundreds of beer halls and beer gardens. The most famous beer hall in Munich has to be the Hofbrauhaus, open since 1589, and this plays host, as well as many other venues to the world famous annual Oktoberfest. An estimated 6 million people attend the festival every year, with beer halls bursting with long tables of inebriated Münchners dressed in traditional Lederhosen singing along to oompah bands buoyed up by alcohol, giant pretzels and sausage.
