Experiencing Munich

Exciting sights are waiting for you

Oktoberfest

Visit the Oktoberfest, the world’s largest Volksfest (beer festival and travelling funfair) which takes place on the “Theresienwiese” (Theresa’s Field) in Munich every year. It dates back to the festivities that were held due to the marriage of crown prince Ludwig, who was to become King Ludwig I. of Bavaria and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810.

Traditional breweries from Munich, numerous fun rides and genuine “Wiesn-Klassiker” create the typical mixture of high-tech and tradition. A festival for the people of Munich and all national and international guests who would like to experience Bavarian culture, coziness and hospitality. 

The City of Munich

The centre of cultural life – the old town of Munich! The historic centre fascinates with its many sights, shopping facilities, traditional inns and modern Cafés and restaurants. We recommend a stroll around the famous “Viktualienmarkt” at the foot of “Alter Peter” – the oldest parish church in Munich.

The sights that attract most visitors are all located in the centre: Karlsplatz (Stachus), Frauenkirche (the Church of our dear Lady), Marienplatz (a central square in the city center ) Neues Rathaus (the new town hall) and the famous Hofbräuhaus.

Englischer Garten and Seehaus

The English Garden is one of the largest urban public parks in the world. For more than 225 years the inhabitants of Munich and visitors have been enjoying the spacious green, which makes you want to take a walk/stroll around, go running or simply relax. Visit “Seehaus”, a famous beer garden at the Kleinhesseloher lake, or the “Chinese Tower” (a 25-metre-high-wooden structure) or just watch the surfers on the world famous wave of one of the artificial streams flowing through the English Garden. In winter many strollers, cross-country skiers or people who simply love snow can be found in the “Englischer Garten”. At the Monopteros, a small, round, Greek style temple, young children have fun with their toboggans.

The Olympic Park Munich

The Olympic Park – one of the most impressive and most famous places in Munich. It’s not only an attraction for tourists, but at the same time a leisure and sports park and an international event centre. Some of the most important buildings in Munich can be found here as well: the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Hall and the Olympic Tower. The spacious park and various leisure time facilities, for example the “Sea Life”-aquarium, fascinate thousands of visitors every year.

BMW World & BMW Museum

Right next to the Olympic Park there are two of the most popular sights in Bavaria. Visit and discover BMW World and the BMW museum in Munich. BMW World is a masterpiece of futuristic architecture where visitors can gaze at the different products of BMW, from the new BMW cars to motorbikes.

The BMW museum displays the fascinating and innovative history of BMW. It contains engines and turbines, aircraft, motorcycles and vehicles in a plethora of possible variations. In addition to actual models there are futuristic-looking, even conceptual studies from the past 20 years

Allianz Arena
