Munich Holidays Overview


Munich is a Bavarian metropolis that combines its dynamic cosmopolitan attitude to a fairy tale small town atmosphere to offer its visitors with one of the most unique sights and cities on earth. However, the sight of the majestic Alps, superb parks and museums, beautiful art galleries, a liberal community, splendid festivals and exotic cuisines manage to transform many of these visitors into “would be” or “want to be” residents.

Munich seems to revel in the fact that it manages to offer cosiness and prosperity at the same time and allows its rich history, ancient folklore and old world traditions to co-exist with modern age BMWs, designer brands, adrenaline pumping music festivals and a fun loving crowd. Moreover, despite all the sophistication that it might showcase to its visitor, the city and its citizens ultimately follow the principle of peaceful coexistence. Anyone visiting the city today would not believe it if they were told that the city was completely destroyed because of the two World Wars. However, it's never say die attitude allowed it to recuperate from its setbacks and hold on to its history and culture as well.

Oktoberfest, the legendary beer festival that is held every year in Munich, might be the best time to visit the city, but the Olympiapark (the place where the 1972 Olympics were held) and the trendy Marienplatz are not to be missed. Those looking for a life changing experience can also visit the remains of a concentration camp at Dachau that still cries from its experiences of the horrors of the Holocaust.

Munich holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Hofbrauhaus
Am Platzl 9
www.hofbraeuhaus.de
What is it? Beer has been swilled at this world-famous tavern site in the centre of Munich since it became a royal brewery in 1605. Equally famous is the Bavarian jollity and conviviality, known as 'gemuchtlikheid', which has emanated directly from the Hofbrauhaus in Munich along with the beer which flows freely there each day, served by robust rosy-cheeked young women clad in Bavarian dress in litre-sized beer steins. The cheerful atmosphere that reigns constantly in the establishment's different halls is helped along by the foot-tapping strains of traditional Bavarian 'oom-pah' bands and drinking songs. When the beer becomes too much, soak it up with a delicious salty pretzel or a German speciality from the menu, such as liver dumplings, potato soup or a variety of delicious sausages. Hours of Operation: Phone:(089) 2901360

 

 

2. Marienplatz

What is it? The Marienplatz is the heart of Munich and the site of its most important historic buildings. The square is dominated by the Neo-Gothic Town Hall featuring its famous Glockenspiel, both built in the 19th century. The Glockenspiel delights visitors when it chimes the hours every day at 11am, 12pm, 5pm and 9pm with its 43 bells, accompanied by moving clockwork figures that display vingnettes from Munich's history. The Town Hall has a tower that can be accessed by a lift. The centre of the square - which was once a vibrant farmer's market - features a statue of the Virgin Mary after which Marienplatz was named. Visitors can also explore a toy museum in the Old Town Hall on the square, and the Frauenkirche, Munich's cathedral, dating from the 15th century. Hours of Operation: Town Hall: Monday to Thursday 9am to 4pm, Friday 9am to 1pm, and weekends 10am to 7pm. Toy Museum: daily 10am to 5.30pm. Cathedral: daily 10am to 5pm Phone:New Town Hall: (089) 2331; Toy Museum: 294 001; Frauenkirche: 290 0820

 

 

3. Olympia Park
Spiridon-Louis-Ring 21
www.olympiapark-muenchen.de
What is it? Munich's massive Olympic park complex was constructed for the 20th Olympic Games in 1972, but remains a marvel of modern engineering. Its main stadium is a like a massive tent, which can seat close on 70,000 spectators, topped by the largest roof in the world, extending for 720,000 square feet (66,890 sq metres) and made of tinted acrylic glass. The roof collects rainwater which is used to fill the adjacent Olympic lake. Tent roof tours (with or without an abseiling option) are on offer. Visitors to the site can enjoy a spectacular view from the revolving restaurant and observation terrace which tops the 950ft (290m) high Olympic Tower. Near the tower is the BMW Museum, which displays the history of Germany's famous automobile manufacturer. Far from being a remarkable "white elephant", the park is still in constant use as a lively leisure and recreational centre for the city; on more than 200 days of the year it is the venue for rock and pop concerts, sports events, exhibitions and trade fairs. Hours of Operation: The tower is open daily 9am to midnight Phone:(089) 30670

The first keg is tapped in ceremonial style to open the two-week celebration, which draws hundreds of thousands of revellers from all around the world. Apart from the rollicking beer halls where traditional Bavarian bands belt out their old favourites, the festival offers a host of carnival games and fun park rides, as well as stalls selling a range of German delicacies.
