Munich is a huge city with several district articles that contain information about specific sights, restaurants, and accommodation. Munich (German: Munchen, Bavarian: Minga) is the capital city of the German federal state of Bavaria.

Within the city limits, Munich has a population of more than 1.5 million, making it the third most populous city in Germany. Greater Munich including its suburbs has a population of 2.7 million. The Munich metropolitan region which extends to cities like Augsburg or Ingolstadt has a population of more than 5.6 million.

Located at the river Isar in Southern Bavaria, it is famous for its beautiful architecture, fine culture, and the annual Oktoberfest beer festival. Munich has a thriving cultural scene and many travellers are absolutely stunned by its architecture. Although it was heavily damaged by Allied bombing during World War II, many of its historic buildings have been rebuilt, including its largest church, the Frauenkirche cathedral, and the famous City Hall.

Munich is a major international centre of business, engineering and research, exemplified by the presence of two research universities, several multinational companies, and world class technology and science museums like the Deutsches Museum and BMW Museum.

Districts : Munich is divided into 25 administrative districts. However, those districts don’t necessarily reflect historical relationships and connections of neighbourhoods, or make much sense to travellers. Therefore, the districts provided below describe entities in a travel rather than administrative sense. Most of Munich’s main attractions are in the Altstadt and Maxvorstadt; the districts of Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt and Haidhausen are major night-life spots. The other areas, while mostly residential, feature some hidden gems, which are definitely worth a visit.

  • Altstadt (Old City)
    The city centre with a pedestrian zone that is one big shopping street, and the majority of Munich’s most famous travel sights around Marienplatz
    The Brain of Munich with a relaxed and studenty atmosphere, which is home to most attractions that aren’t in the city centre, including the world famous galleries Pinakotheken, along with cozy cafes and bars and several universities
    Night-life area immediately south of the centre, home to many cafes, restaurants, bars, clubs and theatres, hotels and hostels, and the focal point of Munich’s gay scene. Here find Munich Central Station, the Oktoberfest grounds and, last but not least, the Deutsches Museum, the world’s biggest museum of science and engineering.
    Around the station Munich East, to which Europe’s largest contiguous party area Kultfabrik & Optimolwerke draws tens of thousands of people every weekend
    Northern Munich
    The Northern part of Munich is full of parks, gardens and relaxation areas. It includes the district of Schwabing, dominated by 19th-century architecture and the famously expansive English Garden, the park and palace of Nymphenburg, the Olympiagelande (site of the 1972 Olympic Games) with the BMW Welt and the Allianz Arena in the far north end.
    East Munich
    A mostly residential area with an upmarket neighbourhood to the north, a working-class neighbourhood and the Bavaria Film Studios to the south, the Munich trade fair grounds in the east, and the Flaucher beaches along the east side of the river Isar in the west.
    South-West Munich
    Scarcely populated in the west and mainly residential area in the south, with the main attractions Munich Zoo and the Flaucher river islands lying in the east of the area along the river Isar

Culture : The people of Munich do not like their city to be associated only as a city of beer and the Oktoberfest, and indeed the Bavarian Kings transformed Munich into a city of arts and science in the 19th century, and also quite notable architecture. Many of the city’s finest buildings belong to this period and were built under the first three Bavarian kings during the first half of the 19th century. Munich’s outstanding position among other German cities may have faded a bit, due to Berlin becoming the German capital again in the 1990s, but it is still a vibrant and important city of culture.

The Nationaltheater, where several of Richard Wagner’s operas had their premieres under the patronage of King Ludwig II, is the home of the world famous Bavarian State Opera and the Bavarian State Orchestra. Next door the modern Residenz Theatre was erected in the building that had housed the Cuvillies Theatre before World War II. Many operas were staged there, including the premiere of Mozart’s “Idomeneo” in 1781. The Gartnerplatz Theatre is a ballet and musical state theatre, while another opera house, Prinzregententheater has become the home of the Bavarian Theatre Academy. The modern Gasteig center houses the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra.

Many prominent writers worked in Munich. The period immediately before World War I saw economic and cultural prominence for the city. Munich and especially its then suburbs of Schwabing and Maxvorstadt, became the domicile of many artists and writers. Nobel laureate Thomas Mann, who also lived there, wrote ironically in his novella “Gladius Dei” about this period, “Munich shone”. It remained a center of cultural life during the Weimar period with figures such as Bertolt Brecht and Lion Feuchtwanger.

Bavaria has been the long-time antipode of Berlin: While the Protestant Prussian kings focused on building military strength, Bavaria’s Catholic Wittelsbach kings were more interested in creating a centre of arts and science following the examples of cities in northern Italy. Bavaria takes a position among the German states with a strong emphasis on its independence and has its own conservative party, the Christian Social Union (CSU), which strongly advocates Bavarian interests in Berlin.

Unlike Berlin which for historical reasons has been cut off from the surrounding Brandenburg countryside or Hamburg which prides itself of being a free Hanseatic city, Munich can rely on a local elite willing and eager to shovel state funds its way to the never-ending chagrin of people in other areas administered by Munich such as Franconia. If a royal residence since the early 1800s and subsequently the capital of Germany’s most independent minded state looks the part, it is in no small part due to the Munich centric Bavarian politics and the special role of the CSU since 1949. Among other things the CSU has 3 ministers in the federal government inaugurated in 2018 while East Germany has none.

Munchner share a lot of characteristics with the rest of Bavaria and indeed it became popular again among older and younger people to wear traditional Bavarian clothing at least during the Oktoberfest and similar traditional beer festivals. One notable difference is politics: whereas the rest of Bavaria is a stronghold of conservative Catholicism, Munich has been governed by a liberal coalition of Social Democrats, Greens and the Rosa Liste (a gay rights party), and only 36.2% of residents are members of the Catholic church while 13.3% are Protestant, 0.3% Jewish and 50.3% are members of another religion or follow no religion.

Access : Coordinates: 48.133333, 11.566667 / By plane : Munich Airport / Munich’s main airport is 1 Franz Josef Strau? International Airport (MUC IATA) (30 km (19 mi) to the north-east, close to the city of Freising.). It’s Germany’s second busiest airport and Lufthansa’s second hub. Built in the 1990s, it’s reasonably modern and spacious. The simplest way to reach the city centre is by S-bahn (suburban train) – follow the signs to the station beneath the terminal. Lines S1 and S8 both go direct to the city centre, taking 45 min, for a single fare of €11.60. Trains run about every 10 min daytime, and keep running at reduced frequency all night. There are also intercity bus connections leaving from the airport directly. If you intend to travel on to another city it might be worth checking for a bus directly from the airport.
Allgau Airport Memmingen (FMM IATA) is around 110km (65 mi) west of Munich close to Memmingen. It’s rather misleadingly marketed as “Munich West” by Ryanair. Other names include “Memmingen Airport” or “Flughafen Allgau”. There are shuttle buses to Munich with timetables aligned to Ryanair’s schedule. One-way tickets are €19.50, or €15 if booked via the internet. The buses arrive (and leave) close to Munich Central Station.

By train : Munich Central Station (Hauptbahnhof or main station) (5 min on foot from the historic city centre of Munich in Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt district.). To the very heart of Munich at Marienplatz it’s just two stops on the suburban train (S-Bahn). Munich Central is well connected to the city’s dense public transportation network.The station has a traveller-friendly infrastructure including several restaurants, shops, a tourist information and a Deutsche Bahn ticket and travel agency office. There are left-luggage lockers, with a flat fee (coins only) for up to 24 hours of €4 for a small locker, or €6 for a large one.
Deutsche Bahn uses Munich as one of its main German hubs and operates direct regional and long-distance connections from many German cities. This includes several connections with ICE, TGV, and railjet high-speed trains:

ICE 11 from Augsburg, Ulm, Stuttgart, Mannheim, Frankfurt, Fulda, Kassel, Gottingen, Braunschweig, Berlin
ICE 25 from (Nuremberg,) Wurzburg, Fulda, Kassel, Gottingen, Hannover, Hamburg
ICE 28 from Nuremberg, Jena, Leipzig, Berlin, Hamburg
ICE 31 from Nuremberg, Wurzburg, Frankfurt, Mainz, Koblenz, Bonn, Cologne, Duisburg, Essen, Dortmund, Osnabruck, Bremen, Hamburg, Kiel
ICE 41 from Nuremberg, Wurzburg, Frankfurt, Cologne, Duisburg, Essen
ICE 42 from Augsburg, Ulm, Stuttgart, Mannheim, Frankfurt, Cologne, Duisburg, Essen, Dortmund
ICE 1004 from Nurnberg Hbf, Erfurt Hbf, Halle (Saale) Hbf, Berlin Sudkreuz, Berlin Hbf (tief)
RJ 61 to Salzburg, Linz, Vienna, Budapest
TGV 9575/9576 to Augsburg, Stuttgart, Karlsruhe, Strasbourg, Paris
International direct trains to Munich run from Austria (Salzburg, Innsbruck, Vienna and Graz), the Czech Republic (Prague), France (Strasbourg and Paris), Hungary (Budapest), Italy (Verona, Venice, Bologna, Milan and Rome, and from Switzerland (Zurich and Basel). Passengers from the Netherlands, Belgium and the Channel ports should change in Cologne. From Poland, the Baltic countries and Russia, change in Berlin.

The once extensive network of sleeper trains serving Munich has been curtailed quite a bit and none of them are run by DB any more. However Nightjet operated by OBB (Austrian Federal Railways) still serves Munich as do some seasonal trains from other operators.

Two other train stations are located in the west (Munich Pasing) and the east (Munich East (Ostbahnhof) of Munich. Both stations are connected to the public transportation system and serve as transportation hubs for Deutsche Bahn’s regional and long-distance trains

By car : Munich is well connected to other cities in Germany and Austria by the German autobahn network:

A 8 connects Munich with Augsburg, Ulm, Stuttgart and Karlsruhe in the west and Rosenheim and Salzburg in the east
A 9 leads to Ingolstadt, Nuremberg, Leipzig and Potsdam/Berlin in the north
A 92 connects Munich with Landshut and Deggendorf in the north-east
A 94 has only been partially completed and will lead to Passau
A 95 connects Munich with Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the south
A 96 connects Munich with Lindau at Lake Constance in the south-west
Autobahn A 99 is an autobahn ring around the city, which connects the various autobahns. Munich has two inner ring roads in addition to the A 99: Mittlerer Ring (B 2R) and Altstadtring. While the latter two form a complete circle, the A99 does not and likely never will.

Traffic in Munich can be a challenge at peak times. Therefore, and especially due to the shortage of parking within the greater city centre, you might want to leave the car in a P&R parking deck (see the “Get around” section) in one of Munich’s suburbs near an S-Bahn station and use public transport within the city

By bus : ong-distance buses can be an inexpensive way to travel to Munich from several neighbouring countries, especially from eastern and southern Europe and the Balkans. Buses arrive at 3 Munich Central Bus Station (ZOB) (close to Hackerbrucke suburban train (S-Bahn) station). The website informs you about all departures and arrivals and also lists the company operating any given line. While historically domestic buses were few and far between, there are now a number of domestic bus lines as well. Despite signs, itineraries, and maps that imply that ZOB is right next the central train station, it’s actually a 10-15 min walk from one to the other due to the train tracks in the area. Munich ZOB is one of the few stations in Germany that is able to cope with the growth in the market since 2012 and one of a very few with significant shopping and dining options. Compared to even some other major city ZOBs (or curbside stops), Munich ZOB is a breath of fresh air.

Due to the ever-changing bus market, it would be a fool’s errand to try to list all bus connections leaving and arriving from Munich ZOB, however, the main player in the market by far is Flixbus with a few other German and international companies also serving Munich, including Deinbus Eurolines, Sindbad and Deutsche Bahn subsidiary IC Bus (bookable as if it were an IC/ICE train).

Highlights :

  • Munich offers visitors many sights and attractions. There is something for everyone, no matter if you are seeking arts and culture, shopping, fine dining, night life, sport events or Bavarian beer hall atmosphere. The listings in this section are just some highlights of things that you shouldn’t miss, if you are visiting Munich. The complete listings are found on individual district pages.
  • Royal avenues and squares  Four grand royal avenues of the 19th century with magnificent architecture run through Munich’s inner city.
  • Briennerstrasse starts at the magnificent Odeonsplatz (where you can find Feldherrnhalle, Theatinerkirche and the Residence) on the northern fringe of Altstadt and runs from east to west past Wittelsbacherplatz with the statue of Maximilian I and Karolinenplatz, with a black obelisk built in 1833 by Leo von Klenze in honor of the Bavarian Army, to Konigsplatz, designed with the Doric Propylaea, the Ionic Glyptothek and the Corinthian State Museum of Classical Art. The eastern section of Briennerstra?e is lined with upscale shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants. It is dominated by neo-classical buildings such as the Alfons-Palais at Wittelsbacherplatz, which today serves as global headquarters of Siemens AG.
  • Ludwigstrasse also starts at Odeonsplatz, but runs from south to north, through the district of Maxvorstadt, connecting the inner city with Schwabing. It is lined by buildings of Italian Renaissance designed by Leo von Klenze and Italian Neo-Romanesque architecture designed by Friedrich von Gartner, e.g. St. Ludwig’s Church and the main buildings of the University of Munich (LMU). Ludwigstra?e ends at Siegestor, a triumphal arch crowned with a statue of Bavaria with a quadriga of lions, north of which it is named Leopoldstra?e.
  • Maximilianstrasse starts at Max-Joseph-Platz, where the Residence and the National Theater are located, and runs from west to east crossing the river Isar before ending at Maximilianeum, the Bavarian state parliament. The avenue is framed by mostly neo-Gothic buildings influenced by the English Perpendicular style. The western section of Maximilianstra?e forms with Residenzstra?e Munich’s most upscale shopping area and is home to flagship stores of luxury labels, upscale retailers and one of Munich’s most luxurious hotels, the Vier Jahreszeiten.
  • Prinzregentenstrasse runs parallel to Maximilianstrasse beginning at Prinz-Carl-Palais. Several museums can be found along the avenue, such as Haus der Kunst, the Bavarian National Museum and Schackgalerie. The avenue crosses the Isar and circles the Friedensengel monument passing Villa Stuck. Prinzregentenstra?e also forms a southern border of the English Garden, where you can watch surfers riding a permanent wave at the Eisbach creek.
  • Buildings and landmarks :  The vast majority of landmarks commonly associated with Munich can be found within the bounds of Altstadt, and include the imposing Neues Rathaus (new Town Hall) with animated figurines, as well as the old one, the Frauenkirche cathedral whose twin, “salt and pepper shaker” towers are an unmistakable symbol of Munich, the royal palace of Residenz and many more historic buildings. The Maxvorstadt adds more magnificent buildings housing many of the museums the city is famous for. For more lavish palaces and gardens, take a trip out to Nymphenburg or Schleissheim.

As Munich has been a rich and large city for centuries, and it has been almost completely rebuilt after World War II, you will find historic buildings throughout the city, also in districts like Haidhausen and Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt. That said, as the city’s regulations stipulate that no building can be taller than the Frauenkirche towers, and the amount of land available for any additional construction is limited, you will not find much contemporary architecture in the city, and most of the post-war buildings are quite unremarkable residential and office blocks. One exception would be the BMW complex in the North of the city, known for its unique shape.

  • Museums and galleries :  Bavaria’s kings transformed Munich into Germany’s art capital during the 19th century, and it is still home to world-class collections and museums. The Kunstareal in Maxvorstadt includes 16 museums, 40 galleries and 7 art schools. An equally impressive collection of museums is to be found in the very centre of the city. The renowned Deutsches Museum of science and technology is to be found further south in Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt, and there are interesting museums to be found also on the other bank of the Isar in Haidhausen. Another museum of global reputation is the impressive BMW Museum, documenting the history of Munich’s famous car manufacturer, in the northern part of the city, where you will also find the Nymphenburg palace.

Most of Munich’s museums are closed on Mondays, except for the Nyphemburg and Deutsches Museum — and also the Neue Pinakothek and Pinakothek der Moderne, which instead close on Tuesdays. The BMW Museum is also closed, but the adjacent BMW Welt, a state of the art BMW showroom is open for public visit on Monday. Hence, the best way to plan your itinerary is to visit the museums on days other than Monday and use Monday to explore the city. For many museums, Sunday will be the best day to visit since admission is only €1. This includes the Pinakotheken, Museum Brandhorst, the Bavarian National Museum and the Glyptothek as well as the Staatliche Antikensammlungen.

  • Parks : Despite being one of the most densely populated cities in Germany, you can enjoy several large urban parks in Munich, especially in the warmer months. The most known is the English Garden in the North of the city. Also of note are the Olympiapark at the site of the 1972 Olympic Games further northwest and the Munich Zoo, southeast of the centre.

Activities : Oktoberfest , Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer festival, lasting for 16 to 17 days and usually ending on the first Sunday in October. In 2017, the festival ran from Fri 16 Sept until Tue 3 Oct, with much rain and heightened security. In 2018 it will run from Sat 22 Sept to Sun 7 Oct. Oktoberfest, known locally as Wies’n, is sited at Theresienwiese, a huge meadow 1.5 km west of Altstadt in the district of Ludwigsvorstadt.

Other festivals :  Maibaum aufstellen. On 1st May (which is a public holiday in Germany) strange things happen in some Upper Bavarian villages and even in Munich. Men in Lederhosn and girls in Dirndln carrying long poles meet on the central square. With these poles an even longer white-blue pole is erected. There is usually an oompah band playing, booths selling food and drinks and tables where you can sit down and enjoy this non-touristy spectacle. The large white-blue pole you find in almost every village and dozens in Munich (e.g. on the Viktualienmarkt) is called Maibaum (meaning may tree – known in English as a maypole) and the villages compete who has the tallest and the straightest one. It is cut down every three to five years and re-erected in the following year. Ask a local which village or district of Munich does it this year and be there not later than 10:00. There’s several traditions revolving around maypoles, like the dance of the unmarried men and women. The weeks before 1 May, each village has to guard its maypole, because if some other village manages to steal it, they’ll have to buy it back. Usually with beer.

Tollwood (summer: Olympic park, winter: Theresienwiese). This three week long festival combines ethnic food, souvenir shops, concerts & theater and it is very popular among the locals.
Streetlife Festival (Odeonsplatz, Ludwigstra?e, Leopoldstrasse). This two-day street festival takes takes place twice a year, showcases live music, handcraft and other arts on Munich’s car-free streets, and attracts several hundred thousand of visitors.
Corso Leopold (Leopoldstrasse). This festival of art and music is taking place simultaneously with the Streetlife Festival.
Isarinselfest. The Isarinselfest (Isar island festival) takes place in September and offers music, culture and activities for kids.
Lange Nacht der Musik. The Lange Nacht der Musik (long night of music) takes place in early summer and includes more than 100 concerts and music venues throughout the city.
Munchner Sommernachtstraum (Olympiapark). The Munich Midsummer Night’s Dream is a music festival with fireworks that takes place in July.
Theatron Festivals (Olympiapark). Two other music festivals in Munich, the Theatron Pfingstfestival during Whitsun and the Musiksommer in August.

Impark (Olympiapark). The Impark summer festival which includes a beach.
Christopher-Street-Day. The CSD Munich takes place in mid July.

Electronic Music Festivals. Munich is also a hotspot for rave and electronic dance music in Germany. It has to offer more electronic music festivals than Berlin. Popular electronic music festivals in and around Munich include Isle of Summer, Utopia Island, Greenfields, Traumfanger, Back to the Woods, Schall im Schilf, FNY Festival, Wannda Circus Open Air, Contact Festival, EOS Festival and the Echelon Festival which takes place about 32 km south of Munich

Theatre, opera, and music :  Munich is a very culturally active city, and you will find many theatres showing a wide variety of performances. You will find most of them in the Altstadt, Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt and Maxvorstadt. While you may not find many plays in languages other than German, the many opera, ballet and musical shows can be enjoyed regardless of your language knowledge.

If you want to see a movie, keep in mind that foreign movies are normally dubbed with German voices. Adverts will generally indicate if the movie will be shown in its original version (i.e., no overdubbing) with the abbreviations OF (Original version), OmU (Original with German subtitles), and OmeU (original with English subtitles). In the movie theatre right next to subway station Stiglmaierplatz, named “Cinema”, they play all movies in the original language. Other options are the “Museums Lichtspiele” or the big Multiplex cinema “Mathaser” at Stachus, which usually show 1 or 2 movies in their original version.

Sport :  River-Surfing (Eisbach). Throughout the year, join the locals surfing on the Eisbach River at the edge of the Englischer Garten, at the bridge near the Lehel U-bahn station.
Swimming. Swimming within Munich’s city limits is possible in the river Isar as well as in several artificial lakes such as for example the Riemer See or the Langwieder lake district. Further, Munich’s communal company SWM provides ten public indoor swimming pools and eight outdoor swimming pools. At the weekend, many people from Munich seek rest at one of the numerous lakes in the Alpine foreland.
Wintersports. Munich is one of the few cities in the world, where you see people in a ski dress in the public transport Skiing is popular at Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Several companies offer good value day trips to Austrian ski resorts such as Kaltenbach (Zillertal), St. Johann and Matrei.
Football is almost a religion and from August to May live games of FC Bayern Munich and TSV 1860 Munich at Allianz Arena can be seen.

FC Bayern, Sabener Strasse 51-57, 81547 Munchen, ? +49 89 699 31-0. Serial German football champion and internationally one of the best clubs in the world.

Used to control the Columbus research laboratory of the International Space Station, and as a ground control centre for the Galileo satellite navigation system. It is in a large research facility of the German Aerospace Centre.

Markets :  For fresh food markets, visit the Viktualienmarkt in the Altstadt or the Elisabethmarkt in Schwabing.

Christmas Markets :  There are many of these Christkindlmarkte, or Christmas fairs , including the large Tollwood, but also smaller markets, where you can buy Christmas biscuits (Lebkuchen), souvenirs and the typical Gluhwein (hot mulled wine).

Marienplatz (U-/S-Bhf. Marienplatz). Big & commercial market, it stretches across the shopping street, so you can mix Christmas market shopping (and eating) with “normal” shopping. If you walk south towards Sendlinger Tor, you’ll reach more traditional woodcarvers’ stands.
Chinesischer Turm, Englischer Garten 3, 80538 Munchen (U/Bus station Munchner Freiheit or the Bus 54, which has a stop Chinesischer Turm), ? +49 89-38 38 73 20. from late November until January: M-F 12:00-20:30, Sa Su 11:20:30. nice Christmas market in a pretty park surrounding. Highly recommended if there’s snow!
1 Christkindltram. A Christmas tram that runs only during Advent through the city center every half an hour (departure is from Sendlinger Tor). The tram is nicely decorated, where people can enjoy Christmas songs and mulled wine (Gluhwein). One-way ticket costs €1.50.
Seasonal and flea markets
Throughout the city regular markets are well worth the visit when they are taking place and a Saturday morning must when the sun is shining! The flea markets in Munich can be exceptional in that they are generally genuine private citizens selling their unwanted belongings with a minimum of commercial interest. In addition to the weekly offerings, you’ll find several neighborhood ‘courtyard fleamarkets’ events in the summer months.

Auer Dult. A week-long market and festivity, that takes place three times a year (spring, summer and autumn) in Haidhausen primarily dealing in household goods and antiques but also offering beer and amusement rides. Definitely try to see this if you haven’t seen Oktoberfest!
Theresienwiese. This is supposedly the largest annual flea market in Europe, taking place on the first Saturday of Fruhlingsfest (Spring Festival – occurs in the middle of April) on the same site as the Oktoberfest in Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt. There are generally several thousand citizens offering up their second-hand goods while dealers of new wares are forbidden. A yearly highlight for flea market and antique lovers, if the weather is reasonable.
Hofflohmarkte. This is where particular Munich city quarters encourage their residents to open up their courtyards whereby entire sections of the city become a combination flea market and private courtyard siteseeing—very interesting for viewing corners of the city one usually would not see. The event dates are coordinated by the city. Inquire at local information centers for specific dates.

Go next :


  1. Instead we hopped on a train and went back to the famous Hofbrauhaus in the centre of town and had effectively the beer tent experience there. We ordered wurst and sauerkraut and schnitzel, washed down with beer for Simon and wine for me. So for all those wondering, YES, you can go to any of the Munich beer houses and not drink beer. There is also a small selection of wines and other drinks available.
