Munich

Swing a stein, explore Bavarian history or simply experience life in a modern German powerhouse.

The bustling home of Oktoberfest, Munich has an eclectic mix of medieval and postmodern architecture. Many of the landmarks in Munich display a proud royal heritage, as well as a sporting pedigree that can be rivalled by only a few other cities. When you fly to the capital of Bavaria and Germany's third-largest city, you'll experience a cultural and economic powerhouse like no other.

Festivals and events

Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest needs little introduction. Six million people visit each year to experience the unique party atmosphere, drink Bavarian beer, eat local cuisine and enjoy the entertainment. The world's largest beer festival and folk fair gets underway, somewhat confusingly, in mid-September, with a carriage parade and a beer barrel tapping ceremony.

Munich Spring Festival

Sometimes referred to as 'Little Oktoberfest', the two-week Spring Festival has taken place in April or May every year since the 1960s. The festival begins with a grand parade and shooting display. Other highlights include a flea market on the first Saturday and a firework display on the second Friday. And, of course, there are the obligatory beer tents, live music and fairground ride.

Auer Dult

The Auer Dult, one of Munich's oldest markets, is staged three times a year in the Mariahilfplatz square next to an imposing church. This grand jumble sale is the place to search for antiques, rarities and traditional dress.
