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.
Both traditional Bavarian sensibilities and 21st-century youth culture are represented in Munich's mixed nightlife scene. Whether you're seeking authentic local cuisine, a trip to a beer hall to see an oompah band, or a big night out, there are lots of interesting places to drink in Munich!
Munich's bierkellers are an institution dating back centuries. Step inside one of these huge beer halls for Bavarian hospitality at its best – atmospheric, large scale, and non-stop catering. Hofbräuhaus is a fully-fledged tourist landmark, having been established in 1589 as the Royal Brewery of the Kingdom of Bavaria.
For bars and nightclubs, there are two key destinations – Schwabing and Glockenbachviertel. The former is Munich's bohemian quarter, a pub-heavy hangout for artists and university students; the latter has a high concentration of nightspots and is home to a vibrant LGBTQ scene.
The former industrial area of Kultfabrik and the busy side-streets around Gärtnerplatz are also great places to explore in Munich.
