A beguiling blend of alpine beauty, storied Bavarian heritage and up-and-coming cosmopolitan charm, Munich wears its title of 'Germany's second city' with good humour.
While the gorgeous architecture, grown-up art galleries and world-class museums tell one side of the story, the delightfully vibrant Marienplatz, in Alstadt (the Old Town), and the high spirited celebrations of the annual Oktoberfest offer a glimpse into the duality of the city's personality.
It's quite possible to stroll around the centre of Munich and take in many of the attractions on foot. Its very manageable size enables you to gain a good cross section in a relatively short time. Just to start with, the Neues Rathhaus is a must for art and history lovers, with its intricate façade of gargoyles and dragons, the Augustiner Bruastuben offers a Holy Grail for beer lovers and the stunning Englischer Garten provides the city a green space bigger than Central Park.
