When visiting Munich for the first time, you will quickly realize that traditional heritage clashes with modern urban lifestyle here, just like anywhere else. Munich fuses Bavarian sociability with a dynamic and pulsing style of living. Green surroundings, pure nature and the great outdoors are only within a stone’s throw, as well as classical architecture and extraordinary breath-taking constructions such as the Olympian Stadium from1972, with its tent-like roof. Munich, truly a city of contrasts.
Get your Lederhosen on, grab your Dirndl: for two weeks, Munich and its visitors make their way to the Wies’n to celebrate the Oktoberfest. Munich's largest and most traditional breweries warmly invite you to join festivities at the Theresienwiese in the last few weeks of September each year. Drinking beer by the liter, eating traditional Bavarian food such as pretzels and Hax’n (roasted pork knuckle), listening to live brass bands playing traditional Bavarian music as well as up-to-date music, and enjoying yourself with hundreds of other people from all over the world, dancing and singing the hours away in one of the famous beer tents.
Besides the Oktoberfest, beer gardens are an inviting opportunity to relax and enjoy your drink and fresh regional products. Try out a real Bavarian Breakfast with white sausages and wheat beer before 11 a.m. and relish under the shades of beautiful old trees. Bavarian lifestyle at its best.
Munich really shows off some scenery: whether old or modern architecture, it is breathtakingly beautiful. Royalists will be thoroughly appeased when visiting famous places such as the Munich Residence, Nymphenburg Castle or Amalienburg. Modern structures are mostly found in famous museums and exhibition centers. The Old and The New Pinakothek houses the most important art pieces of three centuries. Industrial revolution and significant engineering achievements can be visited and admired in the German Museum. Automobile expertise is demonstrated at the BMW Museum and the BMW Site. The BMW group displays established products as well as the newest achievements in automobile engineering.
Besides the baroque gardens next to the different castles, Munich features one of the largest pleasure grounds in Germany, the English Gardens. In 1789 the gardens were opened to the broad public. Their structure was supposed to follow nature’s ideal and provide a contrast to the symmetrical baroque parks, an idea quite popular in England at that time, which hence explains its name. Over the centuries, they advanced to be a place of recreation for many Munich inhabitants and a symbol of open-mindedness in the world (due to the nudist zones alongside river Isar, just in case you wonder why naturists walk around the park).
When King Ludwig II., referred to as “Kini” in the Bavarian population, died, Neuschwanstein Castle had not yet been finished. He invested several million Marks in construction and architecture, chopped and changed his mind about interior design almost daily and never intended his palace to be publicly available. Nowadays, Neuschwanstein Castle is visited by over 1.4 million people annually. Ludwig’s hideaway became a crowd puller in the classic sense of the word. Not so far away, the Bavarian lakes – Chiemsee, Tegernsee, Ammersee and Starnbergersee - take alpine romance to a new level: blue lakes and mountains are quite a sight all year round. The Bavarian lakes offer great alternative meeting locations outside the city of Munich, especially for those who wish for a more relaxing location for workshops, teambuilding events or other incentives.
Besides being beautiful and luxurious, the metropolis Munich features numerous sources for events, such as gala dinners, sales meetings, team-building events and so forth.
