Munich Travel Guide

Munich City travel

Despite being home of the Oktoberfest, Munich deserves so much more than a 2 week merry making adventure. Compared to the rest of German cities, Munich is a charming little slice of European paradise. Explore history in the old town, satisfy your inner geek at the many museums, work on your tan at the Isar, cater to your inner party monster at one of the many clubs, take a day trip to explore castles and mountains and of course eat all the pretzels and drink all the beer! Prost! Don’t miss my collection of fun day trips from Munich!
