It is a bustling home to over more than 1m people and is the fourth biggest city in Germany. The city has a proud sporting heritage and it is well regarded as a publishing hub and a major financial centre.

What To See In Munich
There is plenty to see and do in Munich regardless of your age or interest. The Allianz Arena, home of the two main football teams in the city is an obvious highlight but this aside, you will find plenty to love and enjoy.
Traditions and Celebrations
If you mention Munich to most people with regards to traditions or celebrations, it is likely that the most common response you will receive will relate to Oktoberfest. This is a 16 day festival which celebrated local Bavarian beer and it is one of the most famous celebrations in Germany and indeed the world. It is said that over 6 million people attend at Oktoberfest, making it a huge celebration. It has been part of Bavarian culture since 1810.
Culture is hugely important in Munich and the city has played host to a great number of composers with Mozart, Wagner, Mahler, Strauss and Orff, amongst others, having all played in the city. The Munich Biennale is still celebrated and the city continues to be a hub of classical music and culture.
With over 6,000 licensed premises in the city, you will never be short of a place to enjoy a drink or a night out in Munich. The Schwabing area is of particular interest, viewed as being the artists area and where students live. There is also the Kultfabrik and the Optimolwerke, which used to be compounds for industry but have now been turned into pubs and clubs.
There are many major tourist attractions in Munich and there is something for all ages. Youngsters and the young at heart will adore a trip to Munich zoo whereas those who like to look back in time will enjoy St Peter’s Church.
As the capital city of Bavaria in Germany, there is much to see and enjoy in Munich but you may wish to see more of your time in Germany when you are here. Thankfully there are a number of towns and villages around Munich, all situated within 20km of the city. If you want to quickly get out of the city, you will find places like Haar, Planegg, Kirhcheim, Grunwuld, Garching, Vaterstetten and many more to give you a taste of rural Germany.
While Munich is a city where you can party and enjoy yourself, it makes sense that you may be there on business too. If you are, you will be delighted to know that there are a great number of venues that provide hotel and conference centre facilities, if you are looking to find a venue that can take care of all of your Munich business needs, these venues will be of note:
- Munich Palace
- Le Meridien Muenchen
- Maritim Hotel Munchen
- Am Moosfeld Hotel
- Hotel Prinzregent am Friedensengel
- Econtel Munchen
- Eden Hotel Wolff
- Platzl Hotel
- Innside Premium
- Hotel Jedermann
If you want to be taken seriously when it comes to business, it makes sense that you will pull out all the stops when it comes to making a positive first impression. This is exactly what these venues will provide but there is more to making a good business impression than your hotel venue. If you need to arrive in style or you want to send guests off in great comfort, the Europe Shuttle executive or corporate transport services will be of great benefit.
