so much more than beer heaven and Lederhosen

Munich was almost completely destroyed in two world wars, yet it has managed to recreate much of its historic, Bavarian past. Today this Southern Germany’s largest and most famous city is one of Europe’s best-known and most prosperous Metropolitan areas. Its ability to stay at the forefront of technological developments and maintain its cultural heritage is often summarized in the characterization as a city of “laptop and Lederhosen”.

Although Munich is most commonly known for the world-famous Oktoberfest event where the beer flows and Schlager music plays, it is a gem for culture lovers. In this unofficial Bavarian capital the locals are very proud of their roots and traditions. Music and culture are celebrated with a total of 60 theaters, 45 museums, 90 movie theaters, three symphony orchestras, impressive architecture and of course a comprehensive list of local and international restaurants and beer gardens.
