Munich is the capital of the Bavaria state in southern Germany. It is a city famous for its architecture and beer, but also has a variety of theatre and opera venues. The world-class museums and galleries also appeal to visitors on Munich holidays.
The Munich International Airport is the landing point for tourists flying in. The airport is located about 18 miles outside of Munich and is connected with the central city via S-Bahns (metro trains). S-Bahn lines run to the northern, eastern and western Munich districts, and are especially useful for getting around in the cold snowy weather in November - March. The warmest month in Munich is July, but that is also among the wettest. September and October have the least average rainfall. Many tourists visit the city in October for the annual Oktoberfest beer festival where visitors can sample the finest German brews in a traditional German atmosphere! Munich is one hour ahead of GMT.
As one of Germany's art capitals, there are numerous galleries to visit during Munich holidays. Among them is the Museum Brandhorst which houses a collection of modern and contemporary art. The Pinakotheken has three art museums that display 19th - 20th century paintings. Among the largest museums in Munich is the Deutsches Museum which houses an impressive variety of aircraft models among other items. The National Bavarian Museum has a large collection of European artifacts and other antiques. The Neuhausen & Nymphenburg, a baroque palace, has magnificent architecture and landscaped gardens.
Munich also has notable parks such as the 910-acre Englischer Garten. It is the green heart of the city that also has some expansive beer gardens. There is also plenty of park space around the Olympiapark which includes a 291 meter tower with revolving restaurant. Don't miss the huge Munich Zoo where animals roam in their natural habitats.
