Links and Information about Munich


Munich looks back on more than 850 years of eventful city history. Retrace the steps of the Bavarian kings, think back to the Summer Olympics in 1972 while roaming the Olympic venues or simply enjoy the view from the tower of St. Peter in the very heart of the city.


Does it look like rain? Then it's a perfect day to visit a museum and there is a wide choice in Munich: The Pinakotheken display art which ranges from the Classical Period to the Modern Age, the Munich Metropolitan Museum tells us about the unique urban history of Munich and at the famed Allianz Arena you can peek at the trophies that Bayern Munich has collected over the years.

Markets and Fairs

Everyone knows the Oktoberfest! But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Experience the real Munich at the Auer Dult, a colourful street fair where you buy all kinds of bric-a-brac, visit the Tollwood-Festival, a theatre, music and arts open-air festival which takes place in both summer and winter or just enjoy strolling the historic Viktualienmarkt and experience the wonderful atmosphere and aromas.

Guided city tours

There is no better way to discover the city’s beauty and secrets than by walking it – while being told interesting stories by professional city guides or take in the city from a different angle: guided city tours led by former homeless people working for the street newspaper BISS reveal Munich in a different light.


In Munich, sports matter! Munich has been a host for the World Cups and Olympic Games and is home to the great football clubs FC Bayern and 1860. It is also a paradise for sports enthusiasts and active individuals: Go boulder climbing, surf on the Eisbach, do your laps in the Dantebad or play football in the park – you will never run out of ways to keep fit. And if that weren’t enough, the Alps are also right on your doorstep…
