Munich, the capital of Bavaria, is as quaint as it is modern – a beautiful combination of provinciality and progressiveness. Steeped in history, and packed with museums, castles and seasonal festivities, a visit to Munich promises something for everyone. Munich’s high tourist season is during the summer months from June – August with temperatures around 30 degree Celsius. From September – October, Munich hosts the Oktoberfest and several other festivals attracting crowds from all over the world. Accommodation and travel can be quite expensive and hard to find if you have not booked in advance. Winter temperatures dip to minus 25 degrees Celsius, but if you can brave the cold, then the pretty festival lights, famous Christmas markets and freshly covered ski slopes make for an interesting time to visit Munich. From March – May, the city transforms from its lethargic winter mood into a lively spring atmosphere with longer days and fresh blooms making it the best time to visit Munich before the high season starts.

Tips and tricks for visiting Munich

You can Bring Your Own Food – BYOF to many of the biergartens if you buy drinks there. If you are a foodie, be sure to sample the hearty Bavarian fare like bowls brimming with thick stews and plates piled high with sausages and potatoes.

Most museums have free admission on Sundays so try to plan your itinerary keeping that in mind. Avoid jaywalking, littering or walking in bike lanes, as you could be fined. While the entire city is patrolled and safety is a top priority, be aware that during Oktoberfest. it is possible that you may encounter some drunken revelry. You can blend in with the locals and remember to say ‘Bitte’ (please) and ‘Danke’ (thank you).
