All About Munich
With a powerhouse economy all of its own and the biggest concentration of theatres and art venues in Germany, Munich is a force to be reckoned with. Tradition plays a big role in Bavaria, from cheerful oompah bands to world-famous lederhosen. Here, centuries of history converge with technological advances, generous green spaces, and the city’s great love: beer. Breweries can be found at every turn, dotted with communal benches for lively conversation and plates piled high with sausages and soft pretzels.
Away from the chatter and brass instruments, Munich boasts a varied and popular art scene, with a slew of galleries large and small and a bone fide arts quarter, Kunstareal. After a morning strolling around in the shadow of the imposing 15th-century Frauenkirche (“Women’s Church”), head north for an immersive experience at the famous local car museum, then find a quiet spot in Olympiapark for a leisurely picnic under the bright Munich sun.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Munich?
The Oktoberfest festival is an absorbing experience that draws visitors from all over Germany and around the world. Drop in between mid-September and the first Sunday in October to drink in the lively atmosphere. Festive fun is guaranteed at Munich’s sprawling Christmas markets, which run from late November. Spring and summer are popular times with foodies and adventurers, who head to the region for the short asparagus season and stunning hikes in the nearby Bavarian Alps. There aren’t wild extremes in weather here, and snow and heat waves are rare events. If you arrive in the city during the weekend, it’s worth bearing in mind that the vast majority of stores — including supermarkets — are closed on Sundays.
What are the top things to do in Munich?
Looking for some interactive entertainment? You could become part of the show at the intimate Drehleier Theater on the eastern side of the Isar River. Pick from comedy performances, musical offerings, and even burlesque acts at this popular local venue; you can grab a bite to eat here, too.
Bellevue di Monaco
Located in the heart of the city, Bellevue di Monaco provides homes for young adults, families, and mothers in need of support, while the on-site café’s inclusive approach includes a multicultural menu and a “pay what you can” policy. Volunteers run language classes, social meet-ups, and even a bike repair shop.
Watch surfers in the park
On your morning stroll around Munich’s peaceful English Garden, don’t be alarmed at the sudden sound of thundering water. Simply grab a coffee and settle down by the rushing Eisbach creek to watch the city’s gaggle of surfers hang ten and show off their skills. Be aware, though: unless you’re an experienced wave rider pro, it’s advisable to leave this activity to the regulars.
