Attractions in Munich


Rathaus on Marienplatz

Munich really has something for everyone. Its many museums, architecture and art galleries keep those interested in culture occupied, while its Beer Gardens and parks offer relaxing areas just to take in the city at your own pace.

On the outskirts of the city are even more attractions that take you far away from the city and into a completely different world of farmers, mountains and the rural way of life.

See the links below for more information about how to get the most out of your stay in Munich.
