Munich has almost more to do and see in the surrounding area than it does in the city itself!
Around 1 hour south of the city are the start of the German Alps. The town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen is only 45 miles (70 kilometers) from Munich, and is Germany's premiere Alpine town. At nearly 10,000ft (3000m) above sea level, Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze, can be visited from here.
There is something for everyone here, so why not hire a car and make the most of your trip!
