Why go to Munich

As host to the world-famous Oktoberfest every autumn, beer may be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Munich. And while you can certainly enjoy tankards galore of locally brewed beer on a city break in Munich, there’s also art to admire, green space to explore and cultural attractions aplenty.

Beer is very important to Munich, with six main breweries producing it for Oktoberfest as well as numerous beer gardens and beer halls in the city. Even if you miss Oktoberfest, there are plenty of venues to choose from to enjoy a stein, including the Hirschgarten beer garden with seating for more than 8,000 drinkers.

There are other green spaces to roam around on a Munich city break too. The Englischer Garten (English Garden) is one of Europe’s largest city parks, with a Greek-style temple and, of course, beer gardens. The grounds surrounding the Nymphenburg Palace are free to wander around too, with water features and a lake.

Art lovers flock to Munich to visit its art district, Kunstareal. In this area, you’ll find museums, galleries and other cultural institutions. Three Pinakothek art galleries are highlights – one showcases paintings from the 14th to 18th centuries, one modern art, and the other 19th and early 20th-century paintings and sculptures. On a wander around the city, you’ll also discover some fantastic street art.

Alongside the art, there are plenty of other cultural big-hitters to check out in Munich. Head to Marienplatz, a famous square in the heart of the city’s old town, where you’ll find the Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall) with its clock that has regular displays for crowds of onlookers. The baroque Nymphenburg Palace is also one of the city’s top attractions while Neuschwanstein Castle, around an hour-and-a-half drive away is a popular day trip.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
