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.
