Munich Travel Guide

Introduction

Munich (German: München, Bavarian: Minga, typically used by people in the rest of Bavaria) is the capital city of the German federal state of Bavaria. Within the city limits, Munich has a population of more than 1.4 million, making it the third most populous city in Germany. Greater Munich including its suburbs has a population of 2.7 million. The Munich metropolitan region which extends to cities like Augsburg or Ingolstadt has a population of more than 5.6 million.

Munich, located at the river Isar in the south of Bavaria, is famous for its beautiful architecture, fine culture, and the annual Oktoberfest beer festival. Munich has a thriving cultural scene, with the museums considered by some to outrank Berlin in quality. Many travellers to Munich are absolutely stunned by the quality of the architecture. Although it was heavily damaged by Allied bombing during World War II, many of its historic buildings have been rebuilt and the city centre appears mostly as it did in the late 1800s, including its largest church, the Frauenkirche cathedral, and the famous New City Hall (Neues Rathaus).

Munich is a major international centre of business, engineering and research, exemplified by the presence of two research universities, several multinational companies, and world class technology and science museums like Deutsches Museum and BMW Museum.

Also sometimes called "the northernmost Italian city," due in great part to Italian and Italianate features of its architecture, Munich is very Catholic in feeling, with many buildings having statues of the Virgin and Child or saints in niches, and is replete with notable and beautiful Catholic churches.
