Munich Travel Guide

by our Germany expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryMunich (München), the former royal capital of Bavaria, undoubtedly has its dark side. Hitler’s failed Beer Keller putsch, Neville Chamberlain’s ‘peace in our time’ talks, the black day of the1972 Munich Olympics massacre. But it is a beautiful city with the fun and gaiety of the Oktoberfest being much more typical of the place and its people. The ‘greatest beer festival in the world’ actually lasts for 17 days during which no less than 7 million litres are consumed, with many types specially brewed by Munich’s 15 breweries and accompanied by a vast array of traditional foods. The city also has its Christkindlmarkt in December. For the more sober-minded, there are many fine parks and palaces with the landmark Frauenkirche Cathedral being an unusual red-brick renaissance style.
