Munich, located in southern Germany, just north of the Bavarian Alps, is the capital of Bavaria and the third largest city in Germany. The city is most famous for its annual Oktoberfest Marienplatz, but the city offers much more than just beer. The city is home to several important art galleries, excellent examples of both modern and traditional German architecture, and sweeping green spaces like the Olympiapark, site of the 1972 Munich Olympics.
Munich offers so much to see and do that you won't know where to begin. Top attractions in Munich include the Bavarian National Museum, the Max-Joseph-Platz and the nearby opera house, Nymphenburg Palace and, of course, the famous glockenspiele.
As fascinating as the City of Munich can be, every visitor should look into day trips from Munich. You can take a Neuschwanstein tour from Munich and see the hilltop castle that inspired Disney's Cinderella's Castle, take a Salzburg tour from Munich and see the locations where the "Sound of Music" was filmed, or take a Dachau tour from Munich that pays tribute to the thousands who died during this dark period of world history.
Whether you're in Munich for a day or a week, the city offers plenty of fascinating, historic and tasty things to see and do.
