Things to Do in Munich
During your trip to Munich, there are some attractions that simply must be seen. Head downtown to explore some of the top sites, including New City Hall, which features the iconic Glockenspiel, and the Residenz where Bavarian kings once lived. You can also see three of the historic gates that were erected when the city was established, a handful of magnificent churches and the Nationaltheater opera house.
One of the city's claims to fame is its annual Oktoberfest, and those that come during this time of year can take part in the refreshing festivities. The city introduced Oktoberfest to the world in 1810, and every year it attracts nearly 7 million people with its delicious food and authentic Bavarian brew. But you can also have a rich ale experience any time of year - it is, after all, the Beer Capital of the World. The city is home to the Hofbräuhaus am Platzl, the most renowned beer hall in the world, where you can enjoy a locally produced beverage.
