Munich Germany is a city in the state Bavaria. Would you like to know what the real interesting sights in Munich Germany are? I will tell you 12 of my good ones. First, once you arrive in the city, go to the tourist information office. It is located at Munich Germany main station (outside) or at Marienplatz (downtown).

Also, since you already know that this city is venue of the well-known Oktoberfest, like Lincoln is well known for it’s Christmas Market, there is actually no need for me to tell you anything about that, right?

But did you know that the first television set in the world was exhibited in 1930 at the Deutsche Museum in this City? Today, a lot of movies and TV series are being produced at the Bavaria Studios in Geiselgasteig (in the south of Munich). Famous films such as The Boat, Cabaret, and The Never-Ending Story originated here. You can explore the truth and tricks of the film business by booking a Bavaria-Film-Tour.

The city has a lot to offer for all ages and tastes. Whether you are interested in history, architecture or art; whether you enjoy strolling through parks, fancy a trip to the Bavaria Film Studios or long for a visit to one of Munich's world famous traditional beer gardens, you'll always find something exciting in this multi-faceted city.

TOP 5 Bars and Restaurants

1 An absolute must-see and must-experience is the "Hundskugel" (Dogs Ball) located in Hotterstrasse in old town. This is Munich's oldest house, which has the perfect ambience for original Bavarian food (e.g. "Schweinshaxe" -- knuckle of pork). Quite frankly, once you were here, your friends will become envious you were there without them.

2 The "Schuhbecks in den Suedtiroler Stuben" (Schubecks in the South Tyrol Rooms) is a tavern with notable factor. They serve original Bavarian cuisine in high quality. It is located at "Platzl" in old town.

3 Another excellent restaurant with original Bavarian cuisine is "Gasthaus Beim Sedlmayr" (Tavern by Sedlmayr). The funny and happy waiters make your time even more glamorous and jollier. Their menu has "all you ever need" once you are in Munich.

4 The "Haxnbauer im Scholastikahaus", located next to Marienplatz in Sparkassenstrasse, inspires visitors to stay longer than they might want once they enter. It's just amazing, old woody walls and tables, smelling beer and meat, just unforgettable.

5 If you are looking for a chance to see famous football stars and actors, you have to go to the noble P1. I must admit it is not easy to enter this exceptional bar, but definitely worth more than one try. You will find it in Prinzregentenstrasse. The location is, however, quite hidden. Only a small sign beside stairs refers to the legendary club discotheque. Tip: It might be a bit easier if you go in as a couple.

Sightseeing and culture

1 Stroll along Ludwigstrasse. Ludwig I. underlined the royal Munich with this classicistic boulevard. As a road of sciences, the Ludwigstrasse (Ludwigstreet) is one of the most monumental and most generous roads created in the 19th century. Created by Max Widmann, reminds us of the owners and name giver who had to withdraw in 1848 after the Lola Montez affair.

2 The Maximilianstrasse (Maximilian Street) spreads still the old flair while strolling through this historical street. With museums and theatres, galleries and numerous exclusive shops, this splendid road certainly belongs to the most distinguished addresses of Munich Germany.

3 Are you art and historical interested? Then walk along the Prinzregentenstrasse (Prince Regent Road). It is considered as museum mile. Prince Regent Luitpold was the origination of this avenue road name, at the end of the 19th century.

4 The Englischer Garten (English Gardens) is Munich Germany's famous 900-acre park. It actually starts in the heart of the city and rolls into the countryside. The park offers shaded paths for walking and cycling in summer and picturesque frozen lakes in winter. In addition, it contains four beer gardens (Chinesischer Turm, Seehaus, Hirschau, Aumeister), whose inviting atmosphere begs you to stay long after sunset.

The English Garden, was planned in 1789, in the year of the French revolution, by Count Rumford (and exiled American). He thought that people in Munich needed to be given a generous space they could enjoy while living in poverty.

5 Marienplatz is world-wide well-known with the "new" Neo-Gothic City Hall and its "Jingle Bells" sounds. Actually a huge square with some interesting taverns. By the way, from Munich Germany's main station, it is a quite short way to downtown and old town -- just a few minutes walk.

The Neues Rathaus (New City Hall) built from 1867 to 1909 in Flanders Gothic style, its façade (over 300 feet in length!) features strikingly elaborate stone ornamentation. Its 260-foot tower is besides St. Peter's Church and the towers of the Cathedral one of Munich's most distinctive landmarks. Its carillon is the largest carillon in Germany. When the mechanism (the world famous Glockenspiel) is activated (at 11am, noon, and 5pm), brightly coloured figures in enamelled copper emerge. They are nearly life size and perform the traditional Coopers' Dance (funny!) and a jousting match. It is very amusing, popular and draws millions of tourists a year ... of which you might be one.

Enjoy your visit!
