Munich is a cosmopolitan city that retains the traditional charm and cultural wealth of a provincial town, whilst exuding a warm Mediterranean flair. There are fascinating museums and sights and the Frauenkirche, with its imposing dome-topped towers, is Munich's most famous landmark. Relax in one of the many beer gardens, enjoy tasty Bavarian specialities and, of course, no visit would be complete without a 'Maß' of beer!
Owned by the German State, the Hofbräuhaus is one of Munich's oldest breweries. Renowned as the "most famous pub in the world" this pub is well worth going to for a local pint. A Munich city break often includes a trip to The Hofbräuhaus, which also provides live music. Concerts are regularly held in the function rooms, providing visitors with the opportunity to experience traditional Bavarian music and the famous "Gemütlichkeit" (public festival).
