City Breaks » Munich City Breaks

Munich retains the traditional charm of a provincial town and exudes a warm Mediterranean flair. Age-old traditions exist side by side with modernist architecture, high-design restaurants, bars and shopping facilities, while creative neighbourhoods and a strong cultural scene make Munich a fascinating destination. For culture lovers there are many museums and art galleries to satisfy your cravings, while lovers of architecture will relish the chance to see the Residenz, the Asamkirche and the Schloss Nymphenburg which pay tribute to the Old Munich.

For shoppers, the 'Funf Höfe', the Maximilianstrasse and the Neuhauserstrasse are all worthy areas to visit. 2015 will see the opening of the 'Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism', built on the site of the former Nazi headquarters, where visitors can gain an insight into Munich's role in Hitler's rise to power as well as the difficulties in dealing with the Nazi past after 1945.

24 hours in Munich

An early morning swim or sauna at Müller'sches Volksbad (Munich's oldest public baths) is an invigorating way to start to the day. Then, take a trip to the Viktualienmarkt to view the many stalls offering fresh produce and stop at a café or stall for a refreshing drink. At 11am, the glockenspiel on the New Town Hall in Marienplatz comes to life when the clock chimes the hour.

Visit Dallmayr food hall on your way to Maximilianstrasse for some serious window shopping - this is not a street to buy from if you are on a limited budget! A walk from there brings you to the English Garden where the beer garden near the Chinese tower is an ideal spot to stop for lunch. Take local transport to BMW Welt and explore the modern and futuristic worlds of motoring at the BMW Museum. In the evening, follow the well-known tourist route and eat at the Ratskeller followed by a night cap at the famous 'Hofbräuhaus'.
