Germany at its very best: that's how many travelers feel about Munich. If you're wild about Oktoberfest, and love beautiful cities, Munich vacations cannot be beat! Come and experience all that this dynamic city has to offer.
It goes without saying that you'll eat and drink well in Munich. One venue not to miss is the Hofbrauhaus, which has been brewing artisan beers since the 1500s! Another must-see attraction is Olympiapark, built for the 1972 Summer Olympics. Strap on your skates and take a twirl around the ice rink. The Marienplatz (Munich's central square) is the heart of the city, and provides an outstanding view of City Hall (and its grand Glockenspiel), as well as quaint restaurants, street performers, shops, museums, and some outstanding people-watching territory. When you're searching for Munich hotel deals, try to score one in this area. Finally, no visit to Munich is complete without touring the castle, also known as the Nymphenburg Palace.
While the Marienplatz and other destinations are served by the S-Bahn and U-Bahn public transportation stations, you should still consider taking advantage of great deals on car rentals in Munich. Some of the most popular seasonal events are a bit off the beaten path, so a car can be handy. Not surprisingly, the top annual event here is the 16-day Oktoberfest Munich, which usually runs from mid-September through early October. The other big beer festival here is Starkbierzeit (also known as the "time of strong beer"), which takes place in March. Other big draws are Fasching (Germany's carnival season in January and February), the Munich Film Festival (Germany's largest summer film festival), and Christkindlmarkt (a Christmas gift market in December).
