Cheap flights to Munich

Munich – that German city full to bursting with Bavarian charm.

This jewel in Germany’s crown is one of its most popular tourist destinations as well as being one of its most sophisticated cultural centres. On the one side, it’s a city full of lofty works of art, stunning architecture and historical buildings, opera, theatre and more. While, on the other, it’s a city full of warmth and openness, with just a touch of that German fairytale village feeling.

The city’s motto is ‘München mag Dich’, or ‘Munich Likes You’, and it certainly does. You’ll stroll from museum to cathedral down adorable lanes and pass gingerbread-like half-timbered houses on the way. It’s the perfect mix. Add to that a strong contingent of trendy art-cafes full of life and conversation and, of course, plenty of beer gardens with perfect pilsners and a lively German gusto that has remained unchanged for years.

Shopping


Chilly temperatures are a great excuse to treat yourself to a new pair of gloves. And there can be few more tempting places than the city's own glove couturier, Röckl. The traditional shops are a sight to behold, with hundreds of pairs of gloves stored according to colour (1 Maffeistrasse, 8 Marienplatz or 1 Sendlinger Strasse, roeckl.com).


For top-end souvenirs or Christmas presents for those you really, really love, head to Maximilianstrasse. This boulevard is Munich's answer to the Champs-Elysees, with one gorgeous boutique next to another.


The Bavarian capital may be a long way from the coast, but that doesn't prevent locals from enjoying a beach culture. Head down to the banks of the River Isar, which runs through the city, and soak up some true Munich dolce vita with the crowds of bathers and sun worshippers.


Catch the latest English-language films at “Cinema". Every Friday, the cinema holds its sneak-preview night, screening a film that has not yet been officially released (31 Nymphenburger Strasse, cinema-muenchen.de).

Sightseeing


On 27-28 March,, Munich celebrates Starkbierzeit. The city's spring festival has crowds half as large and beer twice as strong as its autumn rival, Oktoberfest. bavaria.by

Key Areas


Munich is rightly renowned for its unique biergarten scene, which comes into its own in the summer months. Do as the locals do and pack yourself a picnic to enjoy with a litre of the city's finest brew. Hirschgarten is Europe's biggest biergarten, with seating for 8,000 and a paddock of deer to keep the kids entertained (1 Hirschgarten, hirschgarten.de).


From 25 April to 11 May, Munich hosts its annual spring festival, or Frühlingsfest. This little sister to the infamous Oktoberfest is less brash, but still boasts the beer tents, rides and buzzing atmosphere (muenchen.de/veranstaltungen/event/7816.html).

Day Trips


For some spectacular scenery a short hop from Munich, head south to Lake Chiem (Chiemsee). Trains leave the main station every half hour or so, and the journey takes just under an hour. If you time your visit for 28-30 November, or 5-7 December, you can also enjoy a meander around the magical Christmas market on the Fraueninsel, an island in the lake.
