Village of a Million People
Often described as the city of laptops and lederhosen, Munich is an international center of business, engineering, research, and medicine that still maintains a rich cultural heritage and age-old traditions. While it's known for its beer houses, Munich also offers visitors art, culture, fine dining, and shopping. Post-World War II, the city rebuilt itself on a scale that few other places in Europe have been able to match. Many of its historic palaces, parks, and public squares were painstakingly renovated and restored. They now appear as though frozen in time centuries ago. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Munich and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
