Munich is arguably best known today as the location of Oktoberfest, a legendary folk festival that attracts tourists from all over the world who don dirndls and lederhosen for raucous days of dancing and drinking beer. But this seductively wealthy metropolis is so much more than just blatant hedonism.
The magnificent Munich Residence is the largest city palace in Germany, and the lush English Garden is one of the greatest urban parks in the world. While the sister gallery Pinakothek der Moderne supports cutting-edge modern art, the renowned Alte Pinakothek museum houses a rare collection of Old Master paintings.
There are available cheap flights and affordable hotels for those travelers who are on budget.
