Special Munich Travel Tips by Bettina Kraft
Why I like Munich: Munich is the capital city of the Free State Of Bavaria, Germany. It is located on the River Isar, north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is the third largest city in Germany, with approximately 1.35 million people living within the city limits and over 5 million living in the Munich Metropolitan Area. Munich is replete with cultural and other attractions, including the Frauenkirche, which is the most famous building in the city center and which serves as cathedral for the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising. There is also the Englischer Garten, close to the city center, which is one of the world's largest urban public parks. The Viktualienmarkt is Munich's most popular market for fresh food and cuisine and is not to be missed. Other highlights include the Nationaltheater, where several of Richard Wagner's operas premiered and is the home of the Bavarian State Opera, Deutsches Museum and the Bavarian State Orchestra. Finally, another impressive site is the Schloss Nymphenburg (Nymphenburg Palace), which is surrounded by an noteworthy park and is considered to be one of Europe's most beautiful royal residences.
These Munich travel tips are compiled by Bettina Kraft. Bettina likes to help visitors from all over the world to experience Germany in a different, more personal way, and make it easy for them to do so by providing detailed travel tips and advise.
Verified & Approved - Quality Munich Vacation Rentals you can Trust!
There is unfortunately a lot of scam and fraud on the Internet today and we read sad stories about families who booked a cheap apartment on a rental site only to find out later when they arrived that this apartment did not even exist! Therefore when you see our LLAG quality seal next to an apartment listing that means that we have verified and approved this particular apartment and you can be assured that this is a good choice when booking this one.
Of course, given our large selection of vacation rentals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland we cannot personally inspect every one of them. However, here is what we do to to ensure overall high quality and minimze the risk of fraud:
First, we are very selective and don't accept apartments of poor quality based on submitted description and photos.
We verify the owner's address, require a web site, and a valid phone number. With many of our property owners we talk with them over the phone on a daily basis and we have built up with them a strong business relationship over the years.
If we experience communication issues with a property owner, e.g. they respond too slowly to inquiries or customer requests, we investigate and possibly cancel our business relationship with that owner. Reason is if we are not able to successfully communicate with an owner, how can we expect that it should work out with a potential tenant?
We have a very high customer satisfaction rate (please read our customer testimonials.) However, if a customer reports issues we also immediately investigate. In case of incidents where we believe the quality and overall service of an apartment is no longer up to our standards we also remove that one from our site quickly.
Those quality measures helped us in the past to successfully protect our customers when booking a rental through us. Look for the LLAG quality seal that indicates that we have approved and verified that apartment.
