Munich is a city that combines modern infrastructure with Bavarian hospitality and tradition. The historic buildings, streets and parks contrast with the modern BMW museum and Bayern München’s Allianz Arena stadium, a symbol of modern German architecture. The city also hosts the world famous Oktoberfest, attracting millions of visitors every year and transforming the streets of Munich into an enormous party.

Tips:

Do not leave Munich without eating a traditional Bavarian breakfast: the Weißwurstfrühstück consists of white sausage with sweet mustard, accompanied by a Weizen (wheat beer) and pretzel.

I recommend a visit to BMW Welt to all car fans. Here you will learn everything about the BMW brand and observe new BMW cars leaving the factory.

How to maximize your savings and spend less during your Germany vacation?

You can cut down your vacation costs significantly by following these simple rules:

  • Instead of eating out in restaurants most of the time your vacation rental apartment comes with a fully equipped kitchen. By preparing your breakfast and dinner yourself you can save lots of money, but you can also live a more authentic Germany vacation by trying out local foods and recipes. (see some German recipe suggestions.)
  • Use public transportation instead of a rental car. We provide you with links and details on how to get around using public transportation. Check out the corresponding Live Like a German travel guide for more details.
