Holidays to Munich
In Munich, it’s the mix that makes the message. Old meets new, past meets present and future, the modern blends harmoniously with the traditional, bits and bytes with beer, business and leisure. For the visitor, there is never any shortage of sights to see or activities to engage in.
When asked where they would prefer to live, most Germans say Munich. The reason is simple: a magic combination of a vigorous economy and top-notch leisure time activities and outstanding cultural offerings.
The city has a wide array of museums, notably the three Pinakothek art museums. For a closer encounter with automobiles present and past, however, Munich-based BMW automaker recently opened the BMW Welt, which complements the company’s state-of-the art museum.
To find out more about Munich itself, the place to go is the City Museum (Stadtmuseum), where the permanent exhibition “Typically Munich” tells the history of the city through a host of quirky and revealing exhibits. For an even closer encounter with history, there is the mighty Residenz. Its richly decorated rooms tell the story of centuries of rule by the Wittelsbachs.
Last but not least Munich is a shopper’s paradise, with fine fashions, designer outlets, venerable department stores, antique shops and excellent bookstores.
