For many, Munich is synonymous with the Oktoberfest. It is the world’s biggest folk festival, with seating for 100.000 people in its beer tents.
To the accompaniment of German folk bands, visitors sing, drink and make friends. The city has some great beer cellars and gardens, where you can enjoy the local Märzen and Dunkle beers all year round. Munich is also home to the automotive super-brand BMW. This is the other face of the city – the economic powerhouse. BMW has its own Museum, housed in a building that is itself a bold design statement. There is a wide range of cars, motorcycles, engines, aircraft and concept designs on display.
