Munich's Old Town historic district is home to beautiful architectural masterpieces such as the Munich Residenz Palace, Asamkirche Cathedral and Frauenkirche Cathedral, as well as the city's oldest pub, Augustiner-Brau.

Marienplatz, for example, is the square dating from the 12th century where the City Hall is located. The building, built in Gothic style, is world-renowned for its statues that move to ring the clock bell in the tower.

Of course, Oktoberfest couldn't be overlooked, as Munich is the birthplace of the biggest beer party in the world! So get ready for the month of September, when there are lots of typical clothes and music, as well as lots of beer to enjoy. ?

Speaking of beer, take the opportunity to visit the Biergarten Garden during the summer months, where Germans gather on their lawn to enjoy the mild weather with a drink in hand.

Other green areas worth visiting are the Hofgarten Park and the gardens of Nymphenburg Palace, as well as, of course, the Englisher Garten. The latter is the city's central park, which has a Chinese tower, Kleinhesseloher lake, the Schonfeldwiese naturist area and the famous Eisbach River, the only one in the world where you can surf in its waters.

And finally, be sure to visit the iconic Neuschwanstein Castle, famous for having inspired Walt Disney, and the beautiful Schleissheim Palace, which impresses with such beauty.
