Interesting facts about Munich

BOOK YOUR SEATS TO A COSMOPOLITAN CITY WITH A BIG HEART

A perfect example of a European city that perfectly combines the old and new, Munich has so much more to offer than just the Oktoberfest. Classical architecture, lively entertainment and delicious dining, there is something for absolutely everyone. Let the Finnair travel guide to Munich expose the best to see and do in Bavaria’s capital.

SIGHTS IN MUNICH

It’s impossible to not notice the beautiful buildings standing for centuries throughout the city. Starting at Marienplatz, look up to watch the Glockenspiel at the New City Hall. Nearby are the equally impressive Residenz with its ornate passageways and the iconic Frauenkirche at almost 100 metres tall. Stop for a beer at the world-famous Hofbräuhauswhere cheerful singing is accompanied by huge mugs of local beer. For a break, head to the Englischer Garten, local residents’ favourite green refuge in this big city. Moving outwards we find BMW World, a shrine to all things from this iconic car manufacturer. Nearby is Olympiapark, site of the 1972 Olympics which is now put to great use by sporty locals. If you need to soak up some culture, you’re spoilt for choice in Munich with museums like the technical Deutsches Museum, the fabulous Pinakothek museums, Glyptothek with its ancient sculptures and Beer- and Oktoberfestmuseum.

  • Chiemsee and Starnberger See – Beautiful lakes within easy reach of Munich offering scenic retreats from the hustle and bustle of town. A favourite of locals and those who enjoy the water.
  • Garmisch-­Partenkirchen – An hour and a half by train sits this pretty town at the base of Germany’s tallest peak. Skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer, it’s a fantastic choice for an active trip.

GERMAN FOOD & DRINK IN MUNICH

Bavarian food inspires thoughts of hearty meals and lots of it and if that’s what you seek in Munich, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Beer halls – Munich institutions, these large boisterous halls are filled with people enjoying both the food, beer and company. Often with histories dating back hundreds of years there are many to choose from, serving hearty traditional German cuisine.
  • Beer gardens – A hot summer day in Munich is not complete without a visit to one of the many beer gardens scattered throughout the city. Try one of the huge variety of local brews and soak up the atmosphere under a chestnut tree.

TRANSPORT IN MUNICH

Like most things German, Munich’s public transportation system is very efficient. Covering all major sights of interest it is the best choice for the visitor. Day tickets and the 10­ride Streifenkarte are available and are the best bet if you’re staying multiple days. 

  • Tram – Quick and easy, trams move about between most parts of the inner city at high frequency. They can take you to most sights of interest. 
  • U­Bahn and S­Bahn – Faster than the tram for crossing longer distances, the U­Bahn and S­Bahn run below and above ground respectively. Take the underground if you intend to stay in the inner city area and switch to the S-Bahn for longer rides into the suburbs.
