Munich, or Munchen in German, is the capital city of Bavaria, lying at the foot of the German Alps. Famous as a high-tech city of culture, most notably the Munich Beer Festival, apartments in Munich are always in great demand. The green parks, beautiful Bavarian architecture and timeless beer gardens give Munich a sensational atmosphere, and as soon as you arrive at a Munich apartment, you will know instantly why the city is second only to the German capital as a tourist destination.
Whenever you visit Munich, there will always be a huge amount to do from a Munich apartment rental. There are sensational sights at almost every turn, from the landmark Cathedral of Our Lady to the Marienplatz, and music, arts and theatrical venues throughout the city provide huge entertainment on a nightly basis. Munich is one of Germany’s cultural hotspots, and after a show, the many timeless beer gardens and restaurants offer the perfect way to end a day of exploration.
There are always festivals throughout the Munich calendar, and almost every date of note is celebrated with a lively Munich beer festival throughout the many charming little beer gardens, but it is the main beer festival in Munich, Oktoberfest, that really attracts the crowds to apartments in Munich. The Munch Oktoberfest is the world’s most famous folk festival, celebrating all that it means to be from Munich and Bavaria. The Munich Oktoberfest starts after the colourful parade of the Wies’n’publicans on the third Saturday of September, and the first barrel is tapped by the Lord Mayor before the whole festival erupts into action for the next 16 days.
Tourism in Munich is particularly popular during December too. The Christmas markets are world famous, especially the huge Christmas Market of Marienplatz, whose illuminated church is nothing less than spectacular. You can easily fill your Munich apartment with a vast variety of gifts, food and drink at any time between the 1st day of advent and Christmas eve, and you shall certainly return home in the full Christmas spirit.
The whole of Upper Bavaria is at your feet from a holiday rental apartment in Munich. Littered with fairytale castles and deep, dark forests, Upper Bavaria is a beautiful place to escape for a day, enjoy the peace and sensational scenery and truly relax.
Munich sees huge variations in seasonal conditions, but with each season comes a new side to the city, each as encompassing and endearing as the last. The summer sees the city basking in bright sunshine, with daily temperatures soaring up towards 30?C, and wonderfully balmy evenings with overflowing beer gardens. Winter is cold though, and the crisp night air makes the Christmas markets an absolute delight to explore.
Munich Airport (MUC) or the Franz Josef Strauss International Airport is just 28km outside the city, and is a major transport hub. There are a huge range of direct flights to London from Munich, as well as services connecting Edinburgh (EDI), Belfast (BFS), Manchester (MAN) and Birmingham (BHX), making Munich apartments easily accessible from anywhere in the UK.
