Muenchen (Munich) on the Isar River is the capital of Bavaria and a major city in south central Germany. It attracts many tourists with its festivals (Oktoberfest), cultural landmarks, baroque and rococo buildings, elegant shopping opportunities, vivid nightlife, old breweries, great food and last, but not least, its castles and churches. Visit the baroque Nymphenburg Castle (1664), the Marienplatz with the city hall (Neues Rathaus), and the 15th-century Frauenkirche, a gothic brick cathedral. Go to the Maximilianeum (1874-1877), the home of the Bavarian parliament. Take a trip to the Hellabrunn Zoo, which is one of the largest zoological gardens in Germany. Relax in the English Garden, a large park with lake, a Chinese pagoda and an art gallery (Haus der Kunst). For sources of more detailed information, check out my booktips (travel guides).
