What you should absolutely know about Munich

City highlights, food & drinks, expressions, weather, how to get there and how to get around

The city of Munich is home to old Gothic city structures and modern architecture alike. Most people know Munich for its yearly Oktoberfest celebration, which lasts 16 days and goes from the middle of September to the first weekend of October and features beer from all over Germany. If beer is not your thing, head to the promenade of Marienplatz for a great day of people watching. During your Munich day trips, skate on the Olympic ice rink, Olympiapark, or walk around the city’s many art galleries

See the popular glockenspiel show at the Gothic Neues Rathaus and tour St. Peter’s Church and the Nymphenburg Palace. Hang out at the BMW Museum or the Deutsches Museum. At the end of the day, enjoy beer at the famous Hofbrauhaus Munchen

Definitely try some of the best traditional foods including giant meaty pretzels, weisswurst (a thick sausage), Schweinhaxe (pig knuckle, often covered in gravy), and of course Schnitzel (breaded veal or pork). Indulge in a few steins of beer too

German is often described as harsh sounding, but can be pleasant. To say “Yes” or “No” in German, it is “Ja” and “Nein”. “Bitte” means “Please” or “Excuse me” and “Danke” means “Thank you”. To greet someone, say “Hallo” or “Guten tag”

Summer has low humidity and average temperatures in the 70s. The fall season is a bit chillier, with temperatures ranging from the 40s to 50s. German winters are cold, often dropping below 0 degrees. Spring warms up the landscape, with highs in the 60s

The best way to get from the airport to the city center is the S-­Bahn or suburban train and tickets average about 10/­12 Euros. Buses are an option too but for quick and cheap travel, the trains are always the best bet in Munich

There are several viable options of public transportation, which include: suburban trains (S­Bahn), underground trains (also known as U­Bahn), buses, trams, and shuttle cars. For avid bikers, there is more than 200 km of bike paths through the city
