When most people think of Munich, they think of the most famous beer festival in the world: Oktoberfest, which actually takes place in September and which locals imaginatively refer to as the Wiesn’ because it takes place on the Theresien Wiese. Beer might be central to the local culture–there are at least three other beer festivals during the year and the beer halls and beer gardens are worth a visit at any time.
But, the city has much more to offer from historic sights to modern art and architecture as well as cutting-edge science and technology. The most iconic sights of the Munich skyline illustrate this fascinating contrast of old and new: The neo-gothicNeues Rathaus (new town-hall), the medieval Frauenkirche (the Church of Our Lady)and the Olympic tower built-in 1968.
Munich is the home to world-class museums and galleries where you can see a brilliant display of various art from ancient sculpture at the Glyptothekto modern and sometimes Even Avant-gardist at the Haus der Kunst and the Pinakothek der Moderne. But, the art is not just confined to galleries–keep your eyes open while exploring the city streets and you’ll see many examples of public art from the fountains of the Viktualienmarktto modern sculptures dotted throughout the city as well as street art in the appropriately-named Street Art Gallery. And while it’s not unusual to see the locals in a traditional Bavarian dress.
Munich is also a city of cutting-edge science and technology: the Deutsches Museum has on the display of all the various scientific and technological discoveries that brought us the modern world as we know it. At the BMWMuseumyou’ll learn all there is to know about the famous brand.
But, above all Munich has a lot to offer for lovers of nature and the outdoors, such as us runners: the Englischer Garten, created in the 18th century, remains one of the largest urban parks in the world. It’s great for running, but it’s also not unusual to see people surfing there! The Olympic Park where the 1972 summer Olympics took place, hosts a winter running series from December to February and is also the start and finish for the Munich Marathon held every September.
And last but not least, the river Isar, which runs for 14km through the city, offers great trail running as well as bike riding opportunities. Go!
