Travel to Munich, Germany

A soulful city that loves to celebrate

Every year, spirited locals and excited travellers flock to Munich for Oktoberfest, the celebrated beer-drinking festival. Since the tradition began in the 1800’s, this city has become famous for it’s frothy beerhalls and Bavarian traditional dress. Strip away the festivities and you will find a quaint city with an intriguing historic centre. Relax on a bench at Marienplatz and observe the stunning skyline of the gothic Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall). Grab a pretzel and wash it down with a beer at the famous Hofbrauhaus. Or for a different angle venture out of the city to surrounding villages. Not far away is the fairy-tale castle of Neuschwastein, the inspiration to Walt Disney!
