When we say “best beer in the world”, the first thing that comes to mind is the Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. Steins of beer, drunken crowds, just friendly people hanging out. But there is more to Munich than just beer, and we are here to tell you all about it.
Europe’s Friendliest City
The very core of Munich breathes history. With its large parks, gardens, food, and beer halls, this German city will make anyone feel as if they were home.
The locals are always welcoming and willing to have company, so finding a place to eat or just spend your time is very easy.
And for that heartwarming experience there is a price.
Being a bit more expensive than Germany’s capitol, Berlin, hostel rooms in Munich go for $20-30, while hotels can go as far as $80 a night.
If you’re on a budget and avoiding high end restaurants, a meal at lunchtime won’t be more than $9. Don’t forget to try German sausages – they are only $3-4, but they are the trademark of the country.
Going All Out
This goes without saying – you must visit Oktoberfest. The two-week festival begins at the end of September, with thousands of people gathering to spend their autumn drinking beer and eating pretzels while dressed up in traditional Bavarian clothes.
Besides the legendary beer festival, another great thing to check out in Munich is the BMW Museum. It’s right next to BMW’s head office, and it is housing a plethora of exhibits about the history of the German automaker.
At the end of your day, have a trip through time at the baroque Nymphenburg Palace. This residence of Bavaria’s royalty is filled with luxurious interior and a massive banquet hall. Truly a sight to be seen.
