Beer, sausages, oompah music, high-tech, more beer, and lots of culture.
Where else in the world could you be but Munich? This is probably Germanys most interesting city, with its mix of old and new, north and south, efficiency and soul, museums and shops, fine dining and casual cafes. Did we mention beer? The natives drink an average of 300 quarts of beer per capita, which is twice as much suds as the rest of Germany, and makes them brew-champions of the world, as you will see in the numerous outdoor beer gardens filled at all hours with enthusiastic imbibers; but if you prefer wine or -- gulp -- soft drinks, there are many excellent local choices to pick from. Munich is a spectacular town to visit, with a great history that goes back nine hundred years. This unique city occupies a special cultural niche in the middle of Europe, mid-way in spirit between Germany and Italy, with elements of both nations joining together in a unique mix of order and passion. This capital of Bavaria offers the best of both worlds -- the efficiency of Germany with the easy-going lifestyle of southern Europe, served up in a medium-sized city that knows how to have a good time. Italy is just two hours south, and its influence can be seen everywhere in Munich, from the numerous pasta trattoria to the miles of monumental buildings that are faithful copies of Florence landmarks.
