Germany’s University City
Munich’s festive atmosphere is evidenced during the annual Oktoberfest celebration; but this international city is known for its provincial spirit of goodhearted coziness, or Gemütlichkeit, year round. Munich draws people from all walks of life. In addition to some 100,000 students, countless business people, art aficionados and ski-lovers call this city home. This diverse population blends to create a city where people are as comfortable taking in a symphony orchestra as they are relaxing with friends at a local Biergärten.
With the snow-capped Alps as its backdrop, Munich is as picture-perfect as cities come. Medieval architecture dating to its history as the Bavarian imperial capital blends with neo-gothic architecture of the 19th century and ultra-modern structures such the Allianz Arena, built for the 2006 World Cup. Head to the Alps for breathtaking skiing and hiking or hop on a train for the neighboring cities of Prague or Vienna, when the weekend comes. Bavarian traditions remain intact in Munich, despite it being a cosmopolitan city with funky boutiques and bookshops at every turn.
