Travel overnight with DB Autozug to the capital of Bavaria
In the “northernmost city in Italy” you can enjoy the exciting atmosphere of a lively metropolitan centre as well as the easygoing local mindset.
Welcome to Munich
It’s hard to say what’s most fascinating about Munich: the architecture, the inviting beer gardens and halls, the vibrant street cafés, the lively music and art scenes, or the world-renowned Oktoberfest and FC Bayern Munich football club. Find out for yourself – this city is always worth a trip!
Excursions in Munich
Munich offers something for everyone. Beneath the two domed towers of the Frauenkirche, you’ll find a microcosm of lifestyle, culture and enjoyment. On your trip to the city, be sure to take in the natural scenery of the English Garden, with its beer gardens and the surfers on the Eisbach River. After a visit to one of the city’s numerous museums, take a stroll down the Leopoldstrasse in Schwabing. The lakes in the surrounding areas are perfect for day trips and are just a short distance from the city centre. The city’s cultural attractions are worth a visit in any season, including the Alte Pinakothek and the Neue Pinakothek, the Deutsches Museum, the Viktualienmarkt, the Residenz and Nymphenburg Palace. You can also choose from a wide range of entertainment options, such as the Allianz Arena, BMW Welt, the Hard Rock Cafe and the Bavaria Filmstadt.
Culinary highlights in Munich
One of the city’s most famous specialties is the local Weisswurst sausage, which is traditionally eaten without the skin, along with soft pretzels, sweet mustard and wheat beer – before noon. The city is also legendary for its beers, which taste best in the many inviting beer gardens, or in famous beer halls such as the Hofbräuhaus and the Augustinerkeller. Leberkäs, a local meat specialty, is yet another dish that shouldn’t be missed, along with Zwetschgenpavesen, a traditional dessert. Of course, in this metropolitan centre you’ll also find first-rate establishments featuring fine cuisine, such as Käfer’s, as well as a wide variety of international dining options. And the most convenient way to travel there is with DB Autozug!
