Munich European Best Destinations

MUNICH

Munich is Germany´s leading tourist city. It is especially for foreign guests who love the Bavarian capital. Munich was founded in 1158 and was given the status of a town in 1214. In 1255 Munich became the residence of the Wittelsbach dynasty. Under King Ludwig I famous buildings were erected: the Glyptothek, the Old and New Pinakothek, the enlargening of the Royal Residence, the Feldherrnhalle, Siegestor (Triumphal Arch) etc. thus turning Munich into a major cultural centre in Europe. The Church of Our Lady, whose two onion-shaped domes dominate the skyline, is the unmistakeable landmark of Munich. The modern landmark of Munich is the tent roof of the Olympiapark. This 3-square kilometer landscaped park was built for the 20th Olympic Games that where held in Munich in 1972. Not far away is the BMW museum as well as the impressive "four-cylinder" building which houses the BMW headquarters. Another attraction of Munich is the Castle Nymphenburg. This vast Baroque palace is located in the western part of Munich. The building was once the summer resicence of the Bavarian Electors and is now a museum. Its elaborate interior and Ludwig I’s much-admired "Gallery of Beauties" have made it one of Munich´s most visited places.

 

A stone’s throw away the visitor finds amazing attractions such as Neuschwanstein Castle, Lake Chiemsee with Herrenchiemsee Palace or Germany’s highest mountain Zugspitze.
