Located in South Germany, near the border of Austria – you’ll find plenty to do in the gorgeous city of Munich. For wonderful weather and the opportunity to enjoy your trip to the full effect – book your city break for summer time when the city streets will be basked in sunshine and when you can enjoy all the outside activities alongside the indoor ones too.

So assuming you’ve got on your flight OK, and you’ve checked into your hotel, you’ll want to get out and explore this amazing city! There’s plenty to see and do here so you’ll want to get started as soon as possible – so as not to waste a single second!

–          Nymphenburg Palace is a splendid place to while away a summer’s afternoon. The palace is huge and you’ll get to explore both the inside and outside – so get ready! It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before and it’s almost like a set form a Hollywood movie. The gardens in the palace grounds are breath-taking too – so bring your camera.

–          Allianz Arena is a definite must-see for any football fan out there! Of course, the Germans are famous for their great football skills – so if you love the beautiful game then you’ll want to see this temple for football fans. If you can only visit during the day-time that’s great – but to fully enjoy this amazing stadium you’ll want to visit once the sun has gone down as the stadium lights up and creates a phenomenal view for all to enjoy.

–          Englischer Garten is a wonderful place in the city to relax and enjoy the sunshine (if the weather is good). These amazingly manicured gardens are beyond compare and you’ll adore them if you’ve ever been a gardening fan or a fan of beautiful surroundings. The gardens are similar to that you’d find in a traditional English manor house.

–          If you’re a history student you may want to learn about the country’s history, so the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial might be somewhere you want to visit. It is extremely sombre and very saddening – but it is part of the history – so many might find it a crucial thing to see and witness before leaving.

–          Germany has always been famous for the beer and the drinking culture – so you’d be foolish to miss a visit to Hofbräuhaus. It is famous for being an all year round drinking festival – so if you’re after a little bit of laughter and a lot of beer – this is indeed the place you’ll want to visit.

–          The Concert Hall, named Carl-orff-Saal has been critically acclaimed and praised for it’s performances and shows. It is one of Germany’s most iconic concert halls and one of the most culturally important too. There are also many restaurants and bars around the concert hall too – meaning you can make a whole day out of your visit and really treat yourself too. For evening performances you’ll want to dress up too – so use it as an excuse to put on your best clothes for the night!
