Munich  Featured Image


'Munich loves you', so goes the motto of Bavaria's capital. On one hand this flourishing city is a quintessential bastion of German culture while on the other it is home to some of the nation's most unique customs. Bavaria as a whole stands out from the rest of Germany, particularly in terms of religious alignment, dialect and tradition. Munich is a synthesis of these deviations, which are visible today in its top attractions. Visit the BMW headquarters, Frauenkirche and more.
