From museum hopping, fine dining, exclusive shopping, exciting river surfing, to experiencing the magic of the Christmas markets, Munich offers something for all luxury travellers, whatever your interests are. Spend some time in the beloved Kunstareal Art Quarter of the city, tour the Old Town, and marvel at the Bavarian Alps on a well-deserved luxury holiday in Munich.
Traditional heritage meets contemporary luxuries in Munich, showcasing attractions from historic architecture to the latest high-tech cars. Known as the 'city of art and beer', it's no wonder that Munich is home to the world-famous Oktoberfest. With a brewing culture that only grows more popular, beer has been a part of this city for at least seven centuries, and trying the vaunted craft beers here is all part of the Bavarian experience.
Amble through Munich's beautiful Altstadt (Old Town), and spend time in the Marienplatz, the city's most famous square and home to historical attractions like the Old and New Town Halls (Neues Rathaus and Altes Rathaus). Then explore the city's arty side; take a trip to Kunstareal, Munich's Art Quarter, with four hotspots to choose from including collections of Dutch masters and 1960s design. You'll also find some alternative must-see museums, ranging in subject matter from Oktoberfest to BMW cars.
This city is also a dream for shoppers, whether you're hoping to take advantage of the legendary Christmas markets, want to duck into boho boutiques, or are hoping to investigate the designer fashion houses, Munich has it all. Then, if you can, make your way south to see the magical Neuschwanstein Castle, a fairytale palace that perches on a rugged hill, and is surrounded by the snow-capped Bavarian Alps.
Spring is when Munich is blooming with lush flowers, and the festival of Frühlingsfest (a relaxed version of Oktoberfest) is held. Summer meanwhile is ideal for getting active outdoors; with options including hiking, biking and beer gardens.
Autumn often brings some of the best weather for Munich, as the days often hover between 14-19°C, and the foliage is an amazing spectrum of colours. Winter is packed with seasonal sports to choose from, whilst the Christmas markets and soft snowfall provide the magic.
No luxury getaway would be complete without delicious dining opportunities! International influences are available throughout Munich, with options ranging from Japanese and Peruvian, to Asian and Mediterranean.
Of course you'll have your choice of creative cocktails and spirits, along with top-rated wines and beers. Enjoy a fine-dining menu near attractions like the Old Botanical Garden, or sit down to a meal in the Old Town and watch the world go by. Try warming stews, delicious cakes, and celebrated regional beers.
