6 Reasons to Visit Munich, Germany | Private Jet Charter
The capital of Germany’s southern state of Bavaria, Munich is probably best known for its Oktoberfest beer festival and its beer halls, such as the Hofbräuhaus. Other landmarks include the Marienplatz square with its Rathaus (town hall) and popular glockenspiel show. In addition to its historical legacy, Munich has a rich and varied cultural life.
Here are 6 reasons to hire a private jet to Munich.
Englischer Garten (English Garden)
The most popular outdoor space in Munich, the fabulous 417-hectare Englischer Garten is bigger than New York’s Central Park, and Hyde Park in London. The park is home to a Japanese teahouse as well as many restaurants. And you can work off lunch along one of the many jogging and cycling trails. Walk up the famous Monopteros hill for superb views across Munich. Even surfers are catered for here with the surf from the River Isar. Surfers at the Eisbachwelle wait for the ‘surf’ either side of a small bridge. Well worth a watch!
Peterskirche (St Peter’s Church)
This 11th-century cathedral, the city’s oldest remaining church, is beautifully situated on Peterbergl (Peter’s Hill) between Rindermarket and Marienplatz. Climb the spiral staircase to the top and look down over the rooftops of the Old Town and the Frauenkirche. The Baroque/Gothic/Romanesque architecture is stunning and fans of the macabre might also enjoy seeing the skeletal remains of St Mundita in one of the chapels.
Munich Christmas Market
Munich’s famous Christmas Market opens on November 24 until December 24. A showcase for Bavarian goods and culture, visitors can expect a festive atmosphere among the hundreds of stalls. You’ll find fresh chestnuts, fruitcake, mulled wine and herb liqueurs and many gift ideas. This year’s Christmas tree was donated to Munich by an elderly lady in memory of her deceased husband who first planted the tree. It will be used as a maypole after the festivities.
Even if you’re not a beer drinker, a visit to the HofbräuHaus is a must. The beer palace is a restaurant with various dining rooms, while the cross vault on the ground floor is the main ‘watering hole’. There’s a house band every day and for a more cultured visit, the Bräustüberl on the second floor has a more refined atmosphere. The outdoors courtyard is the perfect spot for sampling new ales under the chestnut trees.
New Town Hall (Rathaus)
The Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall) is a magnificent neo-Gothic building from the turn of the century which dominates the north side of Munich’s Marienplatz. The Glockenspiel in the tower balcony of the Neues Rathaus is also world famous and worth seeing. Since 1908, figurines representing stories from Munich’s history twirl on two levels daily at 11:00 a.m and 12:00 p.m. There are superb views of the city from the 255-ft rooftop.
Located in the west of Munich, this spectacular Baroque palace estate covering 200 hectares was formerly the summer residence of Bavarian rulers. It’s extensive Baroque landscaped gardens and Rococo interiors are a popular attraction throughout the year. Among the highlights are the former bedroom of King Ludwig II and the impressive banquet hall with ceiling frescoes by Johann Baptist Zimmermann.
