Don't Miss These Sights When Visiting Munich

Munich is beautiful! This is one of the reasons why I always recommend Munich to all my friends who are visiting Germany. Munich is one of my favourite cities in Germany not only because it is the capital of the state of Bavaria but simply because it is truly a lovely city. It is noted for its architecture and culture and most of all for hosting the world's most famous and largest festival, the Oktoberfest.

Munich has these six amazing attractions to visit:

1. Nymphenburg Palace

I visited this Palace twice already. If I have the chance to go there again, I would still love to. This palace is located in the heart of Munich. Many of the palace showrooms still have their original baroque decoration. The gardens around the palace are a perfect place for an afternoon walk or a picnic.

2. Viktualien Market

This is Munich's largest outdoor market place. This market has a variety of foods from many different countries. Different wines, breads, cheeses, and beers are all sold here. Even if you're not on a major shopping spree this is still a great place to stroll through and grab a bite to eat.

3. English Garden

This is one of the most breathtaking city parks in Munich, Germany. This park was created in 1789 by Sir Benjamin Thomas. Today you will find many people playing Frisbee and football in the park. Horseback riding and sunbathing nude by the horse track are two other favorite activities to do in the English Garden.

4. Olympiaturm (Olympic Tower)

This amazing tower stands 291 meters high. The observation platform, which is located at 191 meters in the air, gives visitors a breathtaking view of Munich. There is also a revolving restaurant where visitors can enjoy a meal and the views of the city at the same time.

Our visit to the Olympiapark and seeing the Olympic Tower last 2009 was a wonderful feeling for me. Sad to say, we don't have the chance to go up to the tower. Hopefully in our next visit.

5. Deutsches Museum

With forty-five exhibits, this is one of the largest science museums in the world. The museum is located on an island in the beautiful Isar River. Priceless artifacts include the first automobile and the first diesel engine. One of the most popular attractions at the museum is the high voltage display that actually produces electricity.

6. Pinakothek der Moderne

If you like visual arts then you will definitely want to visit this large museum dedicated to 19th and 20th century visual arts. The collections at this museum range from the industrial revolution up to today's modern computer culture.

To all international guests and tourists who are trying to find cheap Flights to Germany, I am quite sure you can find a lot  online. There are a lot of discount airlines that are serving affordable flights in most airports in Germany like Ryanair, Easyjet, Virgin Atlantic and many more.

For sure you will going to have a wonderful and memorable stay in Bavarian's lovely capital. Have fun!
