Useful information about the flight from Manchester to Munich
The city of Bayern, beer and BMW
Munich is a festival city with high-tech museums, beautiful parks and fabulous food and drink as well as sporting entertainment to match anywhere in Europe.
When is the best time to visit Munich?
Bavaria experiences quite cold, harsh winters, although Munich really stages an entertaining Christmas spectacle, so this is a good time to visit. Otherwise, summer is hard to beat, with temperatures regularly hitting 35°C, making the beer gardens even more inviting. Visit from 15th September to witness the famous Oktoberfest. October 3rd is another good time to visit, when the city holds celebrations of German reunification.
What everyone should know about Munich before they travel
Munich is famous for the festivities around Oktoberfest - which showcases its fantastic beer, as well as for the football club Bayern Munchen. However, the wealth of museums, fashion shows and art galleries are also major attractions. Check out the Alte Pinakothek and the Museum Brandhorst for a blend of modern art and Old Masters. Expect the cost of food to be lower than that in London. In fact, Munich is generally cheaper than the British capital.
