Munich City Breaks
We at Co-operative Travel always know when to stock up on bargain city breaks to Munich; October, because that is when the world’s most famous beer festival, the Munich Oktoberfest, takes place. However, cheap Munich city breaks are becoming an increasingly popular option all year round, with travellers drawn by the fabulous gothic architecture, lively nightlife and jovial atmosphere.
The capital of Bavaria, Munich is a city that knows how to have fun. From the fairytale gothic architecture to the bustling food markets, weekend breaks in Munich offer fun to all ages. The annual Oktoberfest is the main event, with up to 6 million people having beer quaffing, table thumping, Oompah-band blowing fun. In December, visitors from near and far descend on the city for the Christmas Markets. Understandably last minute Munich city breaks will be in short supply on those occasions, so book well ahead if you want a hotel near the city centre.
Munich package city breaks take you to a scenic city surrounded by beautiful Bavarian lakes, forests and mountains. In an area rich with mediaeval, baroque, renaissance, and rococo architecture, all breaks in Munich should include an excursion to the fairytale castle of Neuschwanstein. Weekend breaks should also include the mediaeval inner city. From the cobbled square of Marienplatz you can visit Rathaus Town Hall; the 14th century Isar Gate (one of three remaining); the Palace of Justice; the12th century St Peters Church and Frauenkirche Cathedral. Munich city breaks should also include the 14th century Residenz palace complex, the baroque Schloss Nymphenburg, the mediaeval Alte Hof castle and any number of parks, palaces and mansions.
After the galleries and artworks of the Museum Quarter, we at The Co-operative Travel suggest visiting one of the bustling street markets for cheap souvenirs. Alternatively, shop and dine in the elegant Royal Avenue of Maximilianstrasse. Those on short breaks with the children can enjoy attractions like Munich Zoo, the Toy Museum, Poing Wildlife Park and the world's largest science museum. European city breaks in Munich offer something for everyone
