The capital of Bavaria, Munich is a city that knows how to have fun. From the fairy-tale gothic architecture to the bustling food markets, weekend breaks in Munich offer fun for people of all ages.

Weekend breaks should also include the medieval 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.
