Munich

Munich

Munich is Germany's third largest city, located South in Bavaria, close to Switzerland. Home of the Oktoberfest, the Hofbräuhaus (Beer Hall), Bretzel (Pretzels), Weißwürste (white sausages) and Weissbier (Wheat Beer). A trip to Munich is not complete without beer and sausages, and if visiting in summer, try them all at one of 20 Beergardens. When you fly with Austrian Airlines to Munich, you can visit one of the world's most liveable cities. Take the S1 or S8 to downtown (Marienplatz or Hauptbahnhof). Highlights include the New Town Hall at Marienplatz (don't forget to watch the Glockenspiel storytale at 11 am) and the twin-tower Frauenkirche. A trip to the 'Deutsches Museum' is worthwhile, situated on an island in the Isar River. On a free evening, enjoy one of Munich's cultural attractions, such as a concert or theatre performance: Munich is home to many of the greatest musician and writers.

Olympia-Alm
Secretly and quietly: This beer garden oasis is located on the highest mountain of the city (564 m) and, luckily, is missed by most. No mass processing, no packed tables, and with Ayinger beer the - subjectively speaking - best wheat beer in Bavaria. The summit has a bizarre history: After the World War II, the people in Munich didn't know where to put all the debris and, orderly as they are, carried it all to this one spot, making a mountain: The later Olympia Alm was built.   During the construction of the area for the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, the workers met at a kiosk that evolved into a beer garden. But beware: In order to reach the source of a cool refreshment or a giant portion of spear ribs, you'll have to climb the mountain for at least 10 minutes. This won't make you fit for Olympia, yet it might be a start.

Gloria-Palast
Imagine you're going to the cinema! You're sitting down on the leather seat but only as soon as the back rest has reached the right position. Then you'll order your dinner directly to your seat and feast until the film starts. In the new Gloria Palace in Munich you'll feel like being in a film even before the film has started.   It took four months until the tradition-steeped cinema at the Stachus was completed in December 2012. After all there was a lot to renovate. The Grand Dame of German film, Ilse Kubaschewski, took great pains when she built it - but that's already sixty years ago. The Kinopolis Group therefore looked for a new concept and the first thing they did was cutting down the number of seats to half of the original number. Every guest now receives a welcome drink and a waiter is ready to take your orders in the cinema hall. They installed several separate boxes on the balcony with specially designed sofas and own footrests.

Advokat
The hotelier is an advocate of the theme hotel idea, but with a soft touch: In the Advokat the guest receives personal attention and his inner self is caressed. After the Admiral, which was his first, extremely successful boutique hotel in an old-fashioned, cosy style, he opened the Advokat in 1996 in the look of the sixties: polished travertine flooring, half-curtains at the wardrobe, and globe lamps. The creative class, in particular, appreciate this: Actors, theatre directors as well as people working in the fashion and publishing industry are regulars.   In 2006 the Sightsleeping®-jury of the Bavarian Marketing GmbH awarded the hotel's lobby a prize for its loving design. And Vogt won't skimp on endearing little gestures: for example the bedtime reading next to the bed (and not a bible!) or shining red apples on the pillow. Doubles start at 150,- euros a night.

Never heard of them? Then it's time to take a look. The colour bath alone is worth a visit!
