Have a wonderful holiday in Germany by visiting Munich. Located in the south of Germany in the Bundesland of Bavaria, Munich has a lot of culture to experience, everything from the local cuisine such as white sausage and pretzels, to the beer and as it is the third biggest city after Berlin and Hamburg, you won’t run out of things to see and do quickly! After all, one of the world's favourite and famous beer festivals, Oktoberfest, takes place in Munich every year from late September till mid October. This beer festival is well worth a visit, since it attracts millions of tourists every year. Whilst staying in your holiday home in Munich, try the different types of beer such as Augustiner and Paulaner. If you book a Munich holiday apartment when Oktoberfest isn't on but still wish to sample the German beer, the Hofbräuhaus in the city centre is one of the most famous beer drinking houses in Munich with a live music band.

Stay in a holiday home in Munich and explore the heart of Bavaria
Whilst staying in your Munich holiday apartment, if you are wanting to explore, there are plenty of museums to visit, such as the Deutsches Museum or the BMW museum, or why not take a stroll around the city centre and look around the shops. The Englischer Garten is well worth a visit in Summer, a great place to have a picnic. Among the landmarks of Münich include the imposing Marienplatz, the 18th century Nyphenburg Palace which combines a mixture of baroque and neoclassical features and last but not least, Neuschwanstein Castle which has become an icon not just of the region but of Germany.
The northern city of Hannover is also a central hub for great shops and a relaxing city break. If you prefer some countryside and landscape after your city stay, then why not look at cottages in the Black Forest for some wonderful German scenery or maybe visit Rhineland-Palatinate and check out some of the local vineyards here that envy those in Bordeaux.
