Munich is not called the “village of millions” for nothing: Here you will always meet someone you know whether you’re out shopping, exploring the English Garden, or out clubbing at night. Life takes place mainly outside, in street cafés, on sun terraces. Or on a bike – the city has almost 500 kilometres of bike routes. Running fans also get their money’s worth, because where is there a more beautiful jog than along the Isar?
The people of Munich love their “Wiesn” as much as the beer gardens: When it’s finally “O’zapft is!” at the end of September, there’s no stopping them. They mingle with the tourists and celebrate the Oktoberfest with them – true Bavarian joie de vivre.
