This travel guide to Munich, Germany is designed to help you plan your trip to one of Germany's most exciting cities.

Munich, the capital of Bavaria, is packed with sightseeing opportunities, museums, shopping, restaurants, beer halls, and other attractions for tourists.

Just as important, it's within two hours of the German Alps (see our Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Zugspitze articles) and Salzburg, Austria. Fascinating medieval towns such as Regensburg and Rothenburg ob der Tauber are also nearby.

With two major railroad stations and Munich International Airport (which has earned several "Best Airport in Europe" awards), Munich is a great place to begin or complete your trip to Germany.
