Munich Hotels offer impressive accommodations in a city nicknamed “Toytown” and “Village of a Million People”. Known for its beer gardens, its cafes, its lederhosen, its dirndl, its cathedrals, its palaces, its museums, its convention centers, its book publishing and printing, its television production, its natural surroundings and its world-renowned football club, Munich is located in southeast Germany on the River Isar, 80 miles north of some outstanding Bavarian Alps skiing and hiking destinations. Oktoberfest, the world’s largest Volksfest, is held annually from mid or late September to the first Sunday in October, and draws a crowd of over 6 million people annually. A German word to know at this event is “Prost”, or “cheers”. Indeed, Munich hotels are some of the finest in all of Bavaria. Before we get you to Munich hotels, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.
Munich, Bavaria’s capital and most populous city, has a population of over 1.5 million people. The city’s name derives from the Middle High German term meaning “by the monks”, a reference to monks of the Benedictine order who ran a monastery in what would become the Old Town of Munich. Munich became the capital of Bavaria circa 1506. In 1589, the Hofbräuhaus was built for brewing brown beer. About one-third of the population died from bubonic plague in 1634. In 1806, the city became the capital of the new Kingdom of Bavaria. Oktoberfest, Munich’s annual Beer Festival, originated from a royal wedding in October 1810. Starting in the year 1826, many of the city’s finest buildings were constructed under the first three Bavarian kings, Ludwig I, Ludwig II and Otto, who never actively ruled due to severe mental illness. Richard Wagner‘s tragic love story Tristan und Isolde premiered in Munich on June 10th, 1865. Political unrest following World War I led Adolph Hitler and his supporters to stage the Beer Hall Putsch, an attempt to seize power in Munich, which led to Hitler’s eventual imprisonment and his writing of Mein Kampf while imprisoned. Munich became an important city for the Nazi Party after 1933, and the site of the first concentration camp at Dachau, 9.9 miles north-west of the city. After World War II, US occupation in 1945 saw to a meticulous rebuilding plan, preserving the city’s pre-war street grid. Since then, Munich’s residents have come to enjoy a high quality of life.
Today, Munich’s city council consists of 13 different political groups, with the highest percentage of seats belonging to the center-left Alliance 90/The Greens party. The city’s climate is considered oceanic, with average July high temperatures at around 76 degrees Fahrenheit, and average January highs at around 38 degrees. During Oktoberfest, which is held at Theresienwiese, highs average around 60 degrees. One of the world’s most successful football clubs is Bayern Munich, which plays at Allianz Arena on the city’s north side. The man-made Eisbach wave, located at the Englischer Garten‘s southern edge, is one of the best river surfing spots in the world. Other major points of interest include Marienplatz, Nymphenburg Palace, BMW Welt, Feldherrnhalle, Frauenkirche, Ludwigstraße, BMW Headquarters, Deutsches Museum, Bavarian National Museum, Glyptothek, National Theatre, Gasteig, Olympiapark, Alte Utting, Bahnwärter Thiel and Blitz Club. Popular foods include Weißwürste, or white veal sausage, Haxen, which is braised pork knuckle, Leberkäse, a loaf-formed sausage, Obazda, a cheese spread, Brezeln, or pretzel, Käsespätzle, a type of mac and cheese, Schnitzel and Bratwurst. Munich s beers include Weissbier, or wheat beer, Helles, which is a pale lager, Dunkles, which is a dark beer, Starkbier, which has a higher alcohol content, and Märzen, which is found at Oktoberfest and has a higher alcohol content than regular Helles. Now that we have some background information, it’s time for Munich hotels that will help make for an unforgettable experience.
