The original Munich City Guide





The original Munich City Guide

Which started in 1996 when I realised there was very little information available on the Internet, which was becoming more widely used to search for information. As an Englishman living in Munich, there was much to see and do. Kodak kindly presented me with a DC120 digital camera free of charge, so that images could be made available on the Munich City Guide web pages. This site shows well on iPhones, iPad, most Smartphones, and Tablets. If you have any problems, please send an email. Over the years a number of important changes have been made to ensure it is compatible with the changing standards.

Visiting the Munich Oktoberfest?

The Oktoberfest is well know as the biggest beer festival in the world, whilst this is a highlight in September, there is much more to the city. This introduction page is mainly text to ensure reasonable loading times, a lot more information to suit every taste is list in the menus. If you are planning to visit Munich at any time, make sure you have your hotel booked, it can be hard to find anything at short notice without paying a high price.

Many thanks for visiting the Munich Guide

There is much to see and do in the city at any time of the year. Shopping is great, with fine restaurants and an extensive public transport system. Thanks for your visit, hope you enjoy my collection of Munich information. There is a limit to the personal information that can be added, so if you need a published German or Munich Travel Guide, there is a selection in the top menu bar “Travel Books”. This updated version of a personal Munich City Guide will continue to have additions made on a regular basis. You may contribute ideas and links for this Munich travel guide, please use the form.

Can you help?

Munich is a lovely city and expanding all the time. The City Guide would like to add contributions from locals and visitors. We already have an article from a student and would like local information or visitor experiences to make this a better guide. No payment would be made but links to the originator could be provided. So please make this a useful guide now that the Munich City Guide is more than 20 years old.
