Munich is a wonderful, vibrant city. It has a rich history, and there’s plenty to see and do. And, more importantly, there’s plenty of unparalleled beer to drink… even at the airport, which is home to its own brewery.
However, it is also big. And, naturally, a bigger city means more accommodation options which can be overwhelming.
