Whether you pop by for the yearly beer festival of Oktoberfest or are dropping in for a weekend in town, fall in love with Munich’s folksy tradition, outstanding architecture and modern spirit, a city whose main ambition lies in surpassing the enthusiasm of even Berlin. Located on the River Isar in Upper Bavaria’s plain land and just north of the Alps, Munich is the third largest city in Germany. The capital of Bavaria in Germany, the city boasts a modest population of 1.3 million people. Spelled München in German, its name originally comes from the word meaning monks, as Munich was originally founded by Benedictine monks. Due to the influence of the Alps, the climate in Munich is rather continental with frequent changes with the coming of winds from the mountain slopes. airBaltic flights to Munich land at Franz Josef Strauss Airport some 28 Km to the north east of the city, providing regular services to European destinations and other continents.
Although Müncheners speak Hochdeutsch, or High German, most traditionally the population has spoken the local dialect of Münchener Bayrisch, which may still be heard regularly in the city. For travel purposes, most tourist areas will gladly and easily communicate with you in English. The young generation is generally very good at English, as they have a firmer interest in and grasp of the language. Remember to politely ask, however, Sprechen Sie Englisch? before asking for directions.
