The golden tweet of Germany

About Germany


When in Munich, wander around the town centre to see the unmistakable landmarks: Marienplatz, Frauenkirche, the Hofbrauhaus and the Rezidenz Palace. The beautiful Englischer Garten park shouldn’t be missed either, and make sure you see the Eisbach surfers in action there. Art fans are spoilt for choice - the best museums in town include the three Pinakothek art museums and the Bavarian National Museum.

Visit the most famous tavern in the world, the Hofbräuhaus beer hall. Every day it serves around 10,000 litres of beer. The Gothic Church of Our Lady is the definitive Munich landmark; the design is fascinating as are the views from the top of the towers. The Renaissance Hofgarten Palace Garden offers great views of the Theatinerkirche church. Wander through the 125 arches that make up the arcaded walkways and check out the timetable for upcoming concerts and festivals

Munich is the best place to be to have a taste of the Bavarian cuisine, which is tasty and particularly filling. Drop in a Gaststatten (restaurant), and order a local speciality such as Weisswurst, a boiled white veal sausage usually served with a pretzel or bread and sweet mustard or try Leberkase, a spicy meatloaf served in very thick slices. Marzipan is a must in Munich, as is the Bavarian traditional biscuit Lebkuchen, and make sure you stock up on Stollen for the festive period. Beer is best drank in a garden for full flavour, and preferably alongside a knuckle of pork and some sauerkraut, a cabbage dish.

Exclusive boutiques line the streets of Maximilianstrasse and Theatinerstrasse; Head to the department stores and international chains of Neuhauserstrasse and Kaufingerstrasse for Lederhosen, woodcarvings and beer steins for grateful friends.

    "I was not able to take this train as my passage from Budapest to Munich was halted and terminated at Salzburg Austria "

  • Very beautiful trip |
    "It was a beautiful trip - traveling in first class in a compartment with one other couple from Germany - we had a very nice conversation along the way and the scenery was absolutely stunning - it was clear and sunny the entire trip - except when it got later and then it was clear and you could see the stars. Just beautiful. Only complaint was that the food car was not adequately staffed, did not have enough food, and the service was so slow that we eventually left - after the staff told us they could not take any more orders. It was a good thing we did bring a little lunch - however, we could not even get a cup of coffee they were so overwhelmed. Maybe compartment service for the people traveling in first class - or additional staff....not sure. "

  • Enjoyable trip by train |
    "Initially I used my 2nd calss railpass to buy a tciket from Munich Hbf to Paris Est, but when I collected the ticket I discovered that due to mstake the ticket was for 1st class seat. Went to raileurope office and informed tham of the error. Told by staff that the ticket was invalid, and that I needed to buy another ticket, and then to request for refund of the first ticket. I thus bought a new ticket. returned the first ticket and asked for its refund. But days later, told by raileurope that refund was refused. Found this very unjkust, unfair and unreasonable to a genuine and honest customer, though this experience did not disturb my trip.. "

    "Thank you so much for an really enjoyable adventure. Seeing that this was our first time traveling by train in Europa it was a great experience. Traveling by City Night Line gave us time to relax and sleep well. Much better than flying. "
