As the host of Oktoberfest, the world's largest drinking festival, Munich is most famous for its enormous beer gardens that draw in thousands of visitors each year. It's also perhaps the only place where drinking is encouraged as early in the day as possible -- it's the only way make sure you guarantee yourself a seat before the beer tents are overflowing with tourists. Visitors will also find plenty of other temptations beyond the delicious food and drink. With world-class museums, charming plazas or platzes, designer boutiques and sleek buildings mixed in with traditional Bavarian architecture, Munich is ideal for those who want a quintessential German experience (complete with polka music) as well as a trendy urban escape.
