Culture

With a fascinating history reflected in its heritage, the centre of Munich has many museums and monuments which unveil the past of the Bavarian capital. The historical mark of Nazi Germany forces a five km trip out of city, to visit the Dachau concentration camp.

The Frauenkirche church is one of the most emblematic monuments in town and is considered to be the church of women. From the top of its towers, you will get a spectacular view over the old town and, if the good weather allows it, it is possible to see the Alps. But the architectural culture of the buildings marks its presence wherever we go. The Palace of Nymphenburg, a summer residence for the governors of Bavaria, is another place that should not be missed, as well as the whole complex around it. At Marienplatz, a stay with no rush is recommended, to enjoy the traditional dance of the large wooden dolls which let themselves be seen when the chime rings. As far as museums are concerned, Munich is the best in terms of quantity and quality. There are over 20 museums in the metropolitan region of the city. Among these, the Neue Pinakothek stands out. This is a modern building shaped as an eight (8), built between 1975 and 1981. It is the largest German museum built after the war. Another location which deserves a visit is the Dachau concentration camp, where over 200,000 Jews have been imprisoned.
