Village of a Million People

Often described as the city of laptops and lederhosen, Munich is an international center of business, engineering, research, and medicine that still maintains a rich cultural heritage and age-old traditions.
Popular historic sites such as Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site and Schloss Hohenschwangau are in your itinerary. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Nymphenburg Palace and Munich Residenz. Go for a jaunt from Munich to Garmisch-Partenkirchen to see Zugspitze about 1h 40 min away. And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Peter's Church, browse the exhibits of Stuck Villa (Jugendstil Museum), see the interesting displays at Marstallmuseum, and pause for some serene contemplation at Herz-Jesu-Kirche.
