The most liveable city in the world according to the 2018 monocle quality of life survey


The Bavarian capital is a charming city at the foot of the Alps, known for the Oktoberfest and loved for its laid-back vibe.

Sightseeing tours frequently begin at "Marienplatz," the city's heart, with its imposing neo-gothic city hall, and take visitors to a plethora of baroque churches, early 19th-century neoclassical buildings, and the castle "Schloss Nymphenburg" with its lovely park.

In the summer, you can meet new people in a beer garden, relax in the "Englischer Garten," or visit one of the many lakes in the Munich area.

In the winter, the city is blanketed in snow. Sledging in "Olympia Park" or skiing in the nearby Alps are popular activities for students.

The popular "Christki" is not to be missed.
