The 12 best things to do in Munich

The 12 best things to do in Munich

Whether you’re here for Oktoberfest or not, Munich packs a punch. This city has everything you need for a city break, and we’d say three days is enough to really get stuck in. And sure, it’s best known for the festival, but there’s plenty more to explore while you’re here.  Discover an Olympic park, fantastic museums and even where to drink beer at breakfast (yes, really). Oh, and make sure to keep your eyes peeled when you’re wandering the streets; you’ll spot grand buildings, elegant facades, street art and contemporary architecture, the result of reconstruction following the devastation of World War II. Here are the best things to do in Munich right now.  RECOMMENDED:📍 Our guide to where to stay in Munich🍻 The best places to drink beer in Munich🍴 The best restaurants in Munich 🏠 The best Airbnbs in Munich This guide was last updated by Kate Mann, a writer based in Munich.

The best places to visit in the Austrian Alps

The best places to visit in the Austrian Alps

Sweeping across much of Austria from west to east, this impressive section of Europe’s mighty mountains stops just short of Vienna. There are ranges with rugged granite outcrops, spectacular glaciers and summits over 3000m (9,843 feet), as well as those with lush valleys and gentler terrain. In the colder months, snowy slopes make Austria a hub for winter sports, while summer appeals to hikers and bikers – or those who just want to twirl in a meadow à la Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. Each to their own. Here are the best places to visit in the Austrian Alps, according to destination expert Kate Mann. Kate Mann is a travel writer who has travelled extensively in Austria.
