Munich has it all!
The Bavarian capital offers you a variety of options for thrilling “on-site lessons” or for an eventful trip with your youth group. You have the opportunity to get to know and experience history, art, culture, technology, nature and leisure-time fun within short distances. Munich is a trendy and modern metropolis of international rank. Here you will find top-class museums of contemporary art and fascinating buildings designed by architects of international renown. Munich is a hightech location and city of science and research with elite universities. And a place where tradition is cultivated: As royal seat of the Bavarian kings the city has made history over the course of more than 850 years. Castles, monuments, museums and the Oktoberfest testify to its rich past.
The young scene is, of course, also at home on the Isar river. Along the pedestrian mall you can browse through the flagship stores of the hot labels. In the lively neighborhoods, such as in the Gärtnerplatz, Glockenbach and Westend quarters, Munich is hip. In the Münchner Kammerspiele or the Volkstheater you will discover dramatic art that is young and great fun. Enjoy the typical Munich way of life even though your budget may be small: a snack in a beer garden, picnic in the English Garden, festivals with free side programs, free open-air concerts in the Olympic Park, just to mention a few. On the following pages you will find more suggestions.
Munich has it all – are you convinced? … then we are looking forward to your visit!

History / Memorial Sites
Munich and National Socialism In the 1920s Hitler’s attempt to seize power was thwarted during the Munich Putsch at the Feldherrnhalle (Field Marshal’s Hall). After the takeover of power the NSDAP party center was established at Königsplatz square. In 1935 Munich was given the dubious honorary title “Capital of the Movement”. But some people, like the members of the White Rose at the university, were ready to risk their lives in support of the resistance movement… Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site In 1933 Germany’s first concentration camp was set up in Dachau. Today the venue accommodates the concentration camp memorial site with museum, archives and library. Guided tours for groups and school classes.

The English Garden The English Garden extends over 373 ha (922 acres) and is one of the largest urban parks in the world. Depending on the season the park presents numerous options for leisure-time activities. The beer gardens at the Chinese Tower, Seehaus, Hirschau and Aumeister are always worth a visit. The Monopteros offers a magnificent view of the city’s towers and the Japanese Teahouse where tea ceremonies take place regularly. * The park extends between Prinzregentenstrasse and Freimann Boat rental Kleinhesseloher See 80802 Munich, Phone: +49 (0) 89/338353 Hofgarten This urban oasis in the Renaissance style offers a splendid view of the adjacent Theatinerkirche. In all seasons locals and guests alike take refuge in this peaceful sanctuary to recover from the hectic downtown life. At present major attractions, apart from the monuments, are a beer garden, a coffeeshop as well as the boule players on the northern side of the garden. In the northeast of the Hofgarten a footpath leads visitors directly into the English Garden. * At Odeonsplatz next to the Residenz Old Botanical Garden In 1812 Goethe described “varieties of blossoms flourishing on grounds rich in art” in this garden. Later the legendary “Münchner Glaspalast” (Crystal Palace) was established here which was destroyed by a fire in 1931. This small park has ever since formed an oasis of peace and quiet in the midst of town where its inhabitants recover from the stress of urban life. * The small park is located between Elisenstrasse and Sophienstrasse Nymphenburg Park The history of this park has been linked to that of the palace for more than 300 years. In the course of time the small ornamental garden was extended into a strictly geometrical Baroque garden surrounded by a vast park including lakes and brooks. In winter it is popular with people playing the local version of curling and with ice skaters. * Tram 17 Schloss Nymphenburg
