Munich city breaks
A must for a weekend break
You’ll strike gold on a short break to former Olympic host city Munich from the Co-operative Travel!
Medieval Munich is a must for a weekend break, with museums and galleries galore to explore, along with one of the world’s largest public parks right at its heart.
Traditional German food, beer and wine are sure to be a central feature of any Munich short break, and they can be enjoyed in a variety of surroundings, from the outdoor cafes of Marienplatz, the trendy bistros of the Schwabing district, or among the locals at a picnic table in the Viktualienmarkt.
In fact the city boasts a staggering 6,000 bars, clubs and restaurants, and a wealth of prestigious shops on the Maximillianstrasse, so you won’t be short of places to splash out!
A Munich short break base near the Altstadt (Old Town) will put you close to most of the city’s major shops, theatres and historic attractions, while a short metro ride brings you to the Olympic Centre where there is an abundant choice of accommodation to suit all pockets.
munich museums and art galleries
Museums of art, motoring, science and even beer vie for your attention, and of course fans of the last of these will need no reminding that the time to visit is during the mammoth Oktoberfest, when the city dedicates itself to celebrating the brewer’s art in the best possible way – by drinking lots of the stuff!
Late-night entertainment in Munich is also packed with excitement, especially in the Schwabing neighbourhood, where the music and dancing keeps going well into the small hours.
For a complete change of pace, visit the medieval splendour of the Frauenkirche church and Residenz Palace, once home to Bavarian rulers, on your Munich city break. See exhibitions chronicling centuries of European art in the Alte Pinakothek or enjoy a classical concert at the National Theatre.
A Munich short break or weekend break offers you a staggering array of things to do and see in a friendly, vibrant atmosphere which will surely win you over.
