Munich (German: München) is the capital city of Bavaria, the largest federal state of Germany (by area – not by population). Within the city limits, Munich has a population of more than 1.3 million, making it the third most populous city in Germany.

Munich is noted for its architecture and culture, and the annual Oktoberfest beer celebration is world famous. Munich’s cultural scene is second to none in Germany, with the museums even considered by some to outrank Berlin in quality. Many travelers to Munich are absolutely stunned by the quality of the architecture. Although it was heavily damaged by allied bombing during World War II, many of its historic buildings have been rebuilt and the city center appears mostly as it did in the late 1800s.
