Munich is the capital of one of the oldest states in Europe so naturally its affinity with tradition runs deep. Yet, as well as having one foot in the old world, this southern German city has another firmly planted in the new. The Monocle Team will introduce you to their favourite family-run hotels and steer you towards the lively kitchens serving the best Bavarian classics. They’ll also map out the postwar modernist structures worth seeing and recommend where you should grab your culture fix. Of course, no tour of the Bavarian capital would be complete without a stopover (or two) at one of its jolly Biergärten. Hike up your lederhosen and get a move on in München.
The Monocle Travel Guide series reveals their favourite places in each city they cover, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Full of surprises and quirks, they also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks to get you away from the crowds and their favourite places to eat everything be it tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
