Munich

Munich

Germany's most beautiful city is a thriving centre for art and culture with fine museums and galleries and a wonderful opera house. Legendary Bavarian hospitality can be enjoyed in the many excellent restaurants and beer halls. Marienplatz, where the main pedestrianised streets converge, is the undisputed centre of the city.

Many of the city's main attractions are in the immediate vicinity, so sightseeing can easily be done on foot or by hopping on and off trams.

Worth seeing are the 16th-century Michaelskirche, with its imposing barrel-vaulted interior, and the Asamkirche, considered a masterpiece of south German Rococo architecture. The oldest part of the city is the area to the east of Marienplatz, including the Alter Hof (the original royal residence) and the world-famous Hofbräuhaus. The Residenz complex lies to the north.

The wide boulevard and grand palatial architecture of Ludwigstrasse and Leopoldstrasse stretches north of Odeonsplatz to the Siegestor.

Munich
The 2020/21 theme is "Point of Inflection".

In his Sonnets to Orpheus, Rainer Maria Rilke describes art as movement, as a process that often ends with the beginning and begins with the end," explains Nikolaus Bachler. Following thirteen years as the Staatsoper’s General Manager, these sentiments conjure up not just the end, but rather and in particular also the ‘point of inflection’. At the core of the season are eleven premieres, including three world premieres and four pieces that celebrated their world premieres in Munich. ...Show All
