Munich (Mùnchen in German) is the capital city of Bavaria, the biggest federal state of Germany (by area and not by population). Within the city limits, Munich more than 1.3 million habitants, making it the third densely inhabited city in Germany. The urban part, which spreads out on the foothills of the Alps, has around 2.7 million residents.
Munich is renowned for its architecture, culture and the annual Oktoberfest beer celebration. Munich's cultural scene is the best in Germany, with its museums even considered by some to be of higher rank than Berlin's. Numerous visitors to Munich are absolutely stunned by the quality of the architecture. Although Munich's architecture was seriously ruined by allied bombing during World War II, a lot of its historic structures have been reconstructed and the city center seems as it did in the late 1800s.
Heinrich Heine wrote 150 years ago: "Munich nestles between art and beer like a village between hills". These words still describe the city very accurately. With the Oktoberfest and opera, Hofbräuhaus beer hall and Pinakothek art galleries, BMW and Bayern Munich, the city manages to mix old Bavarian folklore with zinging city life.
