Knodel

Bavarian dishes tend to be rich and full of calories but, perfect to give your body some fuel and comfort. Be sure not to miss out on trying a few during your visit. Knodel, a Bavarian dumpling is made from old bread soaked in milk and seasoned then boiled or steamed. In some restaurants you can try Knodel as a side dish to your goulash, very popular with the locals. A visit to Germany would not be complete without trying some German sausage so we recommend trying the legendary Weisswurst (white sausage), one of the city's well-known dishes. A Pork and veal mix and eaten without the skin with sweet mustard and a pretzel and of course when in Munich it must be eaten accompanied by a beer and typically eaten for breakfast. A popular staple in Munich is the pretzel which are sold in every food market and anywhere you can buy a beer however, unlike Pretzels from other places the Pretzel is a soft bread with a chewy ring sprinkled with salt, the idea is that thanks to the salt it means you will be thirsty for more beer. Whilst you visit one of the many local restaurants you will find Käsespätzle on the menu a succulent dish of egg noodles with beautiful German cheese and caramelised onions baked in the oven and topped with parsley or chives, a highly recommended dish.

NS-Dokumentationszentrum

The NS-Dokumentationszentrum is dedicated to the history and consequences of the Nazi regime. It's the type of museum that might be missing from the top of your list, but once you're there, you will spend more time than you planned. Opened in May 2015 to the public, the museum is located at the site of the Nazi Party headquarters and near the Königsplatz, the square of many Nazi party rallies. The museum is designed to be a reminder of the past that many try to pretend didn't happen. The museum is home to Nazi documents and focuses on the history of anti-Semitism and racism in many different forms. The museum has a serious atmosphere, and many exhibits require reading text, so stools are provided for comfort. The museum reminds us of things we should not forget, making it a must-see during your stay.

Oktober fest

Oktoberfestan annual festival in Munich, is one of the most important events on the Munich calendar and is visited by over six million tourists annually. The best way to describe Oktoberfest is simply the Munich beer festival. However, it didn't start this way; it began as a wedding celebration more than 200 years ago when the Bavarian crown prince Ludwig was married in 1810. The festival has a great atmosphere and hosts a parade featuring beer wagons and floats with local costumes, amusement rides, dancing, and of course, sausages, as well as many other street foods. The festival lasts 16 days, starting in September and ending on October 3rd or the first Sunday of October, whichever is later. This is truly one of the best times to visit Munich. However, we recommend that all your travel plans be booked in advance as flights and accommodation get booked up very quickly.
