About 150 years ago the German poet Heinrich Heine wrote “Munich nestles between art and beer like a village between hills". It still fits very well today. Munich is probably best known for its "Oktoberfest" where the beer flows like water. The celebration takes place every year in September and it is the world's largest folk festival. But the city offers more than just beer, and, at just a few kilometres from the Alps, is a great starting point for excursions in the area.
The city has over 50 theaters in which to enjoy a variety of plays and performances, and almost just as many museums including some of the largest art and technology museums in the country.
