Munich

The Bavarian city, known for its annual Oktoberfest, has much more to offer than beer and pretzels. In summer people love to relax in the English Garden, while others improve their surfing skills in the Eisbach, a tributary of the Isar River. In the Alte Pinakothek, the art of the old masters can be admired, among which hangs the monumental oil painting The Battle of Alexander at Issus by Albrecht Altdorfer.
