Learn German in Munich and experience a fascinating city! This beautiful city is located at the foot of the Alps, in the Bavarian region of southern Germany. The very heart of the city is the impressive Marienplatz which is home to the Neogothic Rathaus (city hall) and only four minutes’ walk from our Munich (Historic Centre) school. This is the perfect base to explore Munich from, as the Marienplatz is also the location of one of Munich’s largest U-Bahn stations.
Munich is a city of architecture, culture, festivals, concerts, café culture and biergartens, always with plenty to do and see. Many people will recognise the famous Oktoberfest, the world’s largest beer festival which has been attracting visitors to Munich, hoping to sample beer and other culinary delicacies every October since 1810.
Discover the more contemporary side of Munich with shopping in the luxury boutiques around Maximilianstrasse, a visit to the BMW Museum, or the Olympic Park which was built for the 1972 Olympics, but today is a popular venue for music concerts and festivals.
If you are looking for a more peaceful side to Munich, local people will tell you that one of the prettiest places to visit is the Englischer Gardens, an urban park in the very city centre that is even larger than New York’s Central Park!SPECIAL OFFER: Free excursions in Munich
