Munich’s festive atmosphere isn’t only on display during the annual Oktoberfest celebration; this international city is known for its spirit of goodhearted coziness, or Gemütlichkeit in German. And while the old Bavarian traditions of parading folk musicians appear during festival periods, Munich is a thoroughly modern city filled with many more residents wearing business suits and designer fashion than traditional lederhosen.
Study in Munich and discover a city that’s framed by the snow-capped Alps and as picture-perfect as cities come. Sample fresh fruit and local meats from the daily open-air Viktualienmarkt, a major destination for foodies. Share a table and a stein of beer in one of the sprawling tents at the annual Oktoberfest celebration. Lose your voice cheering on Bayern Munich at the ultra-modern Allianz stadium. On the weekends go beyond the city’s borders to discover the mystical Black Forest, snowy Alpine peaks, or the pulsating energy of Berlin’s nightclubs.
