City with culture

Munich quite rightly numbers among the most significant cultural cities in Germany. The large Pinakotheken, with masterpieces from the Renaissance to the modern, and the Bavarian State Opera and Munich Philharmonic, enjoy a global reputation. Germany’s largest city palace – the Munich Residenz – is also impressive. It isn’t just huge; it also plays host to numerous picturesque courtyards and the Residenz museum with its mesmerising treasury. An additional highlight is Königsplatz, whose magnificent neoclassical buildings such as the Glyptothek and the Staatliche Antikensammlung (state collections of antiquities) mean it has also been dubbed the ‘Athens on the Isar’. Fans of sophisticated theatre get their money’s worth from the tradition-steeped stages of the Residenz Theatre and Kammerspiele.
