"Cityspots Munich" takes you straight to the heart of the Bavarian capital, a grandiose royal city turned must-go metropolis. The famous two-week long Oktoberfest may have everyone thinking steins and sausage, but the city's manifold attractions are year-round, extending to art, fashion, opera, the Olympic Stadium and the onion domes of the Church of Our Lady. Munich highlights include: Hofbrauhaus beer hall, probably the world's most famous tavern; Gothic Church of Our Lady, a Munich landmark, offering amazing city and Alpine views; Olympic Stadium, used for sport, festivals and big-name concerts; Allianz Arena (Stadium of lights), built for the 2006 World Cup; Englischer Garten, Europe's largest urban park (bigger than Central Park in New York City); shopping in the old town centre (Kaufingerstrasse, Neuhauser Strasse, Marienplatz); and Kunstpark Ost (KPO) for post-midnight bars and clubs.
It is perfect for pleasure-seeking city breakers wanting to quickly pinpoint the city's most entertaining highlights and decide what to see and do in a limited time. It features clear maps to enable fast orientation and full-colour illustrated pages to pinpoint the very best in shopping, sightseeing, eating and drinking - plus great ideas for low-budget entertainment too. It spans a wide range of destinations, including those served by budget airlines; and contains practical listings to suit varied budgets and tastes.
Imaginative suggestions reveal each city's hidden gems. Compact format quickly locates the top must-see and do attractions. It features full-colour maps and photographs.
