The Olympic Park

Home to the 1972 Summer Olympics, Munich's spectacular Olympic Park covers an area of some 2.7 million square meters on the Oberwiesenfeld, a former training ground for the Royal Bavarian army. Now a major recreational center, this huge facility hosts a variety of major concerts and events, including the Tollwood Festival, held twice per year (in summer and winter) and attracting upwards of one-and-a-half million visitors. A number of fun family activities have been introduced over the years, including a stadium roof climb, zip lining, and behind-the-scenes tours showcasing the facility's splendid architecture and design. Also of interest is the Olympic Tower, a 290-meter-high television tower built in 1968 that was renamed in honor of the Games. Of its two Körbe (pods), it's the Aussichtskorb you'll want to visit due to its fine revolving restaurant and viewing platforms offering breathtaking views over the city.

The Bavaria Statue and the Hall of Fame

The colossal 18-meter-high statue of Bavaria, a female figure in the old German style, was modeled by the Munich artist Ludwig Schwanthaler and cast in bronze by Ferdinand von Miller in 1850. Designed to display the state's increased importance in Europe, Bavaria stands clad in a long garment and a bearskin, her raised left hand holding a garland of oak leaves, her right hand a sword, while at her side sits a lion, the heraldic animal of Bavaria. A flight of 126 steps leads up inside the statue to the head, from which there is an extensive view over the city. Weighing in excess of 792 kilograms, it holds the world record as the largest bronze figure ever cast. Behind the statue is the equally impressive Hall of Fame (Ruhmeshalle), housing numerous busts of famous Bavarians, including its kings and electors.

Nymphenburg Palace

Nymphenburg, a large white and gray Baroque palace with yellow ornamentation and red tiled roofs, was originally the summer residence of the Wittelsbach Electors in the 17th century. Extending more than 600 meters from wing to wing, this vast palace is surrounded on each side by the Nymphenburg Canal, which splits as it passes around the main buildings before reuniting again in a fountain-adorned pool in front of the principal façade.

Your first stop should be the Central Pavilion, a cube-shaped palace in the style of an Italian villa completed in 1674 and home to the lavishly decorated three-story Stone Hall (Steinerner Saal) and a number of private chambers with fine furnishings and artwork. Also of note is the Palace Chapel (Kapellenstock) with its wonderfully expressive ceiling painting illustrating the life of Mary Magdalene, and the Marstallmuseum in the former Court Stables with its beautiful state coaches. Be sure to visit the Amalienburg, a palatial hunting lodge known for its famous Hall of Mirrors. The magnificent 17th-century Nymphenburg Park is also well worth a visit. Highlights of this lovely walled garden include its many vases and marble statues of Greek gods, a large fountain, and a number of old hothouses, including the Palm House, home to Germany's first hot-water heating system. The maze with its Heckentheater (Hedge Theater) is another feature of the park not to be missed.

Hellabrunn Zoo

Spread across some 89 acres, Hellabrunn Zoo (Tierpark Hellabrunn) - ranked the fourth best zoo in Europe in 2013 - is one of the most popular attractions in Bavaria. Laid out in 1911, it was the first zoo in the world to have animals grouped according to where they came from. Today, more than 19,000 animals from 757 species are held in open enclosures meant to replicate the conditions of the wild, with animals that normally share habitats kept together wherever possible. Popular features include the Elephant House (now a listed building), the enormous 5,000 square meter free-flight aviary, the Polarium, and ape houses. In an area adjacent to the Isar River that's been designated a conservation area, the zoo has many delightful footpaths, playgrounds, and picnic spots.

The Theatine Church of St. Cajetan

The Theatine Church of St. Cajetan (Theatinerkirche St. Kajetan), a catholic basilica built in the style of the Italian High Baroque, is one of Munich's finest churches and, together with the Frauenkirche and Peterskirche, is one of the city's most prominent landmarks. Completed in 1690, its most notable features include its massive 71-meter-high dome, its richly decorated interior, and its stunning façade with its twin towers. Exterior highlights include numerous marble statues of saints and the lantern with a lion weathervane atop the dome. The interior, dominated by the tall round-headed arches of the barrel vaulting and the dome over the crossing, is washed in white with rich stucco ornamentation. Other interior highlights include the high altar with its picture of The Virgin Enthroned with Angels from 1646 by Caspar de Crayer (a pupil of Rubens) and the Altar of the Virgin with a painting of the Holy Kinship from 1676. Finally, be sure to check out the Ducal Burial Vault where you'll see the tombs of members of the House of Wittelsbach.

National Theater Munich and the Bavarian State Opera



Widely regarded as one of the world's leading opera houses and home to the Bavarian State Opera, the National Theater (Nationaltheater München) was commissioned by King Maximilian I Joseph and built in Neoclassical style in 1818. Although destroyed during WWI, the structure was painstakingly rebuilt and reopened in 1963. Exterior highlights include the portico with its Corinthian columns, and its two triangular pediments reminiscent of a Greek temple. In the pediment of the portico itself are Apollo and the Muses, while in the pediment of the tall main structure is a colored glass mosaic depicting Pegasus. Inside, the delightful auditorium with its five tiers of seating is decorated in red, ivory, dove-blue, and gold. It was here that Wagner's Tristan und Isolde (1865), Die Meistersinger (1868), Rheingold (1869), and Die Walküre (1870) were performed, while today, it serves as home to the Munich Opera Festival, held here each summer.

Burial Place of the Kings: St. Michael's Church

The largest Renaissance church north of the Alps, St. Michael was completed in 1597 and is notable for its nave with its high barrel-vaulted roof, the dominant feature being the triumphal arch at the entrance to the choir, the pattern of which is continued in the arches of the transepts, side chapels, and galleries. A striking feature is the tall three-story-high altar, along with the altarpiece, St. Michael fighting the Devil, from 1587. The four bronze reliefs dating from 1595 were intended for the tomb of Duke William V, while in the side chapels are many fine paintings and a precious reliquary of Saints Cosmas and Damian from around 1400. Another must-see is the Royal Crypt (Fürstengruft) underneath the choir, where 41 members of the House of Wittelsbach - among them Duke Wilhelm V, the church's patron; Elector Maximilian I; and King Ludwig II - are buried.
