The Berlitz Pocket Guide to Munich has been fully revised and updated and provides all the information you need to enjoy this exciting and historic city. Clear colour-coded sections enable you to locate the information you need easily, and full colour fold-out maps provide instant orientation wherever you are. The Top 10 attractions are highlighted on an illustrated, double-page spread, capturing everything you simply cannot afford to miss, such as Marienplatz, the Residenz Palace and Olympiapark, and much more, helping you to make the most of your stay. The comprehensive 'Where to Go' chapter covers the entire city, with recommended excursions for those wanting to travel a little further afield. From tips on attending the opera or a jazz concert to enjoying the city's fantastic sporting facilities, there are plenty of ideas for things to do, including activities for children. A calendar of events detailing festivals, concerts and commemorative dates ensures you don't miss out on some of Munich's most interesting cultural events throughout the year. A dedicated 'Eating Out' section provides information on local specialities and useful German phrases and vocabulary to help you read the menu and place orders with ease. Munich has a fascinating history, all of which is explored within the 'History' section, along with a timeline of historical landmarks, from the middle ages to modern day. An invaluable 'Travel Tips' section provides an A-Z summary of practical information and expert travel advice on transport, climate, religion, money, health and much more. You will also find a detailed listings section with recommended hotels and restaurants to suit all budgets.
