Towns & Cities

The City Of Munich

I moved to Munich in 2006 and I knew from the first moment that I would be spending a considerable amount of my spare time exploring the city with its historical past but also its modern present. 10 years on I have accumulated quite a substantial collection of imagery that I would like to share with you here in various categories.

City Centre

The Residence, Assam Church, English Garden & exclusive shopping areas are just a few of the many highlights waiting to be discovered in Munich’s historical city centre.

Skyline

Skyline, what skyline? Okay, Munich isn’t exactly Hong Kong or New York but that is a little of the charm of this skyline with a free view of the Alps.

Nymphenburg Palace & Gardens

Castle of the Nymphs is a Baroque palace situated in the heart of Munich, once home to many of the Bavarian monarchy.

Olympic Park

The Olympic Games of 1972 where American swimmer Mark Spitz won 7 gold medals were largely overshadowed by the “Munich massacre”. Today the park is a tourist hotspot due to its picturesque setting & historical past.

All Things BMW

BMW is one of the largest companies in Munich that contributes considerably to the city & its residents welfare.

Marienplatz, Munich's Heart

Centre point of Munich is Marienplatz where locals & tourists alike come to drink a coffee, take in the latest shopping trends & to see the Glockenspiel.

English Garden

The English Garden was created in 1789 & is the lung of the city stretching from the town centre to the northeastern outskirts.

Residence Palace

Home to the Bavarian monarchs of the Wittelsbach family the largest city palace in Germany.

Rococo, Baroque & Co

Munich boasts some of the most beautiful architecture from the Baroque, Rococo & Gothic periods.

Bayern Munich

Home to superstars Arjen Robben, Manuel Neuer, Robert Lewandowski, Franck Ribéry & Thomas Müller, Bayern Munich is the most successful club in German football history.

 Did You Know?

A large part of Munichs architectural highlights have had to be restored after 80% of the old town centre was destroyed by allied bombing in World War Two. The restoration has been so extensive that after visiting the architectural highlights many find it difficult to believe the state of destruction in which the city was left in 1945.
