Munich | this city is situated in the south of Germany near the Alp mountains. But sometimes it seems to me also close to the very far Italian coast, so that sometimes you think that you can really feel the warm sun of the south and see the clear darkblue sky over the Meditarian sea. It's the city where so many movies took place and the avantgarde of art and fashion is alive.
If you want you can be part of this pathetic way of living. On the other hand you can take a walk to the Viktualienmarkt (traditional market place), where the Bavarian saleswomen offers you some potatoes, cheese or fruits of the season. Or you visit the fantastic Hofgarten (the Italien style Renaissance garden) | close to the center of Munich and even so far from the busy City | where the time seems to stand still. Don't forget the Chinese Tower with its beergarden in the middle of the English Garden. The monuments of former times are mostly placed everywhere on the western bank of the river Isar, but you can find the Friedensengel (angel of peace) or the MuNllersche Volksbad (magnificent art nouveau bath) on the other riverside.
Munich is not a megacity, which is true for sure. It's more like a big village and the people enjoy the contrast of german business and italian way of "easyliving". Here is the high quality home of major museums and theaters, the centre of architecture and culture since the early 19th century and the home of young start-ups and artists. And beside the rebuilt traditional cityscape there is added a modern face to the city of black and gold - the colors of the Holy Roman Empire.
