The city is famous for hosting popular annual events like Oktoberfest which was first held in 1810 to honour the marriage of Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. Booking you accommodation at Munich Airport will need to be done well in advance if you are planning on attending such a popular event. You can compare prices of top class hotels like the Holiday Inn Express Munich Airport Oberding and the Sheraton Muenchen Airport Hotel with smaller, and possibly cheaper options from smaller hotels and inns.
Munich: medieval town to popular tourist destination
Munich is assumed to have been founded in 1158 but it wasn’t until 1175 that it was granted city status. Over the years, the city has grown from a little known medieval town to one of the pillars of German history and society. It was even home to influential figures such as Albert Einstein, Pope Benedict XVI and Freddie Mercury. Munich has been home to some of the most important people in history from intellects, artists and poets to nobility and Nobel Prize winners.
Tourists and residents can enjoy the rich history and impact of these important people by visiting places like the Pinakothek art museum that holds fascinating works of art from the 14th to the 18th century.
Asam’s Church (Asamkirche) is as much a museum as it is a site of historic importance. It was built in the 1700s by brothers Cosmas Damian and Egid Quirin Asam. They vowed to build this church if they avoided a frightening shipwreck. They surely did and, today, visitors can enjoy frequenting it and enjoying everything it holds.
In contrast to the many fine architectural buildings in Munich, you will also find places like the Allianz Arena. As you make your way through the city, it is this very contrast of building styles that shows you how Munich has developed over the years and the various restoration projects that took place after troublesome times and war. Booking your hotel room near the airport will give you added convenience upon arrival and departure while hotels in Munich CBD will likely have an even better view of the city.
