From the Marienplatz in the centre – with its quaint Rathaus-Glockenspiel and annual festive market – to the grand Residenz palace, there’s a lot to fit into your stay.

The feelgood fever reaches a crescendo during the annual Oktoberfest – a colourful celebration of everything Bavarian.

Relax in the beautiful Englischer Garten, check out the all-conquering Bayern Munich at a football match or shop for sweet treats and flowers from the Viktualienmarkt.

Whatever is on your agenda, book flights to Munich with Etihad Airways and experience the beauty of Bavaria at its very best.

Bavaria enjoys reasonably warm summers, with plenty of sunshine in July and August and average temperatures around 17.5°C. The months of May, June and September generally see pleasant temperatures too – bring a jacket for cooler evenings.

Reasons to visit Munich

Celebrate like a true Bavarian at Oktoberfest

The annual Oktoberfest is the world’s largest folk festival and attracts more than six million visitors every year. Beginning at the end of September, this world-famous event lasts for just over two weeks.

From bratwurst sausages to live music and plenty of dancing, it’s well worth booking your flight to Munich for this spectacular occasion. Be sure to book accommodation at the same time as your Munich plane tickets, as demand is always high.

Relax in the Englischer Garten

If you’re looking for a true oasis in the city, head to the Englischer Garten to kick back and relax. This huge urban park is a haven for cyclists, joggers and families with picnics. You can even surf on the Eisbach River if you’re feeling adventurous.

For something a little more slow-paced, tour each of the park’s three small islands or head to the Chinesischer Turm restaurant, where you’ll probably find an oompah band entertaining the diners.

Take a trip to a real fairy tale castle

One of Bavaria’s most awe-inspiring highlights is the 19th-century Neuschwanstein Castle, which served as inspiration for the home of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.

The idyllic rural location is breathtaking, with many travellers flocking to the Marienbrücke bridge for the best views of the exterior of the castle. Don’t neglect the inside though, as you can experience a grand tour of its royal splendour.

Things to know before you fly to Munich

plane Airport transfers

For a convenient onward journey following your flight into Munich, book a transfer with Etihad to have a driver waiting for you on arrival. Alternatively, you can reach Munich city centre in about 35 minutes using the S-Bahn or approximately 45 minutes by bus. Intercity buses also connect the airport to other cities across Germany and Europe.

holiday Public holidays

The people of Munich observe a number of religious and public holidays. German Unity Day is marked on 3 October each year, while Corpus Christi Day is usually in late May or early June. These shouldn’t cause major disruptions, but some museums and shops may be closed during these times.

bus Getting around

Munich has an extensive public transport network, with trams, buses, underground (U-Bahn) and suburban (S-Bahn) trains. S-Bahn lines go through the city centre and connect main railway stations to other key locations such as Karlsplatz. You can buy one ticket to use on all public transport, making it even easier to travel across Munich.

meals Local cuisine

From schweinshaxe (pork knuckle) to brazen (pretzels) and weisswurst (white sausage), food is a huge part of Bavarian culture – and there’s plenty to try here. Don’t miss the schmalznudel, a tasty sweet treat that’s perfect with a coffee in the Viktualienmarkt.

Flying to Munich: FAQs

Where should I stay in Munich?

The Altstadt – or old town – is at the very heart of things, with easy access to shops, restaurants and Munich’s key attractions. Maxvordstadt is ideally positioned for a more relaxed trip, with the pretty Englischer Garten at its centre, while Glockenbach is good for restaurants.

How many days should I spend in Munich?

It’s easy to get around the key visitor attractions in Munich, so you can pack quite a lot into two or three days if your schedule is tight. Alternatively, immerse yourself in the local Bavarian culture for a week or so, or use Munich as the first destination on a wider two-week German adventure.

Which airport do you fly to for Munich?

Munich Airport (MUC) – also known as Franz Joseph Strauss Airport – is the city’s only major airport. The S-Bahn and bus network make transfers easy, or you can book with Etihad for a hassle-free trip.
