The Insight Guide to Munich, Germany

You really want to visit Munich, but you do not yet know what to do and where to go? You want to get to know the city off the beaten path? The Insight Guide to Munich and Upper Bavaria is what you need! Today, Ivana of Weltenbummlerin.net, reveals some insiders’ tips…

Why should everybody visit Munich at least once in his life?

Because modern spirit meets tradition – and because everyone should have visited the Oktoberfest at least once.

What is Munich – and Upper Bavaria – famous for?

For vivid tradition, e.g. the arrangement of the Maypole.

In which season does Upper Bavaria show its most beautiful face??

Every season is great, but autumn is especially beautiful.

What should I eat in Munich?

Classic food next to Bavarian veal sausage (Weißwurst) – a Maß (one liter of beer) and an Hendl (fryer) at the Wiesn (Oktoberfest).

Is there anything in Munich or in the region that has unjustly fallen into oblivion?

The quiet hours at one of the lakes, the Ammersee for example.


Ivana is a real globetrotter – and incidentally, that is the translation of the name of her wonderful German blog. She loves to go backpacking, has lived and worked in India, and set foot on all five continents. She has moved to Munich from Franconia, has lived in the city for quite some time and has now found a home in a place between Munich and Rosenheim. Her portrait picture shows her in a Dirndl – something that, according to Ivana, every women should buy when in Munich. Because every woman looks gorgeous in the traditional dress, she says.


The Insight Guides are meant to be a guideline for guests and tourists to see the hidden spots and true gems of places they visit. They are photographed by locals showing their favorite spots.
