Munich, capital of Bavaria

Although it is the second largest city in Germany, Munich likes to think of itself as a village; a village of one and a half million inhabitants. A modern city with a long tradition, relaxed and full of charm, lively and enchanting at the same time, Munich is the German capital of the art of living with a southern side that is not only related to its geographical position. To really understand it, you have to take the time to walk in the splendid city center, a paradise for pedestrians, stop here and there and soak up the festive atmosphere that its inhabitants develop as a badge. honor. And not just once a year, during the famous Oktoberfest.




The village of "Munichen" (with the monks in Old German) was born in the 9th century near a Benedictine abbey. The Augsburger Vergleich agreement between Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony and the bishop of Freising, then at war, signed on June 14, 1158 during the council of the empire summoned by Emperor Barbarossa is considered the founding act of the city. In 1180, Otto de Wittelsbach became Duke of Bavaria and founded a dynasty that reigned over the region until 1918. From the late XVIIth century, Munich grew rapidly. In November 1923, Adolf Hitler and his companions attempted a coup (the coup of the brewery) but they failed. Having come to power, the Nazis made Munich the "capital of the movement" and built several buildings between 1933 and 1945. After WW2I and with the reconstruction, Munich became a place dedicated to new technologies and industry. It's the city of Siemens and BMW.
