What's Munich Like?
Many historical and economic landmarks exist within the city limits of Munich. One of Munich's oldest buildings is the Frauenkirche Cathedral, built in the Gothic style and commissioned in 1468. Although the work was completed in 1488 the project went through several periods where funding was sorely lacking. At the end of construction, the towers had to remain open because the funding simply wasn't there. The domes at the top were finally added in 1525. Visitors can also tour the BMW Headquarters, which are located at Petuelring 130. The building was designed in 1968, completed in 1972, and was meant to resemble the cylinder heads in a car engine. Visitors can tour Nyphemburg Castle ("Castle of the Nymphs") which was the summer residence of the rulers of Bavaria and the House of Wittelsbach. Construction on the castle began in 1664 and was completed in 1675 although a number of expansions were done throughout the early 1700's. The Munich Hofgarten (Court Garden) is another popular tourist attraction in the city. It has several artistic statues and has a domed pavilion in the center. The garden was built between 1613 and 1617.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Munich
After choosing from Hotels.com's selection of Munich Hotels, the traveler will want to get out and mingle. Getting along with locals in Munich is contingent on understanding German culture. With that being said, it is important to remember that Germans value punctuality, order, and resourcefulness. They are an extremely private people, so you should never ask them to give you a tour of their home and you should never call them at home either. Germans are a very formal and respectful people and always try to treat ladies with respect. Moreover, if a German corrects you in public, don't be offended. Germans see policing others with their social customs as one of their social duties. When you need to beckon a waiter, raise your hand and say "Herr Ober"; for a waitress raise your hand and say "Fraulein". When a server says "Guten Appetit", it means "please start" and is their way of telling you that it is time to start eating. An appopriate response would be "danke ebenfall" (thank you). Finally, be careful about giving gifts of wine to a German because they are very proud of their wine cellar. You can trust Hotels.com for all of your Munich Hotels and cultural information as well!
