01 November 2018 to 04 November 2018

The City of Munich is located close to the Bavarian Alps in the centre of Europe. It offers many tourist attractions, a rich cultural programme with outstanding museums, theatres, music venues, cinemas and a varied nightlife. Munich International Airport can be reached directly from many cities in the world.

The English Garden is Munich’s huge green lung; the river Isar is one of the reasons for the city‘s existence: in 1157, Henry the Lion, duke of Bavaria, granted the monks settling there the right to establish a market where the road from Salzburg met the Isar River. A short history can be found here. The State of Bavaria celebrates its100th anniversary in 2018 and 200 years of the Bavarian constitution.
