Charming Munich

Munich is one of Germany’s most famous cities. Not only is it known for Oktoberfest, but it is also has a famous clock in its main square. This town will capture your heart and leave you wanting more. The hospitality and openness of its people are the reason that it is an all year round destination. With its famous Christmas Markets, Oktoberfest, and legendary beer halls, this city has a consistent mix of both tourists and locals, providing travellers that unique feeling of belonging.

Goway Tip: Ask a local for the best beer hall. There are many famous ones, but they may tell you of a local gem. Make sure you visit the Marienplatz square at the top of the hour, and look up to the Glockenspiel (clock) to watch it chime.

Germany’s Gourmet Side

Explore Germany’s food scene. Germans are stereotyped for loving beer and sausage. However, this destination has so much more to offer. Take the time to explore the variety of food and drink on your Germany vacation.

Goway Tip: No matter where you are – whether it’s Berlin, where you can pop into one of the small local bakeries and pick up a baked good, or in a small town in Bavaria looking for the busiest pub of the evening, order what your neighbour is eating. You may not be sure what’s in it, but chances are it is delicious… and if it’s not, then chalk it up to being a Globetrotting experience.
