Beyond the Oktoberfest. Art, murals, photography, street markets, fusion cuisine, sports, hipster neighborhoods and the rainbow. Munich is always more surprising: tradition and folklore give space to a city that is full of events and ideas of all kinds. This is Germany that fascinates young professionals and culture enthusiasts. It has an elegant and distinct character that is perceived in various nuances, from the architectures and the clubs. Monaco collects exciting places, activities and cultural proposals. It already happens when you arrive at the Franz Josef Strauss airport, with excellent bars and the possibility, sometimes, to stop and watch an exhibition.
This is the case of the faces of the fishermen of Monopoli captured in black & white by the lens of the young portrait photographer Piero Martinello, the same shots that last September inaugurated the first edition of the international festival of photography PhEST , in Monopoli, Puglia.
And then the excellent German beer, an integral part of the local culture, to be tasted in chic and alternative places for an experience that becomes practically obligatory if you want a food and wine tour. Led by the tourist office and marketing of this city, here are ten good reasons to visit Monaco.
1) The historic center on foot
Marienplatz stop. It is the main square, the most loved by tourists. The first recommended if you travel to Munich for business and you want to immerse yourself in the heart of the city between shopping, photos and relaxation in the various squares, galleries and clubs. During the day, the main attraction is the carillon of the new town hall, which starts at 11 and 12 (in the summer also at 5 pm) and moves the characters to the notes of a melody typical of little mobile phones. All with their noses upwards to admire the dance. In the center there are also the “Frauenkirche” cathedral and the Hofbräuhaus, the most famous brewery in Munich.
