closeMunich, the capital of Bavaria, is a large cosmopolitan city that has been able to retain a provincial atmosphere. Its center is very compact, making it easy to tour the city on foot.
Most of the landmarks, like the Frauenkirche and New Town Hall can be found in the historic center. Munich's efficient subway will bring you to more remote sights, such as the Olympiapark and Nymphenburg Palace.
