Munich is a city of palaces and public parks, art and coats of arms, Oktoberfest and oompah bands. Olympiapark, site of the 1972 Olympic games, can't be missed. You can actually skate on the Olympic ice rink and swim in the Olympic pool. Kids and their parents will like the puppet museum, the historical toy collection and the marionette theater that performs Mozart operas. And no Munich visit would be complete without meeting strangers while drinking the local brew at a beer garden.
