Munich - in the Heart of Europe

Munich, the leading business metropolis in the heart of Europe offers you, as our guests, an inspiring environment between tradition and modernity: a city of full of life’s joys, coziness and progressiveness.  

Munich is easy to reach from around the world and is one of the safest cities in Europe. Nestled in the wonderful lakes and foothills of the Alps in Upper Bavaria, Munich offers a perfect infrastructure with a wide selection of hotels in all categories. 

Known for its world-famous Oktoberfest, the “cosmopolitan city with a heart” delights visitors with its historic center, magnificent monuments, spacious green oases and a world-class cultural scene. The people of Munich are cosmopolitan and welcome their guests with open arms, offering them plenty of opportunities to participate in the vibrant life of the city. 

Munich is one of the greenest cities in the world with its many recreation areas and parks. With some 900-acres, the “English Garden” is THE largest city park in the world—with shaded paths and lanes, brooks and ponds, and its four famous beer gardens (Chinesischer Turm, Seehaus, Hirschau, Aumeister).The landscaped Olympiapark (site of the 1972 Olympics) features sports facilities, lakes, bicycle trails, concert venues, restaurants, a sports stadium and the landmark “tent-style” roofs visible from afar.1,200 km of bicycle tracks turn Munich into one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in Europe.

The ICM – International Congress Center Messe München, is a state-of-the-art congress centre combining clean design with maximum flexibility.
