Nymphenburg Palace & Park. Palace and park in perfect harmony.

Nymphenburg Palace & Park. Palace and park in perfect harmony.

Nymphenburg is a European masterpiece, a story book of Bavarian history and an example of architecture and landscape design in seldom-seen harmony.

Has there ever been a more beautiful new baby gift? The Bavarian Elector Ferdinand Maria was so delighted at the birth of a much longed-for heir to his throne that he gave his wife Adelaide von Savoyen a piece of land. That was in 1663, and the Wittelsbach Electress Henriette Adelaide von Savoyen built herself a "borgo de la ninfe", a small summer villa with a garden. This was the predecessor of Nymphenburg Palace. At the start of the 18th century the building was extended on both sides, with residential pavilions connected by galleries being added. The exterior was remodelled in the French style and the modest palace transformed into a large, elegant summer residence. Visiting Nymphenburg Palace today is like taking a walk through a book of Bavarian history. The Kings and Electors of Bavaria left their traces here over a period of almost two hundred years. The first heated indoor pool of the modern age and the silver-blue Amalienburg hunting lodge from the rococo period are elements of a perfect baroque palace and offer an extravagant yet delicate richness of detail in a rare splendour. In the north wing of Nymphenburg Palace is the Museum of Man and Nature, which takes you on a journey back in time through the history of the Earth and mankind. Nearby attractions: Hofgarten Park Munich is one of the largest Renaissance gardens north of the Alps. In the north-east of the garden, there is a path that takes visitors straight to the English Garden. To the north of Munich, Lustheim House in the grounds of Schleissheim Palace contains a famous collection of historical Meissen porcelain. South of Munich is Am Schachen House, which was used by King Ludwig II as a private retreat during his stays in the mountains. A botanical Alpine garden was laid out in front of the house in 1900.

The GOP Variety Theatre Munich is a place where dreams are just beginning. It's curtain up for the glittering world of variety, for its magicians and aerialists, its comedians and compères, for the whole world of acrobatic arts and live entertainment. The former comedy theatre Max II continues the GOP Entertainment Group's tradition of finding extraordinary venues for its variety theatres.

For many years, until 2007, the Kleine Komödie am Max II was an integral part of Munich's cultural scene, featuring well-known performers including Johannes Heesters, Ilja Richter, Grit Boettcher, Uschi Glas, Heinz Rühmann and Walter Sedlmayr. When this prestigious venue was forced to close its doors in 2007, the opportunity arose to reopen it as a new GOP Variety Theatre. Since 2008 a series of modern, innovative shows has taken to the stage, each one for two months. Linked by a common theme, the individual shows leave the audience in raptures time and time again. Profound, poetic or bursting with life and energy, each show offers a different experience. Exceptional stage shows and culinary delights combine to create an evening to thrill the senses. The winning combination of premium live entertainment, creative gastronomic concepts and friendly, competent service is precisely what makes the GOP Variety Theatre Munich such a hit with audiences and keeps them coming back for more.

When it's the Wies'n – local speak for Oktoberfest – in Munich, the Bavarian capital, around seven million people make the pilgrimage to Theresienwiese. This is the world's biggest beer festival, so the catering is on a massive scale: millions of roast chickens are eaten and a veritable herd of spit-roast oxen is washed down by several million towering mugs of beer. Dating back over 200 years, the Oktoberfest is a hallowed tradition that, despite its size, still spells out what it means to be Bavarian.

It has millions of international fans and has spawned many imitations around the world – but there can only ever be one original Oktoberfest. Ever since Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria married Princess Therese in 1810 and a grand horse race was held in a field on the edge of the city, the site has been known as Theresienwiese – and the Oktoberfest as the Wies'n. Traditionally the festivities begin on the dot of noon on the first Saturday after 15 September, when the mayor of Munich taps the first keg and yells "O’zapft is!" Once the Oktoberfest is officially open, a twelve-gun salute signals to the bar staff to get the beer flowing and then there's no holding back. The 10,000 seats in the beer tents start to fill up, the fairground rides whirl, the band strikes up and it's party time. Be sure to book your hotel room well in advance because, like the seats in the beer tents, they're few and far between at Wiesn time.
