Munich - Culture

A path criterion


 Munich is very much a small town that just grew a lot. Although Munich is Germany's third largest city with 1.3 million inhabitants, much about the city and the culture of the people give it quite an olde worlde charm.

On Sundays you will see the locals wearing Dirndl or Lederhosen when they visit beer gardens or for formal occasions stating that guests should wear traditional clothing. Which brings us to a very important part of the culture: beer. The seasons are marked by the colour, texture and alcoholic content of beer served at that particular time of year.

Many localities have small beer fests, the largest of these being Oktoberfest, which is of course held in September. Beer can be drunk at any time of the day. In fact, the traditional Munich breakfast consists of white sausages and a special wheat beer called Weissbier.
