Munich is perhaps the most unique city I’ve visited in the whole of Europe. Once I arrived in the capitol of Bavaria, I was greeted with centuries old architecture contrasted with modern. This contrast plays a huge part in the city’s persona, modern yet old. Our stay was short, lasting only two days, but that was more than enough to explore the streets of Munich. One thing you’ll notice once you’re here is just how clean the city is, and their underground system being one one the most clean and efficient I’ve ever visited (after Copenhagen). You’re also greeted with all of this the minute you step out of the Munich airport.

The atmosphere here is a must when in Munich, diversity brings great energy. We then headed to the BMW HQ, I can admit that I’m not as big of a car fan as some but still a fan of design so I was indeed blown away by the exhibitions at the HQ. The BMW HQ is located near the Olympiapark and just across from it you’ll see the BMW Museum which hosts the history of BMW. We then visited the Allianz Arena, widely known for its exterior of inflated plastic panels, it is the first stadium in the world with a full color changing exterior, and yes it looked amazing.
The Germans are the most passionate when it comes to football, this was jaw dropping to see. Especially when Lewandowski headed home, the stadium roared, the air was full of ecstasy and all you could do was join the fans in celebration. Definitely one of my favorite experiences in Munich. The Arena is a must if you’re planning on visiting Munich and be sure to book your tickets in advance. As passionate as they are about football they are about bread. Seriously, make sure you try the bread when you’re there, it’s pretty good. My stay in Munich was short but very exciting, I say farewell to Munich as I wander its atmospheric (unusually clean) streets one last time.
