Munich : The Monocle Travel Guide Series
Munich is the capital of one of the oldest states in Europe so naturally its affinity with tradition runs deep. Yet, as well as having one foot in the old world, this southern German city has another firmly planted in the new. This guide will introduce you to Monocle's favourite family-run hotels and steer you towards the lively kitchens serving the best Bavarian classics. They'll also map out the postwar modernist structures worth seeing and recommend where you should grab your culture fix. Of course, no tour of the Bavarian capital would be complete without a stopover (or two) at one of its jolly Biergärten. Hike up your lederhosen and get a move on in München.
