City of Munich, Germany

Munich is the capital city of Bavaria, Germany. It is located on the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Franz Josef Strauss International airport is Germany's second largest airport. The airport began operations in 1992, replacing the former main airport, the Munich-Riem airport.

The Peterskirche is the oldest church of the inner city, which was first built during the Romanesque period. Heiliggeistkirche (The Church of the Holy Spirit) was converted to baroque style from 1724 onwards and looks down upon the Viktualienmarkt, the most popular market of Munich. The Frauenkirche is the most famous building in the city centre and serves as cathedral for the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising.

The Deutsches Museum, located on an island in the River Isar, is one of the oldest and largest science museums in the world. The city has several important art galleries, most of which can be found in the Kunstareal, including the Alte Pinakothek, the Neue Pinakothek, and the Pinakothek der Moderne. The Kunstareal will be further augmented by the completion of the Egyptian Museum. An important collection of Greek and Roman art is held in the Glyptothek and the Staatliche Antikensammlung (State Antiquities Collection).

Munich is a major European cultural centre and has played host to many prominent composers. The National theatre is the home of the Bavarian State Opera and the Bavarian State Orchestra.

Munich is a green city with numerous parks.
