Munich (

Munich, the capital of Bavaria, is renowned the world over for its architecture, art and culture, not to mention the world’s biggest folk festival, the Oktoberfest. The city is also a major international finance, engineering, research and teaching location, with two top-class research universities and several multi-national companies. These are just a few of the reasons why Munich is numbered among the cities with the highest standard of living in the world.

With the Alps on its doorstep and surrounded by numerous lakes and picturesque landscapes, the Munich area is among the most beautiful in Europe. 

Munich itself is a flourishing city, benefiting from a state-of-the-art infrastructure, and is one of Europe’s most important economic hubs. 

For years, it has also been Germany’s safest city.

In the course of the 19th century, the Bavarian kings transformed Munich into a city of the fine arts and science. Today, it enjoys an international reputation for its wide range of cultural attractions, its vibrant nightlife and its collections of classical and modern art. 

Particular highlights include the Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall) with the Glockenspiel on Marienplatz, the Deutsches Museum – the world’s largest science and technology museum – and the Pinakotheken galleries in the art district. Munich’s trademark Frauenkirche can be seen from a great distance. The town is also full of islands of green, such as the English Garden – one of Europe’s largest parks – along with the park at the Nymphenburg Palace and the Olympic Park.

Soccer fans will find all they could wish for at the Allianz Arena. 

The Biergarten is a must for anyone wanting to experience typical Bavarian life up close.

The area around Munich is packed full of things to do, e.g. golf, sailing, skiing, cycling and climbing. The nearby countries of Austria, Italy, Switzerland and the Czech Republic are also within easy reach.


Freiham, on the western outskirts of Munich, is a new industrial location that has already attracted several technology companies. It owes its name to a medieval manor house in the south of the Munich borough of Neuaubing. Adjacent to the manor house, and located in idyllic parkland, is Freiham Palace. The chestnut-lined avenues that once connected the two properties are now protected. Today’s visitors are most often interested in the "Schlosswirtschaft", a restaurant and Biergarten in the grounds of the manor house.   

Freiham enjoys excellent connections to the road network and the A96 and A99 freeways, as well as being easy to reach using public transport (S-Bahn line 8).  


Odelzhausen is a small community to the west of Munich, and lies on the freeway A8 between Munich and Augsburg.   

Of particular interest here are St Benedict’s Parish Church and the Furthmühle, a historic grain mill from the 12th century that is now home to a sawmill and a museum.
