Situated near the Alps, the capital of Bavaria became the most important economic centre in southern Germany after the Second World War. In the early 21C, new districts are being built which combine the ideas of sustainable development and environmentally friendly forms of transport. Munich is now the second most popular tourist destination in Germany after Berlin. Art enthusiasts flock to the magnificent museums and Baroque churches, while the famous Beer Festival draws crowds of visitors eager to enjoy the festivities and the local brew!
