Makers Bible München


A city with many faces and as many clichés. But Munich is first of all refreshingly green. The banks of the Isar, the parks and beer gardens never let this concrete jungle feeling of other metropolises come up. Compared to other European cities, the city also has a very high density of educational and cultural institutions. Politically, the state capital has for decades been considered the red stronghold of the otherwise conservative Bavaria, which is mainly due to its employee and working class. If, for once, the Mittlerer Ring proved to be free of traffic jams, the three-quarters of an hour drive into the mountains might actually be sufficient. Munich embodies a livable mixture of tradition and tolerance, hard work and leisure. Cheers to that!
