It has derived its name from the word “Munichen” meaning by the Monks. Being the capital city of Bavaria, it is the third most populous city of Germany. Most of the historical architectures were destroyed by the World war, a building has been rebuilt now and it mostly looks like the same as it used to be in the late 1800s including it’s largest Church, City hall and the Frauenkirche.

Munich is the major global centre for Science and Innovation also serving as a prime factor of art, finance, publishing, culture and media, education and casing several multinational companies. Munich is one of the fastest growing cities in the world with a multitude of world-class technology and science museums.

Frauenkirche is a massive Gothic church with twin 100-meter-tall towers, Renaissance domes. These twin towers are visible from all over the city.

There is also a strange fact regarding the footprint on the floor of the porch which is believed to be left by the devil who came to visit the church and that print is still there.

One of the most beautiful gardens here is the English Garden which covers almost 910 acres, being the largest park in Germany.
