Munich is the city that Germans love to hate most. Bavarians consider it their pride and joy; whereas, the rest of Germany considers it conservative, snooty, and rather boring. After having spent the summer here, however, I can assure you that tucked behind the Biergartens and the grandiose architecture this city has a lot of charm. From the evening candle-light diners who eat and drink on the steps of the Glyptothek to the sunbathers who jump into the cold water of the Isar, Munich is a lot more than its reputation.
