Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
Located on the banks of the Rivar Isar, north of the Bavarian Alps, Munich is the third largest city in Germany with a population of just over 1.5 million people, a figure that rises to 2.6 million if you include the suburbs.
Almost 6 million people live in the Munich Metropolitan area and, as the city itself is a major centre for finance, art and culture, education, business and tourism, it’s become the most prosperous city in Germany. It’s also home to many museums, theatres and universities.
It boasts numerous architectural attractions and plays host to many international sports events, together with exhibitions, conferences and the world famous annual Oktoberfest.

The centre of Munich is defined as the area that’s located within the old city walls. Although many parts of the wall have long since disappeared, some portions do remain, together with three of the original gates.
Despite the fact that the city was badly damaged during the Second World War, many of its historic buildings have been rebuilt. Probably the most impressive and most popular tourist sites include the Frauenkirche - the largest church in Munich, and the Neues Rathaus, or city hall.
The Neues Rathaus is located within the city walls and houses the world famous Glockenspiel. Within the walls you’ll also find the Old city hall together with the Residenz, which was one of the homes of the Bavarian Royal family, plus the Nationaltheater and perhaps one of the most famous buildings of all, the Hofbräuhaus am Platzl, where the Oktoberfest started.
If you’re a keen shopper, you’ll find all the shops you need in the centre, particularly on Neuhauser Strasse and Kaufinger Strasse where there are a number of top department stores and high street brands.
If you favour luxury shopping, head for Maximilianstrasse, Theatinerstrasse, Residenzstrasse and Brienner Strasse.
While getting around the old city of Munich is easily achievable on foot, you may want to consider hiring a coach or bus if you want to travel a little further afield. A visit to Maxvorstadt, the academic and arts district just north of the city centre is a must for academics and is also the home of some of the best art museums in the city, including the Pinakotheken, the Lenbach Haus, the Glyptothek and Museum Brandhorst.
We can also provide comfortable transport for visits to Schwabing and English Garden, the Olympic area and Neuhausen-Nymphenburg if you want to get to know Munich a little better.
If there’s one thing that puts Munich right on the map, it’s the breweries and beer. Whether you prefer Weissbier, Helles, Starkbier or Dunkles, you’ll find a visit to the city’s breweries completely fascinating, although an afternoon or evening spent in one of the traditional Bavarian ale houses will also prove to be interesting.
Visitors who come to Munich especially for the annual Oktoberfest will be able to try a special type of Märzen beer (which has a higher alcohol content) brewed specially for the occasion.
Of course, after sampling the many types of German beer available on tap, there’s no better way to get home or back to your hotel than in one of our comfortable buses or coaches, so if you’re planning a group trip to the Oktoberfest, get in touch with Rent A Bus now and book your transport.
