Munich must be visited from March to May. This is the time when there is less crowd and the peak summer season has not set in. People, wanting to be a part of Oktoberfest celebrations in Munich, the largest beer festival in Europe, must make advance bookings. In October, the Munich climate is moderate, and it is the beginning of winters in a way. It is a low tourist season, so you should make a visit before the big holiday months of December and January crowd the city. For a visit in December or January, be prepared to shell out more money and bear the harsh cold. Plan a visit from March to May, when the summers just begin setting in, making it an ideal time to stay outdoors in Munich. A visit in June is special as it is the Munich Foundation Day celebrations time. Its official date of birth is June 14th in 1158. The occasion marks festival time for its citizens and tourists together. In Marienplatz, there are ‘live’ performances by musicians, artists and dancers, in addition to a special crafts market display, and kid’s entertainment sections. Thrice in a year, Munich conducts a traditional fair and market called the "Auer Dult". There is eating, drinking, shopping and the local cheers.
Munich has Bavarian Alps due to which it can get cold especially during the winters. In summers, to reach the top, you need a cap, gloves, heavy jacket, mainly a complete winter gear. Since the place has a continental climate, it can rain a lot. Even on a sunny day, a sudden spell of rain can surprise you. So, make sure to carry the rain gear with you everywhere. Carry a sturdy, comfortable pair of shoes and in the winters, use boots to stay warm.
Knowing German is a big plus. The tourist guides will speak in English and to be more conversing and interactive, it is important for you to speak slowly. Do not speak the words too fast. It is always good to listen to the common phrase used in German using the internet audio. Personal greeting in Germany will open new doors of hospitality for you. Remember to say a ‘good morning’ or a ‘hello’ every time you meet your appointed guide or a waiter, for example. Better still, use the local greeting phrase or language. Learning these basic German phrases will gain appreciation and smiles from the locals.
