It is possible to reach the center of Munich, or rather the old city, through one of three doors. The fourth door is unfortunately not standing today. These are Sendlinger Tor, Isartor and Karlstor. They are all at the end of the city’s important and lively streets.

2-Breathe the city at Marienplatz

Marienplatz has been the heart of Munich for hundreds of years. Here, wheat markets were established, criminals were hanged, and even in 1568, it was the home of Duke V. Wilhelm’s wedding. The fact that both the old town hall (Altes Rathaus) and the new town hall (Rathaus) are located here show that the value of the city has never decreased.

If you want to try the local tastes, do what the Munich people do. You can taste Bavarian-style pastries, German pickles, different cheese, and delicatessen products. Viktualienmarkt and Elisabethmarkt are some of the places where you can try all of these tastes.

Frauenkirche, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, is one of the symbols of the city. St. Peter’s Church, Asamkirche, and St. Michael Church are some of the most touristic churches of the city.

The first thing that comes to mind related to Munich is the OctoberFest. It has a history of more than 200 years. The festival has been in the area called Theresienwiese since 1810. Here is an area where large and traditional brewers have set up tents and consumed Bretzels and beers in these tents.

Teufelsberg is the highest peak in Berlin with a height of 115 meters. The interesting feature of this hill, known as the Devil’s Mountain is that it was raised by the rubble from the second world war.

In the around of Berlin, there is a rural sightseeing area called 66 Lake Road. This area is one of the attractions for cyclists and trekking enthusiasts. However, the main reason that makes the rural excursion area an attraction center is that it is also a cemetery of war ruins. It has become one of the places frequented by treasure hunters due to the existence of aircraft scrap, old weapons, war materials and burials in the excavations.

Did you know that Berlin was once a bog? The pink colored pipes on the streets of Berlin were built for the evacuation of the underground water during the reconstruction of the city. In order to prevent image pollution, they painted the ugly drain pipes in pink.
