15 best hotels in Munich for city breaks and Oktoberfest

With lively beer gardens, palaces, castles and a host of museums, there’s plenty to see and do in Munich. But where to stay? The best hotels in Munich are mainly situated in the Old Town – Alstadt – which is filled with Munich city centre’s most iconic landmarks and beautiful Bavarian architecture. A great place for both first-time visitors and families, Alstadt is one of the most touristy parts of the city (and also most expensive) so best to book well ahead.

Why visit Munich?

Munich’s proximity to the Alps and its famous Oktoberfest are two of its main draws for tourists. Oktoberfest lays claim to being the world’s largest folk (read: beer) festival – which takes place every October in the city center. Expect to see lots of tourists dressed up in lederhosens and dirndl dresses (a traditional Bavarian dress with full skirt, apron and tight bodice) munching their way through thousands of grilled sausages, chickens, giant pretzels and – of course – litres of beer. 

But, if you don’t fancy that (or you don’t like beer) wait for the Oktoberfest tents to be cleared and visit Munich for it’s historic culture instead.
