The Westin Grand Munich
Address: Arabellastraße 6, 81925 München, Germany
A city with a big heart, as suave as it is easygoing, buzzing and yet tranquil. Munich is Germany's lifestyle capital. And on top of all this, it boasts one of the country's most beautiful squares: Marienplatz, at the heart of the city and home to the Old and New Town Halls. The famous town hall glockenspiel is as much a part of the city's identity as the Hofbräuhaus beer hall or the iconic Church of Our Lady with its green dome-crested towers. Browsing the stalls of the Viktualienmarkt is a feast for the senses, while the luxury shopping boulevards such as Ludwigstrasse or Maximilianstrasse are designed for those with an appreciation of the finer things in life. For a far more affordable, not to mention more relaxed, shopping experience, head to Munich's trendy Glockenbachviertel district and Gärtnerplatz square.
In Munich, the summers are comfortable and wet, the winters are very cold and snowy, and it is partly cloudy year round. Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from -4°C to 24°C and is rarely below -12°C or above 30°C.
The official language of course, is German, although English is very widely spoken. Germans have an excellent command of English in general, and you will be able to get by in the city without any German, although it is of course polite (and appreciated) to try and learn a few words and simple phrases.
