What to see and do
Every major city needs a central square around which the hustle and bustle of city life pulses. Marienplatz is Munich’s place - located right in the city centre. Marienplatz has served as a place for locals to meet, greet and mingle since the 1100s. The site of countless ancient jousting tournaments and open-air markets (both modern and traditional), Marienplatz is a solid, reliable constant in a city constantly changing and a must-see for every tourist.
Sitting on a hill above the Hohenschwangau village, The Neuschwanstein Castle was built by the ‘Fairytale King’, King Ludwig II of Bavaria in the early 19th century. The castle, with its unobstructed view of the Bavarian Alps, is a shining representation of a fairytale castle and has, in fact, inspired the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Hong Kong Disneyland.
