Win Two Return Flights to Munich with Lufthansa

Fly directly from Dublin to Munich with Lufthansa German Airlines and experience the historic capital of Bavaria for yourself!

To make visiting even easier, Lufthansa is adding a third daily service on the Dublin to Munich route in Summer 2019.

Lufthansa passengers will experience the airline’s Five Star service and be served a snack and beverage of their choice, free of charge, during the flight.

With passenger demand growing consistently, Lufthansa has more than doubled services from Dublin to its hubs in Frankfurt and Munich in the last four years adding 26 additional frequencies to reach a total of 47 flights per week.

The new flight will operate five days a week, with the inbound service operating Monday-Friday and the outbound service operating Tuesday-Saturday. The route will be served by the Airbus A320 aircraft family.

Munich is the capital and third-largest city of Germany after Berlin and Hamburg. Straddling the banks of the River Isar (a tributary of the Danube) north of the Bavarian Alps the city is home to 6 million people.

Munich offers leisure activities all throughout the year that are hard to beat. Whether they are indoors or out in the fresh air – there is a lot to do.

Explore Munich by bike

There is hardly a more relaxing way to explore the city. Cyclists in Munich will find a dense network of cycle paths, which can be conveniently used to reach many of the most important sights.

Visit museums in Munich

With their passion for collecting, the Bavarian kings laid the foundation for Munich’s reputation as a city of art. To this day, buildings such as the Pinakothek museums, the Lenbachhaus, the Villa Stuck museum or the Haus der Kunst (‘House of Art’) maintain this reputation. But that is only one perspective on Munich as a city of museums. Technology fans will find everything their hearts desire in the Deutsches Museum.

Experience nature

Not many cities can offer this: The banks of the Isar are accessible from almost anywhere in the city and give you the chance to have a fantastic break in the open air. Parks like the well-known Englischer Garten or the rambling Olympiapark also provide the people of Munich with plenty of opportunity to experience nature. And in the Hellabrunn Zoo, which has numerous tributaries from the Isar flowing through it, you can get close to flora and fauna at the same time.

View from the Olympic Tower

A visitor to the top of the Olympiaturm will see Munich laid out like a large carpet from the base of the tower. From the observation platform, at a height of almost 190 metres, you can see all the way to the Alps on a clear day. In the centre, there are the towers of St. Peter’s Church and the Neues Rathaus, which give you the best view of the city and its architectural history.

Shop to your heart’s content

Munich’s shopping heart beats between Marienplatz and Stachus. But that isn’t the only place you can go shopping. Sendlinger Straße also has a lot of fans, with some of its remaining owner-run businesses, as well as Hohenzollernstraße in Schwabing. Shopping centres like the Fünf Höfe or the Hofstatt are located in the heart of the city. The Riem Arcaden, Pasing Arcaden and the Olympia shopping centre and pep Neuperlach – all located on the outskirts of the city – also provide even more options.

Experience the beer garden culture

There is nowhere else where you can feel the Munich conviviality as strongly as in one of its many beer gardens. As soon as the first rays of sunshine start warming things up in spring, people are drawn to the shade of the chestnut trees, where they enjoy a little snack. Visitors can bring their own pretzels, obazda (a Bavarian cheese delicacy) and fresh salads; cool beers can be bought there. If you want to be even more comfortable, you can always bring a cushion with you to sit on the beer bench with.

Swimming in one of Munich’s swimming pools

Whether you are a sporty swimmer with Olympic ambitions or a casual athlete: Munich’s range of indoor swimming pools has the right one for everyone. The 50-metre lanes at Dantebad are a test of your fitness, while things are a bit more relaxed at Südbad. With its art nouveau look, the Müller’sche Volksbad is probably the most beautiful pool in Munich – but in summer the action moves to the various outdoor pools with their diving towers and water slides.

Experience cultural highlights

The Bavarian State Opera, the Residenztheater and the Cuvilliés-Theater are just some of the institutions which enjoy an excellent reputation beyond the Munich metropolitan area. For example, the Munich Philharmonic or the Bavarian State Orchestra compete over regular performances abroad. Performances and festivals take place all throughout the year in Munich – with plenty of pop, rock and jazz, too, of course.

Explore places near Munich

Only a stone’s throw from Munich, the lakes Starnberger See, Ammersee and Tegernsee offer almost unlimited recreational activities. Kloster Andechs, a monastery on the Heiliger Berg (‘sacred mountain’) can also be reached quickly; world-renowned Neuschwanstein Castle is easy to get to by car. You can even travel to Chiemsee by train and visit its islands Herreninsel and Fraueninsel. And in winter, the fun of skiing attracts people to the Alps.
