Hotels in Munich: how to choose a hotel, which area of the city to stay in

Hello, friends!
This website is translated using "Google Translate", due to which there may be inaccuracies in the translation. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. I am working to improve the site! Currently, there are not enough funds for a high-quality translation. If you have the opportunity to help me, then you can do it with Donates →

Munich is the capital of Bavaria and a major city in Germany, full of various attractions, historical buildings, museums and just interesting places to walk and relax.

The choice of accommodation in Munich is very diverse - from budget guest houses and apartments, to 5-star hotels located both in the historical center of the city, near the River Isar and the Therese Meadow, and more remote from them.

The choice of accommodation in Munich will also affect the entire upcoming holiday: whether the accommodation is located in the city center, and therefore within walking distance from the main attractions or more remote from them.

Also, when choosing a means of accommodation (hotel, apartment, guest house, etc.), you should take into account the purpose of the trip - walking around the city and getting to know Munich, visiting a specific festival or event (for example, Oktoberfest, which takes place on the Teresa Meadow), a match at the Allianz Arena stadium, or you just need to spend the night in Munich near the car and train stations or the airport.
