The history of the city begins from the period whenIn the 8th century, monks from the nearby Tegernsee Monastery settled at this place. True, the documentary evidence of the formation of the town “Villa Munichen” is mentioned only in 1158, but on the other hand, almost immediately, in 1175, this official status is assigned to it.

The modern development of the city is based on the postulatethe city’s love for each of its members, a vivid example of which is the holding of various entertainment and cultural-artistic events. For example, holding the Oktoberfest beer festival (Oktoberfest).

- Picture gallery - “Old Pinakothek” (Alte Pinakothek) with works of masters from the Middle Ages to the middle of the 17th century.
- A collection of pictures of modern art collected in the art gallery - "New Pinakothek" (Neue Pinakothek);
- The works of the ancient era, in turn, are stored in the Glyptothek.
- In addition, it is impossible not to mention the largest technical museum in Europe - the German Museum, the Museum of Toys and many other world-class cultural institutions.

Separate attention deserve:
- The Church of St. Peter (him. Peterskirche), built in the 12th century, in the Romanesque style, but restored after the fire of the 14th century in the Gothic style.
- As if in honor of perpetuating the process of the Counter-Reformation, during the Renaissance in Germany, by order of William V, the Church of St. Michael was erected;
- A clear and vivid example of the Baroque architectural structure built in Munich is the Church of Sts. John Nepomuk - Azamkirche (Azamkirhe).
