Munich offers a wealth of beautiful parks and castles including the Englischer Garten, Botanical Gardens and Stadium, Zoo Hellabrunn, the Residenz, Schloss Nymphenburg and Herrenchiemsee. King Ludwig II built his fabulous residences Linderhof and Neuschwanstein. The Neues and Altes Rathaus (city hall) define two sides of Marienplatz, the central plaza where visitors enjoy a historic Glockenspiel. For a taste of traditional entertainment, try the Viktualienmarkt and Hofbrauhaus. Munich’s tradition of Oktoberfest, nearly two centuries old, was originally a marriage celebration of Crown Prince Ludwig to Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen.

Cincinnati’s Tyler Davidson Fountain was designed and fabricated in Munich, arriving in 1871 as a gift to the city from Cincinnatian Henry Probasco.
