Major Events and Festivals

Plan summer flights to Munich for travel in June to be a part of one of the world’s biggest film festivals. The Munich Film Festival sees 18 cinemas showing more than 200 films. The movie premier is only one element of the festival’s success. Crowds gather to hear informative talks from actors, directors, producers, and writers. Book your return flights to Munich well in advance if you want to be a part of the more than 70,000 movie fans heading to the festival. Music lovers looking for cheap flights to Munich can enjoy the sights and sounds from the Tollwood Summer Festival. This lively musical fair runs for 25 days and features international singers and songwriters from a variety of genres. In addition to world class music, festival-goers can enjoy theatre performances and shop for handmade trinkets in the colourful stalls in the Markt der Ideen nearby. The Christkindlmarkt only adds to the magic of Munich at Christmastime. If you’re booking tickets to Munich for travel in November or December, make time in your schedule to visit this Christmas market in Old Town. Aside from the old world setting of the area, the decorated streets are lined with hundreds of stalls selling handicrafts, traditional gingerbreads, Christmas bric-a-brac and more. If you’re really in the Christmas spirit, head to the Christkindl Post Office for a special Christkindl stamp for your postcards.

The Best Time to Visit

If you’re hoping to be a part of the massive Oktoberfest celebrations, you’ll need to plan hotels and return flights to Munich at least a year in advance. The autumn festival can see upwards of one million visitors touch down in the city. You’ll also want to pack warmly before heading out on any autumn flights to Munich, as daily temperatures range between -1 to -15°C. With the exception of Christmastime and New Year festivities, the cold winter weather tends to equal fewer crowds between December through February. As such, this can be a great time to snap up deals on cheap flights to Munich. Keep in mind, however, winter days can be as cold as -6°C. March through May experience warmer spring weather without the influx of summer crowds. This is a great time to see the beauty of the city and still take advantage of low prices on an airfare to Munich. If you’re booking flights to Munich for travel in summer, between June through August, expect to share the city with much larger crowd numbers. Sunnier days see comfortable temperatures hovering around 21°C, setting the perfect backdrop for biergarten experiences and outdoor exploration. If you plan on visiting any museums or landmarks, try to arrive early in the morning to beat the crowds.

How Much Time to Spend in Munich

No matter if you’re landing at Munich Airport (MUC) on the way to another destination or arranging flights to Munich for a longer stay, there is plenty to see, do, taste, and experience. Spending three to five days in the historic city will allow you to see every major landmark as well as take in elements of traditional German culture. For a one or two-day itinerary, book a walking tour of Old Town, or Altstadt as soon as you finalise your flights to Munich. A two-hour tour may include taking in sites such as Old Town Hall, St Peter’s Church, and the Munich Residenz. You’ll stroll through the stalls at the colourful Viktualienmarkt and maybe visit one of Munich’s favourite tourists’ spots, the Hofbräuhaus. Learn about WWII history with flights to Munich by arranging a Third Reich tour. As well as visiting locations and sites that played in important role in the history of the Third Reich, you will also be taken past various memorials and monuments. Spending a day travelling out to Neuschwanstein Castle is a perfect way of seeing more than just the city upon booking return flights to Munich. This fairytale castle is one of the most recognisable in Europe, originally built as the summer home for Bavarian royalty. The palace features an incredible array of Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassical architecture, and was even the inspiration for the Walt Disney castle. Neuschwanstein Castle is visited by more than one million people every year. Book your flights to Munich and plan to spend at least half a day exploring this part of the Bavarian countryside. A third day in Munich could be spent daytripping to beautiful Nuremberg. You can catch a train to Nuremberg (try reserving your seats at the same time as booking your cheap flights to Munich) and then discover incredible medieval landmarks, including those used in pre-WWII propaganda rallies. On a guided tour, you may also see Congress Hall, Gothic churches, and the Documentation Centre. Other opportunities are snacking on traditional German foods and toasting with a Bavarian beer. Any other time you have in Munch should be spent moving between other local must-sees, including the BMW museum, the Olympic Park area, English Gardens and Marienplatz.
