Nestled in Southern Bavaria, Munich is Germany's third largest city. The city is home to the world famous Oktoberfest and Hofbräuhaus beer hall plus the Pinakothek art galleries, BMW and Bayern Munich. With all this to see and do, the city marries old Bavarian tradition with vibrant modern life.

Whilst in Munich, visitors can see the 15th century Gothic Church of Our Lady with its famous onion domes, walk to Marienplatz where the carillon plays three times a day or visit one of the most famous tavern in the world, the Hofbräuhaus beer hall (which has live Bavarian music each night).

Visitors arriving at Munich's airport (Franz Josef Strauss Flughafen) can travel into the city by a range of transport but the quickest way is by S-Bahn (#8 or #1) which will take travellers to Hauptbahnhof, Munich's main train station. Hauptbahnhof is situated inthe northwest corner of the old city and a 10 minute walk from the meeting venue and the historic center of Munich.
