Furthermore, the area is quite popular for shoppers, as on the nearby areas you will find numerous shopping opportunities. All Munich Tourism focuses on this beautiful square.

The Englischer Garten is a beautiful and large park in Munich. The English Garden was established in 1789, dedicated to becoming one of the best urban open spaces in the world. In fact, this beautiful green space is twice the size of 2 of the biggest parks in the world: Hyde Park in London and Central Park in New York City. In addition to its numerous pathways, English Garden features numerous attractions like the Bavarian State Archaeological Collection and the National Museum.

The Cathedral Church of Our Lady

Frauenkirche

The Frauenkirche, the cathedral of Munich is the famous landmark of Munich. Beyond its beautiful architectural style, the church is the protagonist of a very interesting story.

According to the local legend, the architect Jörg Von Halsbach needed money to build the cathedral in Munich, so to get the funds he ended up making a pact with the Devil. The Devil will provide the funds if he constructs a church with no windows to let the lights in. Jörg accepted the challenge. The construction lasted only 20 years, very little time for that era (from 1468 to 1488).

When the cathedral of Munich was finished, the devil looked out of the doorway and saw that there wasn’t any window (the window at the bottom was covered by a large altarpiece). However, he discovered that from the main entrance the columns cover all the windows of the church. When he found out he was tricked, he gets angry, so he left a footprint in the cathedral of Munich. The architect was cleverer than the devil.

Löwenbräukeller

As you can see, this German city not only offers beautiful areas and attractions but also interesting stories.

A visit to the capital of Denmark: Things to do in Copenhagen

At the moment it has become one of the European cities in which more people are cycling and has the record in terms of consumption of organic foods.

In addition, according to a global study conducted by the World Database of Happiness Denmark is, along with Asian Bhutan, the happiest country in the world. Here are the top things to do in Copenhagen, in addition to being photographed with the famous mermaid:

Rent a bike and go for a ride

There are many points of rent, it’s likely that even in the hotel where you stay you can get one, and it is really nice to stroll through this completely flat and bike-ready capital. Even the City Council puts 2,000 bikes available to its citizens and tourists spread throughout the city.

The experiment resulted in an alternative movement that still exists today, albeit with slight modifications: now, for example, the sale of hard drugs or camping is not allowed. 1000 people live here in their colourful homes. Pay attention to the graffiti, the market, the wall paintings, the Greenland style house and the vegetarian restaurants.

Tivoli Park

Other things you cannot imagine finding in the centre of the city is an amusement park. The beautiful Tivoli Park is more than 100 years old. Here you can enjoy the well-kept gardens, attractions, restaurants, fireworks, outdoor concerts and aquatic shows of lights and colours at night. Its most novel attraction is the Himmelskibe, a carousel of 80 meters in height.

Kronborg Castle

In Helsingor, about 45 km from Copenhagen is a place known internationally as the scenario of Hamlet. The impressive Kronborg Castle is built on three islets and was no longer inhabited by the royal family since the late 1600s. No one knows if Shakespeare was in Helsingor when he decided to write Hamlet, but his decision says much of the importance of the castle at that time in which the city was a strategic maritime point.

And of course … the little mermaid

But only to realize that sometimes the most popular tourist attractions are not that amazing. The statue is small and disappoints everyone, but for some reason is among that iconic statue that symbolizes cities like the Statue of Liberty in New York and Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janerio.
