The state capital of Bavaria stretches almost 30 km in diameter across the middle of the Munich plain. Lying between the limestone alps and the Danube, Munich’s geographic location is part of the Alpine foothills. Expanses of forests and lakes, some located right in the metropolitan area, give the greater urban area of Munich a beautiful setting.

There is mountainous terrain in and around Munich, and on clear days it is even possible to see the nearest peaks of the Alps from the city center.

In fact, there is an altitude range of several hundred meters between the lowest and highest districts within Munich itself. Those who are not drawn to the mountains can always go to relax and unwind at one of the innumerable large and small lakes.
