This Month in Munich:By
Do: Pay a visit to Nymphenburg - an upmarket area in the west of Munich which, for years, was home to Bavaria's royalty. When it's cold enough, you'll be able to watch people playing Eisstockschiessen - a local sport similar to curling - on the frozen canal leading to the palace. (Tram 17, Schloss Nymphenburg)
Sightseeing: Beer drinkers beware! The end of February sees the start of what is known as Munich's fifth season: the strong beer festival, which runs at all good breweries and beer halls from 20 February.
