This Month in Munich:By Jill Henne
Sightseeing: Wander through Munich's Olympic Park and marvel at the spider's-web-style building constructions, which still look futuristic today. They were created for the Olympics when the city hosted the games in 1972.
Key areas: It's Spring Festival time! Taking a similar form to the world-famous Oktoberfest, this event on the Theresienwiese features a funfair and huge beer tents, where visitors can sample the local brew by the litre and sway along to the sounds of the Bavarian oompah bands. The festival runs from 19 April to 5 May.
