Munich ©
Often described as the city of laptops and lederhosen, Munich is an international center of business, engineering, research, and medicine that still maintains a rich cultural heritage and age-old traditions.
Munich is known for museums, historic sites, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the activities along English Garden, engage your brain at Deutsches Museum, take in panoramic vistas at Frauenkirche, and steep yourself in history at St. Peter's Church.

Plan my trip to Munich with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Montreal, Canada to Munich is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Montreal to Munich. Expect slightly colder evenings in Munich when traveling from Montreal in July, with lows around 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Mon) so you can take a train to Dachau.
