Munich

Munich is the capital of the federal German state Bavaria and the third biggest city in Germany. Although the south of Germany (and especially Bavaria) is frequently considered to be very conservative, Munich is a sparkling exception with its many liberal artists, fashionists, and actually its history (Ludwig II. of Bavaria is said to be gay, the fashionist Mooshammer was gay). Munich is one of the cultural centers of Germany because of its influences from many different cultures - most prominently from Austria and Hungary. Munich hosted the Olympic summer games in 1972, at which the Jewish team was taken hostile by Palestinian extremists and 10 team members were killed. Munich is also very famous for its huge "Oktoberfest", that takes place every year from September to October and attracts around 6 million visitors. The main purpose of this festival is simply getting drunk - which is easily achieved by the consumption of over 6.1 million liters of beer.
