The Bavarian capital is known for its family-friendly atmosphere and unique blend of modern metropolitan influences and time-honoured traditions. Munich is a city of laptops and Lederhosen. Leading European enterprises are based here. But Munich is also known for its fun side: once a year, everyone dons traditional Bavarian costume when the Oktoberfest beckons to the Wies'n beer tents and fairgrounds.

With the Alps just down the road, this city of 1.35 million is an ideal starting point for bike tours and hiking trips. Its proximity to Italy, Austria and Switzerland is also a great asset when it comes to sampling the cultural and culinary delights this attractive part of Europe has to offer.

Over 3 700 people work for the EPO in Munich.
