Perfect for Hiring Private Jets
There is more to Munich than beer even though every year its almost 200-year-old Oktoberfest draws some six million people to the Bavarian city next to the Alps in southern Germany, just above its border with Austria.
Museums, many that are considered finer than the museums of Berlin, are open year round but outdoor festivities and festivals, including Oktoberfest, are held in the warmer summer months.
Munich is on the Isar River in the German state of Bavaria. Many visitors are surprised at how stunning the architecture remains after being heavily damaged during allied bombing in World War II.
Many historic buildings were rebuilt, making the city center appear very much as it did in the late 1800s. Other famous architectural structures worth visiting are the Frauenkirche, a church that seats 40,000 and the Neues Rathaus (city hall).
Beyond beauty and culture, Munich is full of major businesses and headquarters. A third of the companies in the German blue chip stock market are headquartered in Munich, drawing many private business jets to Munich Airport.
Luxury carmaker BMW is not only headquartered in Munich, it has its own ZIP code (80788). Other large headquarters include Allianz, the world’s largest insurance company; Siemens, electrical engineering; Infineon, computer chip producer; and industrial gas specialist Linde.
Businessmen and women often rent private business jets into Munich to visit its aerospace (aerospace and lighting manufacturers Arri and Osram.

Events that draw elite visitors
Every year in mid-September, more than six million beer-lovers descend on Germany’s beer capital in planes, trains, automobiles and chartered private business jets to the world’s biggest and most celebrated beer festival – Oktoberfest. For 16 days, local Bavarian beers are served in more than a dozen halls that seat more than 100,000 lederhosen-wearing patrons at enormous wooden tables and benches.
The annual tradition started in October 1810, when an Oktoberfest was held to celebrate the marriage of Prince Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Therese of Sachsen-Hildburghausen. Everyone in Munich was invited. Those early festivals included horse races.
In 1896, breweries joined in the festivities, erecting giant beer tents on the grounds. They were so successful that beer-drinking has become the primary focus of the event ever since.
The beer that is sold is brewed only by local breweries to keep the festival authentic.
There are many local specialties to eat, too. In addition to the famous Bavarian baked goods, grilled fish and wurst are favorites. Wurst (also called weisswurst) are white pork sausages made from veal and bacon, and seasoned with parsley, lemon, onions, ginger and cardamom. They are usually served with Bavarian pretzels and mustard.
Does the whole even sound a little too lowbrow to you? There are ways to get a VIP package to Oktoberfest. Ask the concierge at your FBO for help arranging a day of VIP treatment so luxurious you’ll never be frustrated by the crowds or have to stagger back to your car.
Munich is home to FC Bayern München, Germany best and most famous football club. The team has set records in the number of times it has won the German championship and the German football cup. It won the UEFA Champions League / European Cup five times between 1974 and 2013. And, it won the FIFA World Cup in 2013.
Charter a private business jet into EDDM during the soccer season of August to May and you can watch the world renowned club play in the Allianz Arena.
Electronic Dance Music Festivals are very popular in Munich, which has more than Berlin, another EDM hotspot. If you are into dancing all night, ask your FBO concierge about festivals that might be going on when you are there.
- Nudists find Munich a welcoming place. There are many places to swim and sunbathe naked.
- The three-story Hofbrauhaus in Munich, which opened in 1589 and is believed to be the world’s largest pub, has a capacity of 5,000. It’s a beautiful and jolly place where beer is always flowing but it has a dark past. It is where Hitler gave his first speech to the Socialist party. Mozart and Lenin also quaffed a pint or two there.
