Little beats having some time off to recharge your batteries and relax, in beautiful and historic surroundings.

With a trip to Munich, you can explore one of the most important botanical gardens in the world, situated in the city’s leafy suburb of Nymphenburg. With over 52 acres, it features themed gardens, greenhouses and ponds. Don't miss the nearby 17th century Nymphenburg Palace, where you can visit the former bedroom of King Ludwig II and the impressive banquet hall. The surrounding classical English-style palace garden invites for a stroll. Elsewhere in the city you can visit the Frauenkirche, Hofgarten park and Ludwigstrasse, and with your CityTourCard, you're guaranteed free public transport as you travel between each beautiful location.

We have one prize available to win from the German National Tourist Office, comprising of a two night break for two in Munich, worth over £800.
