Munich, located in Bavaria in the very south of Germany, in close proximity to high mountains and beautiful lakes, is world famous as a high-tech hot spot and loved for its beauty and lifestyle. With its nearly 850 year historical tradition, Munich is the city for theater and music, film and literature, museums and festivals, but probably best-known for its annual “Oktoberfest” that attracts millions of tourists every year.
But Munich is also a financial and economic hub. With its 18,000 IT-companies, the city is Europe’s leading technology center; more than 100,000 people are employed in film and television production, multimedia and numerous publishing houses and advertising agencies. Global players like Apple, Intel and Microsoft are located in the “Isar Valley”, as well as companies like Siemens, O2 and BMW.
