The Olympic Park in all its facets
Discover Munich by webcam
The view over the regional capital Munich, its great outback and even the view over the Alpes if the weather is good - from the "Salzkammergut" up to the Allgaeu mountains - is unique. During the Oktoberfest, the earthTV camera shows the fun rides, especially the Ferris wheel. The distinguished silvery bright tent roof of the Olympic stadion of Munich is the perfect example of exceptional architecture. Among the sights of Munich are the Marienplatz with its new and old town hall, Frauenkirche (Church of our Lady), Karlstor and Stachus and of course Viktualienmarkt.
In September and October, the spotlight in Munich is on the famous Oktoberfest (also called "Wiesn"). On Theresienwiese, the tents have been built up months prior to the event - there are the well-known tents from Hacker, Schottenhamel and Bräurosl, Fischer Vroni and the Schützenzelt at Oktoberfest. The Wiesn has a long tradition in Munich - in 2009 176. Oktoberfest has been celebrated!

Germany stretches from the high mountains of the Alps in the south to the shores of the North and Baltic Seas in the north. In between are found the forested uplands of central Germany and the low-lying lands of northern Germany, traversed by some of Europe's major rivers such as the Rhine, Danube and Elbe. Germany is bordered by nine countries: Denmark, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Key aspects of tourism
Tourism in Germany is quite multifaceted: walking-tours in the mountains, beach holidays in the North and much more is possible.
