Munich, Germany

The City of Munich is located close to the Bavarian Alps in the centre of Europe. The River Isar flows through the town. On 14th June 1158 the settlement of "Munichen" was granted the right to hold markets and to mint coins. Munich was given the status of a town (civitas) in 1214. In 1255 it became the seat of the Wittelsbach dynasty. In 1632 Munich was occupied by Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden in the Thirty Years' War. Under King Ludwig I (25th August 1786 – 29th Februar 1868) famous buildings were erected the Glyptothek, the Old and New Pinakotheks, the Royal Residence, the Feldherrnhalle, Siegestor (Triumphal  Arch) etc. thus turning Munich into a major cultural centre in Europe. On 7th November 1918 Kurt Eisner proclaimed the Free State of Bavaria. In 1957 Munich' s millionth inhabitant was born. In 1972 Munich was the venue of the XXth Summer Olympic Games, and in 2006 one of the venues of the Football World Cup.
