Berlin may be the capital, but Munich's often more expensive. The secret is to stay slightly out of the centre - the public transport network is brilliant anyway so it makes little difference. Aside from the usual pull of the beer halls and day trips to fairytale castles, Munich has a number of lesser-known quirky attractions to explore. For example, you can climb all over the roof of the Olympiastadion, check out the BMW factory and watch surfers ride artificial waves in the gigantic Englischer Garten park.

Why 2012? Munich is hosting the 2012 Champions League final on 19 May.

I'll bide my time here until the Euro zone settles down. At the minute the Euro/pound exchange rate is Rubbish!

(£1.000 to €1.208)

Yes I agree, its time to book a family holiday in the sun.  Not a lot of point saving with very little return on your already heavily taxed money . Sick of other people making money on my investments and choosing not to pay out much in return blaming the economic climate. Working all the hours you can get and not getting much richer , take a break and enjoy some of the hard earned cash while you've still got it.

I totally agree with you ....but ...sorry I need a holiday !

There is a limit as to how much we need to be made to feel individually responsible for the current situation.


As for putting money into something with growth..... that doesn't happen at the moment. Interest rates are abysmal, house prices not rising etc .

So, sorry,  but this weekend we're  booking our  holidays for the next few months.

I disagree.  The Pound was around €1-50 2,5 years ago so it hasn't even gained a lot.  It certainly shouldn't be where it is at the moment.  It still makes holidaying in Euroland expensive!
Holiday at home in some of our own lovely holiday areas.
