Known worldwide for its famous “Oktoberfest” Munich actually has much more to offer than beer (although make no mistake, it’s an important part of the local flair). Situated in the southeast of Germany, the city serves as the capital for the federal state of Bavaria and as one of the main economic hubs of the country. BMW and Siemens are only two of the many corporate giants to be found in Munich. In fact, you can find all kinds of employers in and around the city - from industry to services, from media to banking, from large holding corporation to small digital startup. Currently, employers such as EY, Microsoft, TK Maxx, Societe Generale & GlaxoSmithKline offer jobs in Munich.
Between Neuschwanstein and FC Bayern football
The city and region look back at a rich history and the tradition is kept alive in the local dialects, the rich food, and the “Lederhosen” (leather trousers) that are worn by retirees well as youngsters. One of Germany’s most famous landmarks, the castle (“Schloss”) Neuschwanstein is located nearby and the closeness to the Alps makes Munich a great destination for skiing and hiking fans. The city is also home to one of the most famous German football clubs, the FC Bayern München.
