The beautiful European city frozen in time that’s also one of the safest | Europe | Travel

At this time of year, thousands of Britons are either beginning to go on holiday or planning where to travel this summer.

One of the most important factors in deciding where to go on holiday for some can be how safe it is. Feeling unsafe can be key in making a holiday memorable for the wrong rather than the right reasons.

The city of Munich has been listed as one of the safest cities in the world in data from CEO World.

Their data shows that it is the 10th safest city in the world, behind Bern, The Hague, Muscat, Ras al-Khaimah, Dubai, Ajman, Doha, Taipei, and Abu Dhabi.

Each city was scored out of 100 with factors such as levels of crime deciding how safe or unsafe a place was.

Munich scored 96.67, a high score compared with places such as Chicago and Marseille which scored 53.49 and 53.87 respectively.

In what makes a city safe, CEOWorld said: “Some cities around the world have a higher crime rate than others, which can put a damper on your trip. However, there are many safe urban areas that you can visit or stay in with peace of mind while exploring the sights, sounds, and culture of your chosen destination.

“The world’s safest cities have low crime rates, making them ideal for tourists and residents. Strong policing, security measures, and stable governments also contribute to these safe cities’ high safety levels.”

Once you land in Munich, there are plenty of things to see and do including going for breakfast at Schneider Brauhaus, walking around the 1972 Olympic Village, surfing at Eisbach and walking around the Glockenbachviertel district.

TimeOut was full of praise for Munich. They said: “The best things to do in this city are a dizzying mix of elite museums, hearty food and tumultuous history.

“Munich is also of course one of Europe’s great beer cities, with the taverns and bars well worth tapping into – even if it’s out of Oktoberfest season.

“Munich is a cultural powerhouse, both inside and out, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled while wandering the streets. You’ll spy plenty of grand buildings and elegant facades, the result of a carefully executed reconstruction plan following the devastation of World War II, as well as hidden street art, impressive contemporary architecture and new spaces, unlike anything you might expect from this Bavarian hub.”

Fellow travellers were full of praise for the city on TripAdvisor too. Jermaine M said: “One of the first reasons that many visitors come to Munich is the world-famous Oktoberfest, but while Munich beers are definitely excellent, the city offers much more to discover — both in winter and in summer — including the charming historical center, the beautiful green areas, and many art galleries.”

“Bavarians just know how to take good care of their environment! Take for example the beautiful urban parks where you can enjoy a variety of different sports, or just relax after work in clean, peaceful surroundings.

“Furthermore, Munich is only a one-hour train ride away from the Alps and beautiful lake regions. In short, anybody who loves nature and outdoor activities is bound to love Munich!”
