Here is a sneak peek at Anja and Alex’s uptown Munich engagement session. They are the sweetest couple and we had a lot of fun hanging out with them while getting some pretty photos.
And a few facts about this beautiful city I call my second home:
Munich – in German: München is the capital and the most populated city in the German state of Bavaria, on the banks of River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is also the third largest city in Germany, after Berlin and Hamburg, and the 12th biggest city of the European Union, with a population of around 1.5 million. The Munich Metropolitan Region is home to 6 million people. The name of the city is derived from the Old/Middle High German term Munichen, meaning “by the monks”.
Munich is home to many national and international authorities, major universities, major museums and theatres. Its numerous architectural attractions, international sports events, exhibitions and conferences and its annual Oktoberfest attract considerable tourism. Munich is one of the most prosperous and fastest growing cities in Germany. It is a top-ranked destination for migration and expatriate location, despite being the municipality with the highest density of population in Germany. Munich nowadays hosts more than 530,000 people of foreign background, making up 37.7% of the entire population.
The city is an eclectic mix of historic buildings and modern architecture, Munich having reconstructed the ruins of those historic buildings that have been destroyed in World War II while creating new landmarks of architecture. A survey, conducted by the Society’s Centre for Sustainable Destinations for the National Geographic Traveller, chose over 100 historic places around the world and ranked Munich as the 30th best destination.
