Munich is located on the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. With a population of 1.3 million it is Germany's third largest city.
The year 1158 is assumed to be the foundation date, which is only the earliest date the city is mentioned in a document. By that time the Guelph Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony and Bavaria, had built a bridge over the river Isar next to a settlement of Benedictine monks. Almost two decades later in 1175 Munich was officially granted city status and received fortification. In 1506 Munich became capital of the whole of Bavaria and in 1806 capital of the new Kingdom of Bavaria.
The city was heavily damaged during World War II and was completely rebuilt following a meticulous and - by comparison to other war-ravaged German cities - rather conservative plan which preserved its pre-war street grid. In 1957 Munich's population passed the 1 million mark.
used to be "Die Weltstadt mit Herz" (The world city with a
heart) for a long time but has recently been replaced by
"München mag dich" (Munich loves you). Its native name,
München, stems from an Old German word predating the word
"Mönche" of today's High German, meaning "Monks". Therefore,
the figure on Munich's coat-of-arms is a monk, and is referred to as
the Münchner Kindl, the child of Munich.
Residents of Munich typically enjoy a high quality of life. Mercer HR Consulting consistently rates the city among the top 10 cities with highest quality of life worldwide.
Munich has the strongest economy of any German city and is also the economic centre of southern Germany. Siemens A.G. (electronics) , BMW (car), MAN AG (truck manufacturer, engineering), Linde (gases), Allianz (insurance) and Munich Re (re-insurance) have their headquarters in the town.
Deutsches Museum, located on an island in the Isar, is one of the oldest and largest science museums in the world. A visit is highly recommended! The museum is very close to the congress venue.
