Your Munich holiday
Munich was founded in the year 1158, and was ordained with official city status in 1175. In 1180, Otto I of Wittelsbach became the Duke of Bavaria, beginning a dynasty that would last until 1918. In 1314, Duke Louis IV became the German king, and eventually the Holy Roman Emperor in 1328. Louis IV assured Munich’s role as an economic powerhouse by beginning the salt trade there.
Beginning in 1468, Munich’s largest gothic church, the Frauenkirche, was constructed. The 1500s saw the unity of Bavaria, and Munich became the capital city. In the 16th century, Munich became the centre of the German renaissance arts, but an outbreak of the Bubonic Plague killed around a third of the population in the 17th century.
During the First World War, Munich residents experienced difficult times, being bombarded by French planes, and suffering from a devastating food and fuel blockade. After the war, the political instability led to the rise of communism under Lenin and then the eventual ring-wing backlash by Adolf Hitler. Munich became the centre for the growth of the Nazi Party, and was eventually known as the Capital of the National Socialist movement.
Following the Second World War, American forces occupied the city as it was rebuilt after the devastation of the war. In 1972, Munich hosted the Summer Olympics when Palestinian terrorists assassinated Israeli athletes. Today, Munich residents enjoy a high quality of life and a stable economy driven by the prosperous information technology, and biotechnology sectors.
