Munich is a city in southern Germany and the capital of the state of Bavaria. With 1 547 190 inhabitants intramural to 30 April 20193 and 2 351 706 inhabitants in its urban area4, it is the third largest city in Germany by the population after Berlin and Hamburg. The Munich Metropolitan Region, which also includes Augsburg and Ingolstadt, has more than five million inhabitants. Crossed by the Isar tributary of the Danube, it is located in the district of Upper Bavaria, at the foot of the Bavarian Alps.
The name of the city comes from the old High German Munichen ("by the monks"), because of the presence of a Benedictine monastery at the current location of the old town; Heraldry is also a monk. First mentioned in 1158, Munich became the home town of the Dukes of Bavaria in 1255 and the Roman Emperor Louis IV. In 1506, after two centuries of division, the principalities unified to form Bavaria. A catholic city - as Notre-Dame cathedral testifies, the main religious building of the city - it is one of the centers of the Counter-Reformation. Becoming the capital of the electorate of Bavaria (1623) and the Kingdom of Bavaria (1805), it became one of the main cultural, artistic and scientific German in the nineteenth century, under the leadership of King Louis II.
During the twentieth century, Munich experienced a significant industrial development, becoming the first economic center of the Federal Republic of Germany (1949-1990) then of reunified Germany. © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
