Is Munich or Berlin better to visit?

Germany’s capital city, Berlin is rich with history and museums. It’s also a much bigger city, more than twice the size of Munich in terms of population.

From limiting vehicle capacity to enhancing cleaning protocols and upgrading air filters, bus carriers are committed to maintaining a safe environment.
