I would definately do München. I just finished working there about 2 weeks ago. Of course it is amazing working there during Okotberfest, but München is such a great city even when its not going on. I worked at Wombats Hostel there for almost 3 months and everyday I could find something new to do. And even if you get bored one day, citied like Salzburg and Vienna are just a few hours away. So definately do München. Good Luck

i spent this past summer traveling between both cities. Berlin is a pretty hardcore, rave type city and its a lot of fun if thats what you are into, Munich is a much more laid-back, "southern" type city and all of the people are very friendly. Everyone in Germany hates Bavaria because its so normal compared to the rest of Germany. I personally loved Munich and hated Berlin, but it really just depends on what you are into

Ditto. Berlin is awesome and theres something for everyone! Lots of great beer gardens but a great one is Georgenhaus.
