Munich: A walk along the Autobahn

7/11/2014

Arriving in Munich, Germany wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. from first look, it appeared to be a large modernized city much like what you could find in the United States. Yet, as we ventured further into the city it became more magnificent. The first spot we stopped at was Karlsplatz Fountain. The mist blowing from the fountain was just what we needed to cool off on a hot day.

We walked through the Karlstor to begin our journey through Munich.

We had a couple hours of free time in Munich and decided to use that time to find munich residenz. We were on the search for a palace.

In the course of our search, we wondered through the Victuals Market. The fruit and vegetables looked so vibrant and fresh.

We then checked out a beer garden where they hold Octoberfest festivities. It was great to see everyone in their lederhosen and eating large soft pretzels dipped in mustard.

By the end of our free time we finally found munich residenz. I was glad for our final destination and for the sites we saw along our journey.

We were staying on the outskirts of Munich, in Feldkirchen, Germany. For dinner we wandered into a small town to get a traditional German meal at a beer garden. The food for the most part was good, except for the potato like mush on our plates. While at diner we saw a young child drinking a beer. It was so shocking. That was one cultural difference I was not expecting to see.

Once we left the beer garden, it was apparent that our bus had broken down. There we were, a ground of 16 girls walking down the side of the autobahn, in the middle of Bavaria where there is no speed limit.

    Hello! If you are still in München or intend to stay a couple of days more, there is a nice traditional Bavarian delicatessen, cafe, bar and restaurant – the famous Alois Dallmayr, Dienerstr. 14-15 in the very center of München, actually close to the Opera house (Bavarian State Opera). I believe that would be the right place to taste the delicatessen and cakes… It is one of my favorite places in München.

    In the same part of the old town (Marienplatz), there is the famous Dept. store Ludwig BECK. If you are (like me) the fan of the classical music and jazz – it would be the right place to be – they have over 120,000 titles and they are famous as one of the best music shops in Europe for decades…

    The authentic pret-a-porter fashion brand from Munich is the famous ESCADA at Maximilienstrasse 25 and there is their show room for both of their lines…
    My favorite shopping temple remains the renovated Dept. store Oberpollinger (Neuhauser Str. in the old town)…

    If you feel like having a glass of sparkling wine or simply a drink, there is a lovely bar situated in the hotel Bayerischer Hof (FALK’S BAR), located in the famous Spiegelsaal (Mirror Hall) dating from 1839…

    I would niether miss the Pinakotek Museum (some parts are now closed for renovation)…
    … nor the latest Tosca at the Bavarian State Opera (with Thomas Hampson as Scaripa)… nor the Lenbachhaus gallery!

    These are just some of the tips and ideas that may make your stay in München more pleasant, but there is much more to be (re)discovered in the capital of Bavaria.
    Enjoy your trip!
