Munich – 3 April 2019

Rick Steve’s Audio Europe has audio walking tours of several European cities. Today we did the Munich walking tour. It was great!

We started in the main square Marienplatz where we watched the 11 am glockenspiel, a clockwork party and joust near the top of the tower. One of the interesting parts of the tour was the history provided and learning about which parts of the town were destroyed in the war and rebuilt.

We wandered through the Viktualienmarkt and saw the blue and white striped maypole.

We saw the Jewish synagogue.

It was particularly fun to stop and have a beer and pretzel at the Hofbraähaus.

We walked over seven miles today and my feet hurt. But it was a really interesting and fun day. For dinner we ate at a nearby neighborhood restaurant, Mariandl Cafe am Bethovenplatz. I had fish and Duke had pork roast and dumpling. Both were excellent. There was a very talented pianist providing background music.
