Day two in Munich

There is so much to see and do in Munich that I am glad we spent two days here. It was difficult to choose where to visit today but we finally decided on The Residenz. It is the palace of Bavarian royal family. As you can see in the pictures the opulence is astounding. Besides the opulence the two things that made big impressions on me were the size of the palace (it goes on and on and on) and the fact that most of what we saw was rebuilt after being bombed to rubble during World War Two. Here are just a few of the things we saw.

The Antiquarium.

The state apartments

The Treasury.

A room with pieces all carved out of rock crystal.

And the Cuvilliés Theater. Everything that looks like drapes or curtains is actually carved wood.

After spending several hours at The Residenz we enjoyed beer and pretzels at the Viktualienmarkt beer garden.

For dinner we went back to Café am Beethovenplatz where we ate last night. All of the vegetable stands we have seen in Munich have been selling white asparagus. Tonight I had some with Wiener schnitzel and Duke had steak.

We ended a wonderful meal with our first apple strudel of the trip.
