“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”
First adventure of 2017!
I’ve never been to Germany, so we’re off to Munich. Bring on the sausages.
It’s a wintery picturesque scene and we love it. I’m instantly enchanted as we walk around the beautiful city. The glockenspiel in Marienplatz plays twice during the winter, 11am and 12pm. Even in winter crowds gather to watch…but I have to say it is slightly disappointing, but cute in a clunky old clock way.
The snow falls and we turn in to kids and spend time in the English Gardens, walking in the wonderful landscaped gardens and throwing snowballs. The river runs under pretty bridges children toboggan down slopes. The view from Monopteros back towards the city is fabulous.
Food! We love our food, especially when travelling. Head to the beer halls or ‘brauhaus’ for a hearty feed and of course beer. Head down the Salt Road and check out the different brauhau, we particularly enjoyed Paulaner brauhaus for food. It’s a bit more modern inside than some of the other houses, but the food is wonderful. I had the pork belly…YUMMY.
No visit to Munich is complete with out a visit to the world famous Hofbräuhaus. Head there during the day for a more relaxed atmosphere or after 8pm when almost all the beers are only sold in 1 litre steins, there is music, dance moves and lots of cheering.
