Unfortunately, our friends came right in the middle of an unusually long, cold and rainy springtime. There has been so much rain in fact that there have been floodings, declared state of emergencies, and story coverage in international news. So the original "Munich in Four Days" plan was thrown out the window and a new "Munich in Four Rainy Days" plan was enacted.
Yes, we did go to the most popular tourist spots in Munich but with only four days and a group of first timers, I thought these places were crucial to see. It is not easy for Americans to make their way to Europe and so sometimes getting off the beaten path is not the best option. There is a reason why certain places are packed with tourists and on the top of the Must See lists. Here is what we packed into our four day tour of Munich:
So there ya have it. Our jam packed, rainy, crash course of what is Munich, Germany. There are many hidden jewels to this city and surrounding areas that we did not get a chance to see, but hey, there is always 2014! Right guys, riiiiight?
Your Munich Travel Agent,
P.S. Husband and I regret to inform any potentially new visitors that the two of us will sit out on another tour of the Residenz. Two times in two years is enough for us. We will however, gladly wait for you in a biergarten as you tour the once Bavarian royal palace.
