Holiday Inn The Holiday Inn in Munich

In order to get to the city centre, we had to take a bus to the train station, then the train to Marienplatz. Some days we tried to walk, and got lost, but the GPS was very helpful! On the last day however, we finally found our way around and walked to the train station!

We arrived at Marienplatz hoping to participate in a bike tour, but the tour left before we got to the centre. It was challenging to find the specific shops we were looking for because we do not read German and asking for directions was just as difficult. There were many, many people and fascinating historical buildings. Unfortunately, not being able to read German, we lost a lot of significant history of these beautiful buildings.

The HausBrau was a huge rowdy restaurant with loud live music being played by German people dressed in the Bavarian traditional dress. It was crowded at 3 in the afternoon. We decided to pass that opportunity……and went to Japanese lunch instead.

We did visit the Toy Museum which was in a tower and we had to climb the “lighthouse” stairs. The kids were not as excited as I hoped but I think that was due to their ages.

After a few days exploring Munich, with the open fields and wildflowers, we arrived in Tegernsee, which is close to the Austrian border in the mountains. It was absolutely gorgeous!

Since Mitch was working, the kids and I walked to the park, walked to the “town” and rode the water taxi across the lake. There was much to do, as it is a resort town, such as Mountain biking, renting bikes, taking a lift to the top of the mountain, hiking, and visiting a cheese farm. There was so much to do that a little pre-planning would’ve been helpful. Nonetheless, we visited the pool and the park everyday and had fun.
