The Beloved arrived in Berlin right after my meeting ended and the following day, we caught the train down to Munich.
Of course the first stop in the train station was to get a hot leberkase sandwich. It didn't disappoint.
Munich is an interesting contrast to Berlin. The heart of Bavaria and more oriented towards tourists, I’m sort of glad that I wasn’t there when the weather was better and there were tons of tourists around. We stayed in the Isator neighborhood – just outside, and a short walk to the Old Town center.
The Old Town is dominated by the Frauenkirche – a massive brick medieval church, with twin onion-topped spires, and the Rathaus (city-hall) with its 19th century Gothic revival architecture (and the largest glockenspiel in the world).
As with most places we decided that the best way to get to know a town was to wear down a little shoe leather.
The Theatinekirche is a gorgeous rococo church along Ludwigstrasse. I hope this pic of the dome captures it a little.
We DID manage to come across perhaps a distant cousin while on our meanderings. Seems that cousin-Dieter (do you think he was on Sprockets?) is doing pretty well selling fancy men's clothes.
