Hol18: and that was it

Last few shots of Munich.  It was my favourite spot on the European tour – the beer, the weather, the very German signage, the beer, the architecture, the metro (clean and punctual) and the fact that every green space contains a beer garden.  I’ll go back.

Hol18: Munichers..

Munich was worth the wait after a three week tour around Europe.  It’s one of the more photogenic cities I’ve visited with plenty going on.  Here’s a few more shots

Hol 18: Marienplatz

As a central square and meeting /arrival place, Marienplatz is hard to beat.  There’s the large Rathaus, S-Bahn station, shops, all the beer you can eat and all the tourist tat you can buy.

Hol18: Munich – Daytime Drinking

Munich is all about the beer – there are countless places to drink – indoor and outdoor, particularly outdoor and even on a Sunday, when shops are all closed the drink continues to flow.
Viktualienmarkt round the corner from Marienplatz is a great palce to start.

Away from the main beer garden,you can always find somewhere for a beer when you see that exquisite signage or well turned out staff.
