" Munich at a glance "

My travel begins at the heart of Marienplatz.
We arrived on a busy Thursday afternoon and
took the Metro S-Bahn * S8, *see last post *.

Exhausted and Tired, jet-lagged with terrible eye bags,
we wheeled our luggage along the cobbled streets of Viktualienmarkt,
obviously looking like tourists.

We can't wait for our hotel check-in and have some rest,
but only to find that we still need to wait for another hour or more,
because rooms were not yet ready.

oh brother...

Clearly it leaves us sans choix,
but to circle round the area instead,
we immediately head to the nearest supermarket.

The supermarche was just a few blocks away.
Good 'ol Tengelmann.

order of the day:
Chips, Junk food and more chips.
I've been craving for Chipsfrisch for sometime now. ^0^
I miss this, still do.

Bike stops


This was the first thing we ate,
the simplest crunchiest Bretzn we've ever tasted. *note on superlatives* ^-^
freshly baked for just * 50 cent euro *

The server was friendly enough to smile at our camera.
Looking at their menu,
they even have healthy Bio-wurst and Bio-Leberkäse.

We took our orders outside.


and shared a plate of : 2 Stück mit Brezn un Senf.
That is : * 2 pieces (sausages) with Pretzel and Mustard. *

German white sausages called Weisswurst = Weißwurst

eventually, I am starting to learn Deutsch especially when it comes to food. ^-^


In munich,
you can drop by any meat shop and order some of their ready made meats.
Like this:


we had this yummiest Leberkäse or
Leberkässemmel in town for just 2 euros. ^-^
It's like eating spam only tastier and meatier.
I guarantee you, it's mouthwatering delish. ^-^


Later that night,
after freshening up and skyping our love ones.
We headed to Marienplatz and was surprised at how beautiful it was.
Despite the cold,
The place was twinkling with lights and you can really feel the Christmas vibe.

we suddenly heard a few hums and accompaniment,
A team of church choir performing " O come o ye faithful" in German.
Oh, that was very inspiring.

I also wanted to share this LINK
In case you wanted to see the real time and view of the plaza via LUDWIG BECK's website.

So, there's more to Munich than Oktoberfest, Dirndls and Beer gardens.
In winter, every nook and corner is filled with Christmas markets - Christkindlmarkt.
which I will share with you on my next post. ^-^

  1. my eyes are salivating and not just because you featured food. munich is puzzling to me. i've seen a travel show and the munich they feature reminds me of vancouver. i hope i can find myself visiting it someday.

  2. Bonjour chère amie,

    Je ne connais de Munich que son aéroport et sa bière que j'ai dégustée !

    Merci pour ce très joli reportage. Vos photos sont merveilleuses.
    Gros bisous

  3. pc: i hope you do Maria,
    Munich likes to imitate, maybe that's why it reminds you canada. ^0^ it's like Berlin, only the people are twice nicer. ^-^
