The View From Munich

On our last morning in Munich we set out with no real plans in mind but – as is the case with most vacations – we found ourselves drawn to cramped, winding steps leading high above the city streets…

This month’s Travel Throwback posts are dedicated to a Bavarian adventure in Munich I took late last summer. So, grab a bench in your favourite biergarten, order a pretzel the size of your head and enjoy the journey!

(And make sure you catch up with what’s happened so far here, herehere and here)

Starting out from our hotel we wove our way through quiet streets and courtyards…

We popped into Hofbräuhaus am Platzl for one more look and experienced the quiet hush of the pre-pint rush…

And then wandered into Peterskirche (the Church of St Peter) – the oldest parish church in Munich.

If you’re up for it the 299 steps to the top the view is lovely…

From there our friends picked us up and we headed for lunch at Hirschgarten – a beer garden with something special…adorable deer!

Thankfully our friends came prepared with treats and so we were able to entice the deer nice and close.

I mean, c’mon…look at that tiny deer and his adorable face!!

Thoroughly stuffed (both us and the deer) we wandered around the gardens before hopping in the car to see the Olympiapark built for the 1972 Olympic Games .

There was a fairground set up and it took no convincing at all to get all of us (four adults and one mini-adult) up into the air.

It was a fitting end to a wonderful trip and definitely not our last visit to this vibrant, historic city!
