So, I’ve already told you about the wonderful beers that can be found in Munich, capital of Bavaria. In my eyes, Munich has so much more than just beer going for it. I found Munich in May to be beautiful.
My first impression of Munich was of its main square, Marienplatz, at night. I came back the next morning and found it to be pretty similar. The architecture is more visible in the light, of course.
There was a performance of a traditional Bavarian dance.
The city was grand but not overly imposing.
There were arches everywhere, outside as well as inside.
Even in the middle of the street.
But then, I found the gardens. And after that, I was sold on Munich.
The Hofgarten is a beautiful Renaissance garden in the middle of the city – the name means “Court Garden.”
The Englischergarten is a 1.4 sq. mile park that goes from the Munich city center to the northeastern city limits.
There’s a perpetual wave in the Englischergarten where surfers surf all year round.
Would you believe that this image is taken in the middle of an urban city?
No visit to gardens would be complete without flower shots.
Then I found the Alter Botanischer Garten. Of course, there was a beer garden.
I sat on a bench and watched these children play in the fountain.
Have I convinced you yet that Munich is marvelous?
