So what did we do in Munich? Well, we drank a lot of beer. We spend a lot of time in and around Marienplatz, where there are a lot of outdoor cafes and people, including many tourists, bustling and lingering about. Marienplatz is where the Neues Rathaus (the New Town Hall) is located, which was build from 1867 to 1908. This is a very Neo-Gothic structure that is fairly ornately decorated. We climbed up on top (well, not climbed, more like took an elevator) of the New Town Hall, which offered a great view of the city, and Munich from above is really quite pretty. There is also the Altes Rathaus (the Old Town Hall). Visited some of the churches in town (not very exciting) and checked out the Viktualienmarkt (lots of fresh produce and goods). There is a beer counter in the Viktualienmarkt where Munich's breweries take turns to serve their own brew. I am a fan of pretty much all the beers that I had in Munich! If I have to choose a favorite though, I am a fan of Hacker-Pschorr and the Andechser line of beers. Finally, ate at a few local restaurants, all pretty good, and visited the famous Hofbräuhaus, where HB beers flow like there is no tomorrow. I am not as found of HB beers as some others, but they are good, and so are Augustiner. There are still unfortunately many that we did not get a chance to try.
