5/29 – 6/1 Munich, Germany

After receiving a dose of Bavarian culture in Innsbruck, we headed to the center of Lederhosen, schnitzel, and Weisbiers. We were lucky enough to be accommodated by Fleur and Mike’s friends Marina and Margot, who set us up with their great apartment close to the city center.

On our first day we took a guided tour of Dachau. It was a humbling experience learning about the first and longest running concentration camp.

The following night was a little lighter, as we joined a food and beer tour to learn all about Munich’s great history of brewing.

Walls of Rittersports in the market. We tried peppermint, cookies and cream, chocolate mousse, coffee iced cream, olympia, and biscuit. Still quite a few left…

Trying the four styles of beer traditionally brewed in Munich on our first stop on the tour. Light Lager, Dunkel, Weisbier, and Dunkelweis. Nate’s favorite was a hopped up version of the Weisbier called Tap 5 at Schneiderweisse brewery.

The tour ended at Hofbrauhaus, a historic beer hall that seats 3,500 people.

A better view of the Rathaus-Glockenspiel, which rotates to tell a story for fifteen minutes at 11am every day. We missed it every day though, oops.
