... places we should visit if time permitted. We managed most of them.
Apart from yesterday we've had really good weather on this trip. Hot temperatures up in the early 30s.
Hotel WiFi still not very reliable for uploading pictures so, sorry, I'll do them when I can.
Tomorrow we've got 2.10pm flights so the day will be filled with getting to the airport and flying back to Bristol via Schiphol.
Check back soon for the pictures!

We walked around the Residenz area, but didn't really feel like going into another museum particularly one so pricey when we only had a few Euros left. So we just walked about enjoying the day.

We finished off our last night in Munich with dinner at another casual pub style place just down the Tal a little way from the Torbrau named the Zum Durbreau. Since Gary and I hadn’t really had any traditional foods other than lots of sausages and schnitzel, we decided to go with the Pork Knuckle or Schweinshaxe served with potato dumplings. It was totally delicious! The pork had beautiful crispy crackling just the way that I like ...
... and they dance to the song with the choreography, but they add their own style and flavor to it. It is really cool to see some of these people who dance with so much energy and passion.
So after the first time dancing, some people are eliminated, so people dance again, and again, and then there are finals (maybe that was too many "again"s, but.. yeah, it is a lot of times to have to dance to the same song.).

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Europaischer Hof Munich
Great Location, great price!
My husband and I travelled by train here from Nurnberg - it was very easy, especially being so very close to the hauptbahnhof. Easy access to Marienplatz and S and U bahns. Breakfast was great and room nice. We were on a high floor and did not have any noise problem. The pizza place right there was Great!! A nice quick and easy bite.
I would not hesitate to stay there again. Book early, directly with the hotel for the best rate. We paid far less than expedia, travelocity were offering.
i stayed in europaeischer hof few days before christmas. the first impression was negative, 'cause the lobby is very poor and aged, but the rooms were very very big, and recently refurbished. a lot of space and a very enjoyable buffet breakfast. the location is ideally, about 100 meters from hauptbahnhof, in the very centre of the city. the room was a bit noisy, but i was on the 1st floor and the traffic was very close. suggested
Really nice place to stay (if you don't mind the noise)
Would have given it a much higher review if it was not for the noise (stayed on a Saturday night). However, if that is not an issue, it is a great hotel and the rate was extremely reasonbable. Room was very clean and the breakfast had everything you need.
Good location and value
We stayed at the Europäische Hof on a recent trip to Munich. The hotel is located opposite the main train station and very convenient for travelers arriving by train and/wanting to make day trips from Munich. It is only about a 5 minute walk from the Stachus, the beginning of the inner city. Also convenient for public transportation. We chose the comfort hotel room and this is the best value. The room is comfortable and shows attention to details. In room safe very convenient, bath has shower not tub. Breakfast is excellent and served in pleasant surroundings. Good value for the price.
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights starting Nov. 29. Hotel is located across the Main Train Station and is very convenient. The double room we had was of nice size and the breakfast buffet was great. Will highly recommend this hotel.
Overall a decent place to stay for the price
We stayed at the Europaischer Hof at the beginning and end of our trip. There were four of us, and the first time we were given a room at the back of the hotel on the 4th floor. There was a heatwave so we had no choice but to open the windows to get some air flow. The noise from the street was pretty bad throughout most of the night. Otherwise, the room was clean and very adequate.
The second time we stayed there we were given a room on the 2nd floor on the front corner of the building (same floor where the breakfast is served). It was also a quad (they only have 2) and the layout was much superior than the first room. High ceilings, a large room, and although we were just one floor up above the street, for some reason the noise level wasn't as bad.
The buffet breakfast is impressive compared to most hotels. The staff is luke warm with an occasional friendly person, but by the second time we'd gotten used to that having travelled through Italy! There is no air conditioning because most of the year they don't need it, although the clerk said they do plan to install it in the future. One feature we appreciated was free internet use in the lounge. The location was excellent for us, right across the street from the central train station and just a few blocks from the Glockenspiel and Marienplatz.
We would definitely stay there again.
Great Location & No Complaints
First, let me say that the breakfast buffet was excellent. So much to choose from, it filled us up well into lunchtime.
Second, the location can't be beat. Right across from the train station and steps away from the central pedestrian zone. Even at night I felt safe walking around the area.
The room was well-maintained, the bed comfortable and the bathroom just right. We stayed for 3 nights in May, 2004 while on vacation. I would stay at the property again.
For the price (we booked through Expedia) I can't imagine one can do much better. Recommended.
Wouldn't stay here again for sure!
I really wouldn't recommend this hotel. The staff were rude, the hotel dingy and smokey, the rooms looked like something out of 'that seventies show' and the breakfast was horrible. I can't figure out how anyone would recommend this place. It also is not in a nice area, unless you are keen on kebabs, seedy internet cafe's and lingerie shops.
We originally booked with Hotel Uhland and made the unfortunate chioce of switching to the Europaeischer Hof because we wanted a non smoking room that was closer to the old town. When we got there they didn't have a non-smoking room even though we reserved one. We complained and got one the next day. Turns out that the hotel is so smokey the whole way through that even a non-smoking room reeks.
Knowing what I know now, I would stick to a smaller place like Hotel Uhland or The Platzl. The transport system is so good and the city is quite small, so you shouldn't worry about getting a hotel somewhere away from the train station. In all I would probably avoid hotels around the train station area.
Great location. Easy to find. Comfortable beds. Clean rooms. Good Breakfast. 0.1 km from train station. Very close to tourist informaion center.
Good, reliable accommodation
I strongly recommend this hotel at the prices charged by Expedia. The hotel provided us with a large double room, exceptionally clean, particularly considering the proximity to the railway station and the city centre.Clean showroom too!Thoroughly recommended!
