... documents on display in museums, where people can come and learn about the roles these documents played in the past. The city has plans to open a National Socialism Documentation Center in April, and there are mixed reactions about it's construction. Questions are being raised about whether or not a center like this necessary or not, whether having a center in an area that is so heavily associated with Nazis is appropriate or not, ...
... totalling 376 kilometres by car and 800 metres by water. Gertrude -our navigation system- took us via the scenic route. We weaves our way through the country-side crossing from Czech Republic, then back to Austria and finally Germany. At one point we found ourselves at a local ferry crossing in the Lakes District of Czech Republic. It was lunchtime and we had to wait an hour for the ferry attendant to eat his lunch. Life does ...
We are traveling to Salzburg, Austria today and the map takes us right through Munich. The girls have been so good and haven't had much of a chance to do things they really want to do...so we stopped at the Munich Zoo for a few hours. Getting there was a pain - parking in Germany is crazy! Tiny parking lots, narrow streets. Traffic! After waiting for what seemed like forever to park, we found a parking lot about a half mile from the zoo, then walked to the ...

Bob and I had been dreaming about a European trip for the last year. When I visited Mom in Minnesota in August and she put her wedding rings on my finger, I knew it was time. I returned to Florida and asked Bob if there was anything he wanted; he said "Maybe a new gun" and I answered “That ...

we had grate time, will come back !!!
We stayed here for a week and you couldn't ask for a better place to stay. The hotel was spotless. We had a junior suite overlooking the street. The room was gigantic! The bathroom looked like something out of a palace! The restaurant food was yummy!. Breakfast was yummy too!
The subway was just steps away. several good hotels near to sample their bars. The Excelsior is not in what I would call the most interesting area of town but it makes up for it in service and location to Hauptbahnhof!
Excellent hotel great staff
visited the excelsior hotel in the second wek of oct 05 for 3 nights in munich germany.
was most impressed by the hotel in every which way, the staff was excellent the concierge service was above par, and the breakfast and the breakfast room were both to die for and looked forward to the breakfast room every morning.the staff all over the hotel was excellent and the room was superb, did not have a good view otherwise i would have rated the hotel excellent but as of now above average.
will definately stay here again when next in munich.the hotel was also extremely central locationwise.excellent is all i can say.
Stayed at this hotel for 6 days during a conference. It is very centrally located - the central station is literally outside the hotel, there is a massive departmental store right opposite the hotel which is a great place to shop, the hotel is surrounded by cafes and restaurants. My single room was large, very clean and well furnished. Bedding was very comfortable and the bathroom was shining clean and full of amenities. The only downside of staying in Munich in summer is there is no air-con in any hotel or restaurant. But I asked for a fan and it was delivered to me immediately. Another good thing about this hotel is that the mini-bar is included in the price. It was very handy in the hot and humid weather. Breakfast is adequate with lots of choice. Staff is very polite and helpful. I would recomend this hotel and the hotel restaurant and especially the wine but do make sure that u book in advance as it tends to be fully booked most of the nights.
City Centre Quality
Traditional, but not stuffy, hotel perfectly located close to Hauptbahnhof, walking distance to shops.
Friendly, helpful, professsional staff. Room was large, decorated in a traditional style. Package included breakfast and free mini bar.
In house restaurant has a reputation for its winelist and you can sit at the pavement tables and watch the world pass by.
Munich is a lovely city, clean and friendly with plenty of parks.
My husband and I spent 3 days and nights in Munich, and made hotel reservations on the fly at the train station tourist office. We wanted something within close walking distance of points of interest in the city, since, having never been there before and only relying on a German phrase book to communicate, we didn't want too much in the way of navigating around Munich.
Excellent location (at the main train station, close to main shopping area and Marienplatz. Big department store just opposite the building), easy to find while arriving with a car and superb huge high-ceilinged room was really a value while travelling with a family. Minibar full of FREE drinks (soft-drinks, juices and beer). Huge and convenient bathroom. Valet parking, EUR 15 per day.
A classy hotel
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights Thursday - Saturday. The staff was friendly and professional, and the rooms were very large. I especially liked how the walk-in closet and large bathroom were seperated from the bedroom. There can be some street noise below, but not too much. The windows have outdoor blinds, black-out shades, and heavy curtains. If you like a dark room, this will accommodate. The hotel is situated on the edge of the pedestrian zone with a self-service pay parking lot directly across from the hotel. We would definitely stay here again.
The Hotel Excelsior was an excellent choice for our stay in May, 2003.
It is less than a block from the main train station, on the pedestrian mall, so is very convenient to everything central. The staff were freindly and efficient, and most spoke English quite well. The room was large by European standards and the bathroom huge and newly redone. We booked through one of the discount web sites so we paid substantially less than the advertised price. We highly recommend the Hotel Excelsior.
Friendly staff and centrally located. Rooms are large
and comfortable. Rooms facing the street behind the hotel are rather noisy with streetcars and other traffic operating during the night, Windows are double glazed but that really does not eliminate the noise. I have stayed here four times and plan to go back again this year.
