... renowned for its breweries, not that that interested me, but the fact that it was strongly Jewish during the war and of course were all rounded up and sent to concentration camps. This is an incredible journey thinking of and standing in places that are so heavily under the influence of nazi Germany. Prague is an amazing place -- the old, old buildings and huge, with many of the buildings under UNESCO, which means ...
... to the language barrier and googling on the Internet doesn't help bc everything is in German and so we have translate it on google translate. Hehehe. The joys of being in a country with not a lot of English. We are slowly starting to learn the new lingo and body language really goes a long way. :-) its been really fun, interesting and stressful at times. It's all an amazing experience and its really opening our eyes as to how other people ...
... We really wanted to see the area near Chiemsee, which is to the east of us and is supposedly a beautiful lake with another of Ludwig's castles on an island in the middle. We'll have to drive there and get a ferry to the island, but since tomorrow is Saturday, the rental car offices at the Hauptbahnhof are completely sold out of cars! Oh well, time to improvise - we found a car available at the Hertz location at the Hauptbahnhof in ...
It was not great to wake to 6 degrees and wet. Yet we are starting to think of this type of weather as being the norm and have no intention of letting it determine what we are going to do.
Today is Munich day. We are only here for one day and so we are going to pack every minute into it we can.
We set out after breakfast and headed for the Nymphenburg Palace. Why we decided to walk all that way in the cold and wet is anyone's ...
... Kim a top. Then, Haley and I walked back to our hostel. First we went to the wrong one, but we finally found our way back. We got ready and then we headed over to Springfest to meet up! It was so cool! There are rides, food, games, and of course, beer. We had so much fun! We hung out in one of the beer gardens and talked to the people around us and made some friends. We got some German sausage before we left (yum again) and then walked home ...

Historical Traveler Reviews K+K Hotel am Harras Munich
I have never been so annoyed by a hotel. Upon arrival you quickly learn that having booked your room via the Internet, you fall into what the K & K Hotel Am Harras considers "lowest class". The would rather sell their rooms at a much higher price, but since that is not working at the moment, they dump some of them off via the Internet. The staff was rude. I got stuck with unexpected charges which according to the literature in the room should have been included in the room price. The breakfast was mediocre, which is sad given the high price. The Internet service should be a plus, but the staff was working on it while I was there so it was unavailable for a few hours in the middle of a business day. The location is quite a schlepp too. Should have stuck with a more central location. Two thumbs DOWN!
Great location if you can handle the ride on the subway - a subway stop is located right nearby. The rooms are somewhat small, but must have recently been remodeled. There is free internet access in the lobby - which is a definite plus.
Nice moderately-sized rooms. Great breakfast buffet. Hotel is NOT in the center of Munich. However, it takes only a minute to walk to the subway/U-Bahn station and then a few stops on the train to get to the center of Munich.
Highly recommend Mike's Bike Tour around Munich. Very fun and efficient way to see Munich. Also, Mike's Bike Tour has a day trip to the Newschwanstein castle which is also fantastic for the active traveler.
Next best thing to being at the Center of Town
Located 3 easy U-bahn or S-bahn stops from the attractions of central Munich. Room spacious, quiet, pleasant. Breakfast excellent. Free internet access especially convenient. Staff courteous and helpful. Would gladly stay there again.
Wonderful hotel a bit out of the way
I stayed here for business and pleasure in November 1999. It was new or newly renovated, and the room was quite large. I must have had a suite, and there was a small sitiing area and a separate bedroom. The decor was simple but clean. The room and bathroom were extremely clean. The breakfast buffet was fine, and I think there was some hot food. I don't know the actual location of the hotel, but it was only 1-2 minutes' walk to the U-bahn station. It is a bit out of the way, and there is a limited number of restaurants in the immediate area. However, it is a short U-bahn ride away from the center of Munich. I can't remember the price since I didn't pay, but I recall that it was pretty reasonable.
Not central enough
I am unsure how this is a 4 star hotel...3 at best. The staff is very unfriendly, the rooms are mediocre (although the bathrooms are very big by European standards). It is far from the center plazas and in a more residential area. The breakfast was okay but the service was lacking. We had to beg for coffee every morning and ended up serving ourselves on more than one occasion.
A small hotel with clean, neat, but small rooms. The free internet in loby was great. The hotel resturaunt was only open for breakfast. Very few places to eat near by. Location is fair. You have to take the U for shopping, eating etc. But the price is what makes it above average.
Nice friendly hotel
Very nice hotel, steps away from U-Bahn and S-Bahn. Newly renovated rooms, very good buffet breakfast, hot tea or coffee around the clock, and Internet facilities for guests.
This hotel in the south west of the city centre is ideal as a base to explore. It is literally a minute's walk from the hotel door to the U-Bahn, which will take you easily anywhere in the city. Convenient for buses too, with several passing the front door. Hotel is modern and comfortable, has hot drinks available in the lobby for free, and unlimited internet access in the lobby for hotel residents. Excellent buffet breakfast. Warning : do not drive in Munich unless you absolutely have to. We arrived after dark, with a poor map, and finally located the hotel by pure luck and a massive amount of deduction. Traffic is very heavy at most times. This hotel has underground parking, and I strongly recommend that you put your car there for the duration of the stay. Cheap at the price, at 8 euros a day!
