Hello my Dear Friends,
Your correspondent was tired this morning, so I took it easy. Hotel Monaco has a wonderful
breakfast buffet, and so I had a leisurely breakfast, and spent the morning catching up to myself. Around noon, the sun came out and so I headed out to take in the day. I thought I …

Hello My Dear Friends,
I was sad to leave Rothenburg this morning, but I arrived in Munich at 1230, right on time. I had two
changes of trains, each with a four-minute window, but it was fine and I made my trains easily. Happy surprise! It was also the last leg of this journey that I’ll make by …
Photos may best tell the story of our experiences in Munich. Crusaders may have been inspired by seeing the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. These twin onion domes are the symbol of the city.
The Nazi's catalog of photos helped in the reconstruction of St. Peter's church after the war.
The New Town Hall was honeycombed with …
... another thing we have learned....meals are never rushed...the ticket is never presented to you until you ask for it...ah, the Europeans!! When we left, after shocking our waitress by requesting a picture of her for our memory books and a lengthy discussion between her and Christie and John about fancy cameras, we headed to the Rathaus, or city hall, to look up the man that Reverend Gottfried Reichel had been in touch with regarding John's birth certificate, Herr ...
... I didn’t realise is just how many concentration camps there were spread all over Europe, it blew my mind! Hundreds upon hundreds of camps, filled with millions of people who were treated worse than animals. It really made me feel physically sick. So, so sad.
But, Munich was begging to be explored, so we spend the next 3 days conquering it with our big brothers. And boy did we ever! Hoffbrau provided us with the hugest stein of German beer I have even seen – ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Monaco Munich
What a treasure to come to this charming little hotel after a long red-eye! Greeted by the hotel's chief charmer, Christine, we were happy to hear that our room was ready and waiting, even though it was not yet noon.
The Hotel Monaco is situated walking distance from everything in Munich, though its location is a tad "red light" and it can be noisy at night.
The wi-fi is a bit spotty in the room, but can be accessed in the common area.
Our room was delightful. Clean, cozy, and appointed with cherubs and hearts. Our comfortable beds were nap- and sleep-worthy, and the tiny bathroom had everything we needed.
The best part of this place (aside from the cheerfulness of the receptionist), was the breakfast! Set out in European fashion with no less than eight jams to choose from, hard rolls and pretzels, meats and cheeses, deviled eggs, several juices, yoghurt, muesli and fruit, the usual carafe of coffee, even Sachertorte! We should be full until bier-thirty!
A wonderful choice for the intrepid traveler who likes some comfort and a full belly.
