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.

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.
