Travel Blogs from Munich
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 …
The bustling Marienplatz Square is the epicenter of your Munich tourist experience, with Old Town Hall, New Town Hall, St. Peter's Church and many other attractions, but the most interesting aspect of the square for us was the gilded Virgin statue (here since the mid-17th century) in the center surrounded by the four fearsome cherubs--warriors …
Today was our first full day on holiday. Since i had chosen Munich as my city, i had planned everything we got to do today. Most of us woke up around 8 and had breakfast at the hotel. Quinn said they have everything from pretzels to cornflakes. we were all still pretty tired because of the 7 hour time change, but we were able to get our act …

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.
