Charlene and I had a wonderful trip to Munich, Germany to visit Elizabeth and Dennis. Munich is a beautiful city with tremendous history. We absolutely loved visiting the area!
It was especially fun to taste German beer and enjoy German pretzels. We enjoyed learning about the beers made in Munich as the community was preparing for Octoberfest.
I especially enjoyed visiting the center of Munich and seeing the famous glockenspiel. Each day at noon the glockenspiel plays music and the two platforms rotate with their colorful figurines.
One of my favorite photos is the picture of me and Elizabeth in front of the glockenspiel.
The food was wonderful, and it was an unexpected surprise to eat pork knuckle and the sauerkraut made in Germany. Both were fantastic!
We went to BMW World and learned they have Rolls Royce cars too. We were allowed to have a photo taken in front of a car that cost $1,000,000. However, it was no surprise that we were not allowed to sit in the car or touch it!
The walking man sculpture is one of Dennis’ favorite sculptures in Munich.
An unexpected surprise was to discover that there is surfing in Munich! There is a river that has rapids where people can surf by going against the flow of the river. It was very fun to watch people take turns trying to surf the river!
It was very interesting to see a sculpture that spelled Love when viewed from one side. However, the same sculpture spelled Hate when viewed from the other side.
We visited a Munich museum and were surprised to be able to see a beautiful painting by Claude Monet and another famous painting by Vincent Van Gogh. Munich has something for everyone to enjoy!
