Back at the beginning of the winter I went on a brief walking tour of Munich’s old town. It was the first time I’ve really explored much of the German city and even then, I didn’t see much. But walking through the pedestrian streets around Frauenkirche, I discovered that Munich essentially lived up to my expectations: it’s a very pretty European city. Gothic churches, wide streets, old architecture. With a healthy dose of modern commercialism in the mix.
Have you been to Munich? What do you think of the city’s atmosphere? My visit was just a short one with a healthy hotel breakfast, a brief jaunt through one of Munich’s parks and an afternoon exploring the Old City. I didn’t feel particularly compelled to explore much of the city, but I expect with a longer stay I’d find more to see. But, without a doubt, the city did impress me with it’s stereotypically ancient architecture.
