Vacation Recap Day 9: Munich

After we left Salzburg, we drove to Munich, ditched our car, and took the train into the city.  We got there pretty early in the day so we had plenty of time to get acclimated.  We stayed a short walk from Marienplatz which is a big square where the Glockenspiel is.

Entrance to Marienplatz

We found a restaurant to grab some lunch, but we couldn't quite decipher what was on the menu.  We decided to split the "Bavarian Special Plate" and ended up with a smorgasbord of meats, cheeses, and breads.  Some of it was really good- but some of it could only be described as "meat jello."

Frauenkirche in Muenchen.

We went into a couple cool churches, like the Frauenkirche (the inside is pictured above.  It's the church with the rounded double towers below.)

We then climbed 305 steps to get to the top of St. Peter's Church (Alter Peter) and took these cool shots of Munich.

The inside of the church was also so cool!

We caught another Football (soccer) match at a local bar, and decided to hit the hay early that night.  I have a confession to make though.  We went to McDonald's for dinner that night.  I know, I know...we're in Germany and go to...McDonald's?!  The truth is, I have a weird fascination with McDonald's in foreign countries.  I love seeing the difference in something so familiar to us Americans.  Don't judge.
