The Sound of Munich

When you think of the stereotypical German experience, it's summed up by Munich. Located in the Bavarian region, Munich is incredibly beautiful, and around every corner you will find a brauhaus. A brauhaus is a wonderful establishment built on the existence of the sacred liquid that is beer. Also known as a beer house.

Bella and I spent our days in M√ľnchen strolling through the cobble stone streets, entering one too many beer houses and eating hearty Bavarian food. Can I just say, Bavarian food is probably ranked number 1 for Winter comfort food. They are quite big portions, but it's nothing compared to the colossal volume of the beer glasses, which we quickly grew accustomed to.

As for tourist attractions, we only really went to one. Bella and I prefer to discover cities and places quite casually. We visit the markets, the parks, we eat traditional food and wander around the town. It's a stress-free, spontaneous option that requires no planning and really makes you see the city under a whole new lens. One day as we strolled through the Viktualienmarkt, Munich's daily "farmer's market", we noticed a tall church tower, its balconies filled with people. 

"Oh my God. We have to go there Bella."

So we went. We walked through the cathedral first, and found our way to the entrance of the church tower steps. Many flights of narrow, wooden steps later, we got to the very top, and sitting patiently before us, was gorgeous view of Munich. 

See you in Berlin,
