Berlin-Mitte


Berlin is a city. If one hasn't seen Berlin, one hasn't seen Germany.

Klagenfurt in Austria


Klagenfurt is a little town in Austria, very close to the W├Ârthersee. Many tourists visit this place, the restaurants are international, but one can find also a lot of Austrian ones with their desserts and sweet main courses.

The Frauenhofer


Finally I have found a true Bavarian restaurant for the vegetarians among us. Frauenhofer exists for decades. Today I had a look at the menu and to my surprise I found out that they have vegetarian meals also, African couscous i.e. This I do not have to write down: the beer is best in Bavaria should you like this.

Karlsplatz Stacchus


They have built there, I don't know for how long. Soon it seems to be finished.
I write about Karlsplatz Stacchus downstairs. I opened my eyes in gaze when I saw the result a few days ago. It looks modern. The new restaurants there offer more than fat sausages. International healthy food is available now. Some shops are new, some shops remained. It's worth having a look, better is to have some money in the wallet.

To start a walk from Karlsplatz Stacchus to the city hall is a recommendation.

Augustiner beergarden


The Augustiner Biergarten is one of the largest beergardens here in Munich. It is in walking distance to the main station or the S-Bahn Hackerbr├╝cke.

What is so very special here in Bavaria: It is allowed to bring your own food to the beergarden. Many do this. Only the beverages must be bought there.

During summer time it is crowded there, but who wants to be alone. Beautiful are also the huge chestnut trees that give shadow on hot days.

Herzogstand


On the picture can be seen the way to the top of Herzogstand. It is a mountain already part of the Alps one hour away from Munich. It is a path everybody, young and old can go. It takes 45 min to get to the top when you have taken the lift up first. It is a path for hiking for people who are no hikers.

During weekends traffic jams must be expected. Then it takes longer than one hour to get there. Nevertheless, it's worth hiking there or having a drink at the hut and restaurant. The view is gorgeous. It is possible to forget everything, the landscape is so beautiful.

Glyptothek at night, party time


During summer time young people gather in front of the Glypthotek and the "Staatliches Museum" on the other side of the street. Some bring their own beer/wine/water and food to have dinner there or a party.

This place is very close to the main station (15 min when you walk).
It's a good place for a romantic evening.
It's good to have a blanket to sit on it as the stones can become rather hard after a while.
