The hubby has wanted to visit Munich so on our way to Sicily, we made a quick stop. It was a great place to recover from a sleepless overseas flight and briefly explore a sophisticated and cosmopolitan city.
No trip to Munich would be complete without a visit to Hofbrauhaus, perhaps the busiest place I’ve ever been. We couldn’t help but wonder if this establishment ever runs out of beer and sausages!
The area surrounding Hofbrauhaus is teeming with people shopping, browsing, enjoying being part of the crowd
or stopping to observe surprising street entertainment.
We had no agenda in the city, but the Nymphenburg Palace on the outskirts piqued our curiosity. What a beautiful place!
Some of the apartments in the main building were open for viewing and reflected the opulence associated with earlier times.
As lovely as the palace was, even more delightful were the grounds that provided incredible fodder for the camera!
At every step was a scene waiting to be photographed
and it was impossible to resist capturing the graceful swans
that in some positions looked like a sculpture.
The grounds were full of people enjoying a lovely fall afternoon so there was wonderful opportunity to capture unposed shots.
We had not intended to make Nymphenburg Palace our only stop, but it was such a wonder that we spent the whole day there. No doubt, there’s much more to see in Munich, but it will have to wait for another time.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

I love the pictures of Nymphenburg Palace and Parc. Lovely place.
We spent hours in the park. What a treat!
We have been traveling in Germany and Austria…it would have been funny to have bumped into each other on the streets of Munich. You definitely have to return to Munich, there is so much to see and do. Great food as well.
We should have planned a meeting!
We certainly could have taken you to all our favorite places. Perhaps in the future. 🙂
Wouldn’t that be fun!
Good to view your stop in Munich! Look forward to more.
