I enjoyed Munich too when I visited. It's a shame you couldn't have visited both Munich and Regensberg! Regensberg is one of my favourite towns in Germany.

Looks like a great place to visit.

Michelle

I am loving it!!!!! You are helping me organize my next European visit! Thanks for linking up!

I wouldn't care about the car showroom but that Glockenspiel was wonderful! I thought they were real people until I read.

munich...a wonderful city to visit, it looks "to me" like you made a good choice!! when i saw the bmw picture, my first thought, it was in the wrong post - very modern for sure!!!

the clock tower/chimes tower (they are the same?, i enjoyed your stories - just enough details, i would love to see all of this!! i wish you had taken pictures of the food also, i'm sure it was yummy!! a nice snooze on the way home was in order, to digest your dinner and rest your photographers neck!!!

From Munich I have seen I don't know what, it was the shuttle drive from the Airport to the central station and then with a taxi from the central station to the hotel where we all arrived from different continents ! Now I know the Hauptbahnhof (central station) by heart I spent 2 h there, but I know virtually Munich by heart from all the TV series they make there ! No regrets. Riccardo worked there for 3 years loooooong ago.

It's always fun to see new places, even if you only get to see some of the touristy places, but it's hard when you have to choose between two places! Your photos show off the places so well. I know you are having a great time :)

Great post on 'My Corner of the World' this week! Thanks for linking up!

This is truly a great trip/cruise. I wish you could have done both cities.

Have a great week.

William Kendall

Wonderful shots, and beautiful architecture!

Alan Bates

So much fun you had. Germany is definittely on the bucket list.

I would have enjoyed the BMW museum. I drive a 3 series and when I ordered it, I wished I could go there and pick it up. That is an option they give you! Beautiful photos!

Munich looks lovely. It's too bad you couldn't spend more there. Wonderful photos, I really enjoyed the photos of the Glockenspiel Clock Tower.
Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day.

Penelope Notes

These historic building are works of art built to last and how wonderful to see them in person. The life-size figures at the Glockenspiel Clock Tower must have been impressive. I like the myth and wish it was true that a simple dance could ward off an illness. I bet the sound of the rooster at the end was magnificent!

What does the Skrnr look like, is it a cruise or touring ship, I wondered when you said it sailed. I'd think Munich would be number one on the list, I'm glad you got to see some of it anyway. I keep thinking how much time I've spent in Der Ratskeller on campus and looking at the glokenspiel by my favorite candy and popcorn places and how much of a German influence there is around here. It's funny you've met so many Germans in Florida. The BMW plant sounds exciting and that's more of how I think of Munich and Germany in general.

...Sallie, the long bus ride sure was worth it, thanks for sharing all of these great views.

I've enjoyed hearing about the vacation and your visit to Munich. Those clock makers were clever, not only the ones who did the mechanics, but the model makers too. That type of clock is very entertaining. The architecture around the square must have been wonderful. I can understand why the busy city was a little overwhelming after a long bus ride to get there, but you'll have nice things to remember about it as you chat to your friends at home.

Lady Fi

Munich looks fabulous!

Going there next week - but for work and for one very long day so won't see anything, unfortunately.

Fun60

A long day for you but a new city for you to enjoy. I am not familiar with Munich but looking at your photos has given me a taste of somewhere I would like to visit.

The BMW Welt is really stunning, must have been a great experience. So much interesting and beautiful to see in Munich - I enjoyed your post. Happy week Sallie.

Junieper/Jesh StG

BMW welt, showing off German's riches:) You now Munich always has been a place for tourists. "Ratskeller"(restaurant) is a term to signify that it was the basement of City Hall.
These bell tower plays are always cute and quaint:)
Love all the details of this post, Sallie! You saw many things in Germany and thank you so much for sharing it with All Seasons! Have a beautiful week:)

There is always a little discordance, it seems to me, when visiting Europe, between the fabulous relics of antiquity and the modern, shining structures, super highways and the like. I know which I prefer!

Margy

We tend to move through places we visit on vacation even if we aren't on a tour. I like taking it slow, but my husband always seems to be in a hurry. - Margy

Carver Sapp

Wow, you've traveled far and wide since I visited last. Looks like a fantastic trip.

Su-sieee! Mac

They certainly knew how to construct long-lasting handsome buildings. The coopers dance caught my attention so off to Google I went. According to one site, the plague was real. When all was clear again, people still hesitated to go outside. The coopers and butchers played happy music and danced in a plaza to show that the air was good. Also some butchers jumped into a fountain to show the water was okay, too. Brave fellows, they were. I can't get over the life-size figures in the clock!

Carol

Beautiful post - love the architecture.

Cathy Keller

Wonderful photos! I especially like the pics of the clock tower. Thank you for sharing!

Eileen

Hello, what a great tour. That is a huge showroom for the BMW's. I love the Clock Tower and life sized figures! You were able to see a lot in a little bit of time in Munich. The dinner sounds nice too.
Enjoy your day, wishing you a great new week ahead!

diane

Sounds like a great excursion even if it was a long way. We went to Ravensburg when we did that trip Munich wasn't an option but I had been there many years before . I would have enjoyed the BMW place.

Angie

Sallie - it's always hard to choose among these options - perhaps you will have another Grand European Tour and you can see the other places. Love the pictures of the Glockenspiel and its history. Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

ellen b.

How nice to enjoy the sites you got to see and enjoy a traditional meal, too. Love the architecture. I can understand why you weren't ready for another meal on board!

Florence

What an interesting city to visit. I don’t know which city I would have chosen, Munich or Regensburg. Probably I would have chosen as you did and gone to Munich. How fascinating to see the Munich Glockenspiel Clock Tower. What does a Bavarian dinner include?
Sounds like you had a fantastic time on your trip! I’m looking forward to the next installment!!
