Stopover Munich

The trip from Bielefeld to Munich luckily turns out to be mostly unremarkable. We don’t get into any of the flooding related traffic jams – unlike the unlucky travelers on the other side of the Autobahn.

Neues RathausAfter a quick hunt for parking in Munich’s Old Town – the hotel’s basement garage is occupied down to the last space – and checking in to our hotel room we prowl the streets for a place to eat. Naturally, I forget to bring the freebie city map with me, so we’re left wandering aimlessly along the streets between Viktualienmarkt and Marienplatz.

We finally end up in the Zwickl restaurant at Dreifaltigkeitsplatz, lured in by the daintily decorated tables. The bedirndled waitress is cheerful and friendly, the Radler tasty and refreshing. I’ve had a better Wiener Schnitzel in Bielefeld, though. Maybe I should have picked the Pflanzerl (meatball) instead?

A free drink in the hotel bar later and it’s time for bed – after all, I have to rise early and refill that parking meter…
