    Well I just got back from Munich. Me and my wife and a few friends went down there for the weekend. I have been to Munich several times but it is funny how you look at things differently as you get older. I would never want to live in a Big City but if I had to live in a Big City it would be Munich. The city is beautiful and has a lot of flair. It mixes the old architecture and the new architecture wonderfuly and the city is just beautiful and fun to be in. It is now my new favorite big city.

    Anyhow yesterday we hit all the churches and took lots of pictures walkind around the city. For lunch we went to the famous Hofbrau House in Munich for lunch and a beer. This is the same place where a younger Hitler and the budding Nazi Party planned the future of the party and the take over of Germany. The atmosphere is wonderful there. We each drank a Litler Mug of Beer and ate some good Bavarian White Wurst and listened to the live band playing traditional German songs.

    Later that night we hit several bars and found a nice Irish Pub filled with Irish people and a live band. Drank some good Kilkenny beer there and just relaxed listening to music and watching England play New Zealand in Rugby.

    The next day we went to the University of Munich and the Geschwister Scholl Platz to the memorial for the White Rose and brother and sister Scholl at the place where they dropped the leaflets denouncing the Nazi Party and were later captured, tortured and killed.

    After that we hit the Deutsches Museum where we saw a Ju 52, Bf 109E, Me 262, Me 163, V-1, V-2, HS 293, Natter and lots of WW2 Piston and Jet engines.

    I will post pictures with descriptions as soon as the battaries of my camera are recharged.

    Well here are the first set of pics. I am going to break it down into several posts based of what the pictures are.

    Below are just pictures I took of walking around Munich. They show the architecture of many of the older buildings as well the churches and the inside of several of the churches. Munich truely is a beautiful city.

    We visited the Royal Crypt on Saturday.

    Below is the coffin of King Ludwig II. He is the King who build many of Germany's famous castles including Neuschwannstein Castle.

    I do have pics of many castles here in Germany. We did not go and visit any of them this weekend though. This weekend was just Munich.

    Here is the famous Hofbrau Haus in Munich. This is where Hitler and the Nazi Party met in the early days.

    It is a bit overhyped but if you are in Munich it is a must because you have to see it one time atleast. We sat around listening to the band play German drinking songs and ate good food and drank good German beer out of the litre mugs.

    After having lunch and a beer we went to the Royal Treasure Vault at the Residence or Palace. We wanted to tour the Palace but because of the 2 main rooms being closed because of renovation we decided to wait until next summer when we go back to view the Palace. The Vault was really nice to see though.

    I will not bore you with too much of the treasure so here are only a few pics of it. :lol:

    After a night of partying a bit in Munich we slept in today and went to the Geschwister Scholl Platz at the University of Munich. The Geschwister Scholl Platz is a memorial to the brother and sister Scholl who were members of the German resistance group called the White Rose. They were caught disperssing leaflets at the University Campus and the Gestapo tortured them and then eventually put them on trial and had them executed.

    After visiting this monument we went to the Deutsches Museum. It is a wonderful museum but unfortunatly one day is not eneogh time to view the whole thing.

    Also most of the Aircraft that are part of this museum are at an annex at an old WW2 Airfield that is on the outskirts of Munich.

    Also my batteries went dead so I have to wait until I recieve copies of the pics that my friend took until I post more.

    Until then here are a few pics that I took while I could.
