Munich

Well here we are in Munich. Our hotel is called the Hilton Munich Park and is on the edge of Englischer Garten and it's a lovely walk here across the park from the U-Bahn station especially as today was a glorious sunny Spring day.



Here are the rest of the family under a strange cubic sculpture opposite the hotel



I was there too!




Here's a picture of the park, a mass of colour!


We spent most of the afternoon exploring central Munich around Marienplatz. First we visited Frauenkirche the cathedral with onion shaped domes. Then we spent about an hour in and around Marienplatz, we ate ice creams and watched street performers, and I took lots of photographs of course...




Frauenkirche, this photo shows how incredibly tall this building is!



A lovely scene from inside the cathedral

A view across Marienplatz



This amazing performer balanced all those things on his nose while playing "Oh Susanna" on a clarinet made of glass.I would have loved to have had the chance to play on that clarinet to see what it was like!!



Tomorrow we are hoping to go out to Fuessen to see Neuschwanstein and Hohenscwangau Castles, meanwhile I will leave you with my favourite statue of today:
