Trip Report Advent - Germany & Austria

Jump to last reply

Just a few notes from our recent trip to Germany and Austria in early December.

We flew into Munich and spent a couple nights there.

BTW there were new ticket machines at the airport that sold both Die Bahn and Munich Transportation System tickets that confused a lot of folks. The lines were fairly long and slow.

We stayed at the Hotel Bristol near Sendlinger Tor for the second time. Simple hotel with a good breakfast (in a too small breakfast room) and a nice staff. We will probably stay there again.

We had a couple good meals. The first night was at the Augustiner Restaurant on Kaufinger Str. Food was good. Augustiner is my favorite beer. The second night we met a friend (Veronika in photos) at the Mozart Cafe immediately by our hotel. I had an excellent Bunter Salat Teller (mixed leafy greens and other vegetables).

We were there on Friday and Saturday. The Marienplatz Christmas Market was too crowded for our tastes. We also visited the Haidhausen community market. No great shakes but I really like the community atmosphere. On Saturday night we visited the Schwabbing Market. It was the most fun. So much fun that I failed to take any pictures?! I would recommend it for the craft booths and different feel.
