Trip Report Germany: Wunderbar! Our trip report

Jump to last reply

We recently returned from a 10 day trip around Germany – we saw fairy tale towns, castles, gorgeous palaces, elaborate churches and stunning mountain scenery. We also bought a car and survived the autobahn (the car handled the driving with ease; I was a bit more stressed. Holy cow, they drive fast!!)

We started in:

MUNICH:

Marienplatz – on our first, jet-lagged day, we loved just wandering around this area – with the tall clock tower and its gargoyles – and all the side streets.

Deutsches Museum – we spent most of our time in the basement, in the extensive mining exhibits – which were so interesting. They really showcased how difficult (and dark!) it was to work in a mine. I also liked the Altamira Cave painting exhibit here.

BMW – Welt: Factory tour, Museum and European delivery. The factory tour was fascinating – so much of the work is done by robots and it was spell binding watching them work. The museum had really cool BMW and Rolls Royce cars, but our personal highlight was our new car, which we ordered by European delivery. It was manufactured according to our specs one week prior to our arrival, and during the ED process, everyone gave us a warm welcome. Our car was on a spinning platform, kind of like how game shows showcase cars. During our travels, we put 900 miles on the car and it handled the autobahn with ease – the car is Sweet. His name is Chase. Vroom vroom.

X-Games – we didn’t attend, but these were in town the day after we arrived. My son is an avid skateboarder and one of his main highlights of our trip was when he discovered that many pro skaters were staying at our hotel. On our way out, we heard him greet two people – turns out he knew two of pro skateboarders in the lobby! Before we retired for bed, my husband walked through the lobby, to discover our son talking in the middle of a group of skaters. One of them my older son told me is a big name because “he is featured in a skateboarding video game”. It turned out that this guy won a gold medal at the Munich X-games.

We took our car first to

LAKE CHIEMSEE

Herrernchiemsee Castle: This is one of King Ludwig’s palaces. It is located on an island, and we took a scenic, short ferry ride there to tour it. The castle is unfinished but several rooms were modeled exactly on rooms in Versailles. (The brochure says that the rooms are “much more splendidly furnished than those in Versailles”). The Hall of Mirrors was a fabulous sight. Other decorations in the palace, including a porcelain chandelier, were jaw-droppingly impressive. Outside the palace were several huge, beautiful fountains.

This was our second trip to Germany and one our first, we saw Neuschwanstein and Linderhof – I highly, highly recommend a visit to King Ludwig’s castles – they are wonderful! (In order of preference, I would list them: Linderhof, Herrenchiemsee and Neuschwanstein).

We stayed in Bernau and enjoyed walking around this very small town. Our hotel had a lovely garden area. A walking path led to a small park/playground area. My boys liked the long zipline there.

Next stop was

BERCHTESGADEN
