Great thread!

My closest high school friend moved out to Munich for at least 2 years with her boyfriend, they are accountants and were able to get good jobs there.

I am intending to go and visit this year, depending on if I can get cheap flights...

Unfortunately Art's trip is a weekday other wise I would have tried to coincide!

Thanks again Richard!

SSShhhhh!!!! There are so many people that have not visited Germany (many unfortunately due to their predjudice). So let's keep it a secret how wonderful it is so we don't have to stand in line at our favorite restaurant.

Thanks for the info on Munich. Will be there in Mid Oct. Any info on Ruette, Austria? approx. 2 hrs by train from Munich? It has been suggested that we go there from Salzberg.. We'll be at the end of our 5 week trip..Munich is our last stop before we head home. Thanks

My husband and I are traveling to Europe for the first time. We have our airlines and accommodations worked out. As military reservists, we are saving some bucks. One question, we arrive Munich from the US at 8:30am. We plan to tour the city then travel to Garmisch (where our military stay is.) We have a rental, my plan is to take the train from the airport to the train station (in Munich). Enjoy the day. Return to the train station then travel (via train) to Garmisch for the rest of the week with the rental in Garmisch and Bavaria. My husband feels we should get the rental at the airport, enjoy the day in Munich then drive to Garmisch.

I have concerns about driving in Munich, parking then driving to Garmisch in the later afternoon. My option shows the convenience of the train would allow us ease, not to worry about traffic in a Munich and an extra day with the car in Bavaria (we have a 3 day deal.) I want to try the beer too. Driving and drinking don't mix.

There is a cost with the train, but it sounds minimal from airport to downtown Munich, tour the city, then to Garmisch. Is it that expensive with the trains? Cost between the pickup in Munich vs. Garmisch is $10-$15.

Your thoughts?

Richard, I enjoyed reading your trip report very much...but I didn't notice any mention of places to stay (I confess I did not read Part 2) I am going to Munich Dec. 6 until the 12th - any suggestions? Have communicated via email to a couple of hotels and am still awaiting availablity/confirmations
such as: Hotel Admiral, Advokat, and Torbrau (Torbrau,their quote, too pricey for me), any and all suggestions welcome,
Cheers!

I stayed at the Advokat and I loved it! It is a small modern, stylish hotel with a friendly staff and a great breakfast!

Richard,

Thank you for sharing so much insight with all of us planning trips to Munich (only 3 weeks to go!). I'll be sure to impart any information you may enjoy when I return. Your website is excellent and I can't wait to use it for next year's trip to Rome!

The weather will probably get better around March. Even then, it's possible to have snow. It varies a LOT so it's hard to say. Right now the highs are in the low to mid 30's (Fahrenheit) and it has been mostly clear.

Munich is nice. In fact Germany overall was very pleasant to visit. The people were very helpful. I think driving was the most fun for me. I live in Texas and people stay in the passing lane and go slow or won't move to let you pass.
In Germany I found driving very easy as most people adhere to the rules of the road. I absolutely loved the food. The pastries were absolutely wonderful.
It was great to practice my highschool German and to have people answer back in German. Anyway, I hope people make Germany a must on their itineraries. I do not think you will be disappointed.
