Munich – The Final Stop in Germany

Ah Munich. One of my favourite stops on my Contiki trip over a year ago. I loved the rather charming German city from the first time seeing it during the rush of my Conitki bus ride. At the time I vowed to return for the famous annual Oktoberfest festival. Although things didn’t end up going as planned, with Oktoberfest accommodation and flights being ridiculously expensive and booked out months in advance, I was still happy enough to be back.


At Königsplatz (Museum Square) checking out most of the museums here


A marathon was on that day. The atmosphere and live drummer band was inspiring

I watched the surfers for quite a while in the English Garden. And remembered how cold the water was on my last visit!


A traditional lunch in the beer garden


There were lots of buskers in the park. This particular band was amazing. So amazing that I actually brought one of their CDs


The next day I headed south for a daytrip to see Walt Disney’s castle. This is Hohenschwangau castle in this view


And Neuschwanstein Castle in this one


The inside was also pretty cool but no photos allowed


It’s almost my name!


The usual selfie

Munich was just a quick visit that ended far too soon. Before I knew it, I was heading to the airport and ready to fly to my next stop in Turkey.


Where I stayed: A&O München Laim Hostel
Price: €25 per night in a 6 bed dorm
Overall: Quite a new hostel. Literally had opened just a couple of weeks prior for Oktoberfest so staff were still settling into their roles and some equipment like the laundry was still to be installed. It was an okay hostel in a good location close to a train station. It still didn’t have the right friendly atmosphere so I never really felt settled. There was also a weird guy in my room who appeared to never to leave during the whole time I stayed. He just hung out on his bed watching his iPad the whole time and never spoke a word.. Hm..
