|Nymphenburg Castle: summer residence of|
I saw the BMW showroom and museum, the English Gardens, and the city center. I ate duck with dumplings at a local biergarten and sausage with cabbage in a palace. I visited the local quaint town of Oberammergau (souvenir shops with cuckoo clocks in abundance). I learned the history of the Bavarian royalty while touring their different castles as well as more about World War II while climbing Eagle's Nest.
My time in and out of Munich was short, but enjoyable nevertheless. I can never get over the beautiful architecture adorning the streets of Europe, and Munich was no exception. I may not be the biggest fan of pork and sauerkraut, but every morning I looked forward to eating weisswurst (white sausage). Until next time, Germany!
