|Englischer Garten yesterday evening|
I am very fortunate to live in the Altstadt which is the old historic part of Munich and close to the city center. So love to take long walks in the Englischen Garten. The Enlische Garten is what the Central Park is for New York. Just a green oasis in the city.
You got to see the world famous Eisbach. I you wonder what it is: The worlds one and only river surfing spot. My neighbors are surfers. and every morning they go surfing. Yesterday it had like 30 cm of snow. They dont care!
Go to youtube and search for Eisbach München or Eisbach Munich. you will find some amazing videos.
|See the SNOW on the side!|
|It was really really cold|
So when I noticed I never took pictures of the Eisbach myselt, I went there yesterday evening after work. And guess what: people surfing. in the freezing cold...
Not far away from the Eisbach is the RESIDENZ If you want to see crown jewels go there. It is the former royal palace of the Bavarian Monarchs right in the City Center. From the outside it is not as great as maybe Neuschwanstein. Actually it is quite unimposing from the outside. I mean it is still a nice historic building but not as eye-catching. But from the Indside...
Another MUST SEE: PINAKOTHEK DER MODERNE
It is Munichs Museum of modern Art. Markus and I ♥ going there. Especially on sundays. Admission ist only 1 € then. How great is that. you're not supposed to take pictures of the Andy Warhols and Wassily Kandinskys and all the other great pictures. There are a lot of pictures. But the building itself is a piece of Art. Oh not to forget about all the Design objects... GREAT PLACE TO BE!

So this has to be enough for today. But I promise there will be a PART II... maybe about Food...
