We concluded the evening with dinner at the oldest working brewery in the world - Weihenstephan. The monks started brewing beer in 1040 (yes, that is not a typo)!! We had a delicious dinner and some tasty beer.

On Wednesday, we took a day trip to Salzburg, Austria...this will be a separate post.
Overall, we loved Germany. We were so thankful to have Chris with us the whole time. He got stuck doing a lot of translating for us : ) Munich was very clean and tidy. As I learned on the trip, Germans are rule followers (maybe that's where I get it)...they don't cross on the crosswalk when its red...even if a car isn't coming. There are a TON of people riding bikes, so you have to be careful not to get in the bike lane on the sidewalk or you will be taken out!! We called it organized chaos. We actually saw a biker get hit by a car...it was crazy. Thankfully, no one was hurt, although the bike frame was a bit messed up.
|Look at all these bikes!!|
I would LOVE to go back to Munich and Oktoberfest. Is it bad that I miss the pretzels?!?!
Oh...and I managed to use my HTS while in Munich...see:
