On the Sunday of my mini-vacay in Munich, I completely forgot that everything in Europe shuts down on this day. I was going to do some shopping but with the shops closed I decided to go visit Nymphenburg Palace and I’m so glad I did.
I love strolling through a beautiful park in Europe. So the English Garden in Munich was my absolute must-do activity while in town for the weekend. What I love about a park stroll is the peace and quiet you find even though you may be smack dab in the middle of a busy city and the fresh air, greenery, and exercise is just plain good for the soul.
This past October I went to Germany for the Frankfurt Book Fair, and lucky for me I flew there a few days early to enjoy a weekend in Munich. I suggest you tack on a vacation day or two to a work trip any chance you get. I had heard many good things about Munich and I thought two days seemed like the perfect amount of time to get to know a little bit about this city. On Saturday morning, my first thing to do was head to Viktualien Market.
