Of all the cities we visited during our 5 weeks in Europe, Munich had some of the most fascinating stories. We took part in two different themed walking tours- one was a general tour of the Old Town and the other was all about Hitler and the Third Reich. It was incredibly interesting to learn about the city’s dark past and the secrets many of its buildings hold.
Now, I’ll confess that Munich wasn’t high on my list of places I wanted to visit. It got added to our itinerary mainly because we wanted to attend Oktoberfest. Although I didn’t feel a strong connection to Munich, I still appreciated all the stories it had to offer, even if they did highlight a terrible time in world history. (A great addition to the Third Reich tour is a visit to Dachau Concentration Camp).
Rather than tell those stories here, I’ll let you hear them on your own visit to Munich, where they are best told. Instead, here are a few pictures of Munich for you to enjoy!
