Day 17 – MITTENWALD – MUNICH  [B]

Train from Mittenwald to Munich – the capital and largest city of the German state of Bavaria and home to centuries-old buildings and numerous museums. Munich is known for its annual Oktoberfest celebration and its beer halls, including the famed Hofbräuhaus, founded in 1589.  In the Altstadt (Old Town) is Marienplatz, a central square with landmarks such as the neo-Gothic Neues Rathaus (town hall).  At the Rathaus is the Rathaus Glockenspiel, reputed to be the most extravagant clock in the world – and quite justifiably so! Here’s why – the Glockenspiel features a clock face, 43 bells and more than 30 full-sized mechanical figures; the figures act out scenes lasting about 15 minutes from German history and mythology on several tiers below the clock face; built in the early 20th century, the Glockenspiel’s main purpose has been more about entertaining people than to tell time!  No wonder therefore its well-earned reputation!  The “show” starts at 11am and 12pm every day, with additional show at 5pm between March and October.


Day 18 – MUNICH: NEUSCHWANSTEIN CASTLE  [B]

Take a day-trip to Fussen to visit Neuschwanstein Castle (remember Sleeping Beauty?), the fairytale castle of “Mad” King Ludwig.  Fussen is at the southern end of the Romantic Road – Germany’s best known and most popular holiday route (stretching from Fussen in the south to Wurzburg in the north).  You can either join an optional 30-minute guided tour within the castle or enjoy the splendid views around this alluring castle at your own pace.  Within walking distance is the Marienbrucke (Marien Bridge) from which you can view Neuschwanstein Castle from a vantage point second to none.


Day 19 – MUNICH  [B]

Enjoy today and the next day in Munich at your own pace.  Beyond sights and shopping opportunities, do find some time to enjoy the gourmet F&B that Munich has to offer.  Head to Hofbräuhaus – a quintessential Bavarian beer hall – when you are hungry and thirsty – the ambience, the atmosphere and most importantly the food and beers served by Hofbräuhaus will almost certainly be a delightful gastronomic experience.


Day 20 – MUNICH   [B]
