Touched down on the third largest city in Germany, the host city of the 1972 Summer Olympics, with the cutest city motto: München mag dich, which literally means Munich loves you.
On the first day, we had lunch at Dachau Station, KZ-Gedenkstätte,
in which our Döner (kebab) came in colossal proportions!
Our stop where we touched down at Dachau, Germany’s longest running Jewish concentration camp.
Heading back into the town center of Marienplatz is easy when you’ve got a Captain who’s very familiar with the topography.
This fountain reminds me too much of Singapore’s USS!
Having my mandatory gelato…after a long walk at Dachau. An immensely refreshing treat for the summer. Am definitely coming back for my winter gelato brainfreeze.
Have I ever mentioned that Nuts and Baileys is my new favourite gelato flavour?
Also bought myself fresh raspberries and strawberries for supper!
As with all European cities, I find their architecture very fascinating.
This is the Rathaus-Glockenspiel in the heart of Marienplatz.
Every day without fail at 11 a.m. (12 p.m. and 5 p.m. in summer) it chimes and re-enacts stories from the 16th century to crowds of tourists and locals.
Each story lasts 12-15 minutes, and at least 500 people were gathered in the square to watch the spectacle with us.
Munichers are famous for PORK KNUCKLES and really, it’s truly a mouthwatering treat 🙂

Was accumulating photographs along the way, and I’m really surprised I managed to snap so many…
Have no idea why the Caucasian men in this one became the main focus. Naughty camera.
This pretty much sums up our afternoon, lazy walks in the Munich summer heat, mindlessly appreciating the amazing architecture in the city.
