    Day 47 - Massacre Scenes

    September 19, 2020 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    It wasn’t until 10am that we were up & checking out of the hotel. We returned to our car & set off to visit some sights around Munich that were too far to see on foot.

    First up we drove to the Bavariaring, the road that circles the massive empty concrete blob of ground in the western side of the city that is the official venue for Oktoberfest. We parked up & saw lots of police vans cruising around & small groups of men walking about. Today was supposed to be the first day of Oktoberfest 2020 & should have been full of huge beer tents & funfairs. Some people obviously thought they would attend anyway.

    Oktoberfest 2020 was supposed to have run from the 19th September to 4th October, but had been cancelled due Covid-19. It also explained why we saw a lot of people dressed in the traditional Bavarian outfits of lederhosen & dirndlkleid.

    We then drove a few miles to the south of the city to the home of Bayern Munich FC, where they have their training ground & club shop. There was a lot of activity with 2 club coaches outside, a Sky TV van & lots of fans. We were able to park up & take a few photos.

    We next headed to Schlosspark Nymphenburg, where the Nymphenburg Palace sits in expansive landscaped gardens about 4 miles to the west of the city. It was refreshing to discover that we were able to park free of charge. Nymphenburg Palace is one of the largest royal palaces in Europe, which is open to the public for a fee, but we decided to walk the free 299 hectare gardens with it’s sculptures & picturesque lakes. It was a very pleasant couple of hours in the warm sun.

    The next destination was the Olympic Park, scene of the 1972 summer Olympics, particularly infamous for an attack by eight members of the Palestinian terrorist group Black September, who took nine members of the Israeli Olympic team hostage, after killing two of them previously, and killing them along with a West German police officer. It didn’t end well.

    We got to the outskirts of the Olympic Park but our onward movement was impeded by barriers. We drove round trying to find a suitable place to stop, but all potential parking spaces were filled by families visiting a funfair on the site. We abandoned this idea & hunted down a Hofpfisterie or other bakery as we were now starving. We bought two lamb pies & a Danish pastry.

    We then headed north out of the city, stopping to photo the Allianz Arena, Bayern Munich’s 75,000 seater stadium since 2005 & home of Friday night’s massacre.

    From one massacre, we drove a further 10 miles north to Dachau Concentration Camp, the first Nazi Concentration Camp of it’s kind. It opened on the 22nd March 1933, shortly after Adolf Hitler became Chancellor & was originally built to house political prisoner. It became the longest running Nazi Concentration Camp & was finally liberated by US troops on 29th April 1945. Records show that during the period there was an intake of 206,206 prisoners and deaths of 31,951. The Camp was designed for 6,000 prisoners, but by the end 30,000 prisoners were crammed into it.

    The camp was also the SS Training Centre & the regime was a model for all other Nazi Concentration Camps. The camp was a work camp, but the weak & disabled were exterminated in the crematorium. Hideous experiments were conducted on the detainees to test human tolerance, including hypothermia & drinking solely salt water which were tests for the Luftwaffe pilots.

    We walked through the informative museum in the main building, then went out to walk amongst the prisoners barracks, two of which were still standing. We visited the memorial site and then took a walk through the crematorium, which was capable of being used as a gas chamber.

    At 5.00pm sharp, Das Fuhrer appeared & chillingly informed us that we needed to leave as it got cold at night with the gates locked. We think it was his attempt at German humour!

    Back at the car, we selected our accommodation for the night & drove to a very basic, but satisfactory hotel in a industrial area of Parsdorf to the east of Munich. I got told off for momentarily removing my mask from the officious receptionist.

    That evening we walked half a mile to a Bavarian restaurant & had a fantastic meal of pork & dumplings & pork schnitzel & chips. It was excellent, certainly one of the best meals of our entire trip.

    Therme Erding

    September 13 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    Die erste Nacht haben wir geschafft 😊
    Im Gegensatz zu Philipp und Clara-Marie , die relativ schnell eingeschlafen sind, hab ich doch noch länger munter im Bus gelegen. Gegen Mitternacht konnte dann auch ich endlich einschlafen. Leider war es eine eher unruhige Nacht mit Clara-Marie die dann auch um 5:50 endete 🙃
    Vielleicht ist es einfach die Vorfreude von Clara-Marie auf die Therme und das viele plantschen 😂

    Die Therme Erding ist immer wieder ein guter Start in den Urlaub, um die Gedanken runter zufahren, zu entspannen und in den Urlaubsmodus zu kommen. Obwohl ein großer Bereich der Therme wegen Sanierungsarbeiten gesperrt war, kahm Clara-Marie im Wellenbecken auf ihren Genuss. Wasser und plantschen ist halt doch etwas feines 🤣

    Wunderbar

    April 26, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Nachdem wir fast von unseren Vespas geblasen wurden in Innsbruck, gings fein und gemütlich zum Walchensee und dann weiter nach Wasserburg. Nach einer kleiner Irrfahrt, wegen fehlender Beschilderung (mal wieder eine Umleitung) tragen wir uns, etwas verspätet zwar, mit Alex in Wasserburg. Als erstes gings dann flott zu einem Kaffee mit Nussecke 😋 sehr lecker. (🤫 das kennen wir in tirol gar nicht😉)
    Dann gings nach einem kurzen Abstecher (Gebäckverstauung) weiter zur Burg Trausnitz.
    Wunderschön hier, toller Blick auf Landshut und dank Alex auch bestens informiert über die Landshuter Hochzeit, die alle vier Jahre stattfindet. Das sollte man sich wirklich mal ansehen, klingt sehr spannend und es wird viel Wert darauf gelegt das originale Mittelalter zu zeigen.... 😉 Wer also mal zufällig zur richtigen Zeit in der Gegend ist, sollte sich mal die Landshuter Hochzeit und die verschiedenen Mittelalter Programme ansehen .... Wir natürlich auch... 🤫😉

    Abends gings zusammen mit Alex und Christine zum Italiener hier in Buch. Es war ein wunderbarer Abend! Gut gespeist und viel gelacht... Wirklich sehr gutes Essen gibt es hier!

    Vielen Dank für den lieben Empfang und eure Gastfreundschaft. Es hat uns sehr gefreut, dass wir hier sein durften.

    Morgen geht's weiter,....

    Munich Flughafen

    December 9, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 41 °F

    First train of the trip. Airport to downtown. Or Flughafen to München Hbf on the S8 S-bahn.

    I think the car sign is for the Sixt rental car company. I should’ve looked in to trying that one.

    It would have been fun to drive one of those to Hallbergmoos!!!

    Erding Spa

    June 27, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Back at our favourite German spa for a well earned holiday. Unfortunately the giant pool is closed for re-tiling but it’s still a great place. Went into town to the beer festival on Friday evening. Five stages for music, thousands of locals, who knows how much beer. We had beer and wine and a great time. Headed to Austria briefly from here.Read more

    "Looking at this fills my soul with so much joy. I hope for everyone to get this feeling through a painting. "

    All hopes:
    • steam...build's up a cloud

    • One day I want to swim in a yellow sea and find a coloured island.

    • Hope of a never ending travel of my life

    • I hope for peace now even more than ever

    • I hope men can live with diversity in a good and esteeming togetherness.

    • I hope that all people will soon have enough food

    • I hope that everybody find his happiness!

    • Borders will crumble and be replaced with gardens for all to share.

    • I hope is coming a better time in this world, without wars!

    • The colours of this painting are so warm and hopeful. My hope is to have a charisma like this picture, so bright.

    • The commonwealth games has begun and my hope is that all countries around the world realize how important healthy competition is for the greater good of our species as human beings.

    • I hope love and understanding will always have more power than aggression and fear. Hope shall nourish humanity.

    • I hope to rise above the mundane and to look back in old age and see faith that has guided me.

    • It looks like a scarecrow in in a field and reminds me of my hopes to become successful and have a purpose in life.
    • This painting reminds me of chimneys and the pollution they emit. My hope is that the countries of our world come together to reduce pollution and save our planet.

    • This painting reminds me of a bird taking of for freedom. My hope is a world of freedom, so everybody has a chance to lead a fulfilled life.

    • Looking at this fills my soul with so much joy. I hope for everyone to get this feeling through a painting.

    • Fire has two sides. Fire can be warmness and energy, fire can also be destruction. The picture gives me The Hope of Energy to change things and thoughts.

    • For me remember at Paros, my sister and her husband, on Holiday, the sea, I love the sea...
