    Besuch in München

    May 17 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    26 Kilometer zu Fuss durch die Stadt. Es hätte eigentlich etwas Erholung von den letzttägigen Strapazen sein sollen - aber gut. :)

    Jour 1 - de Paris à Munich 🇩🇪

    July 30 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Voici les News du premier jour du voyage ! 🇩🇪
    Nous avons commencé notre journée par un réveil à 5h du matin, la nuit fut assez courte car les derniers réglages des paquetages se sont faits jusqu’à 1h du matin la veille 😅
    Nous avons pris un départ de Paris Gare de l’Est à 6h55 et sommes arrivés à 12h30 à Munich avec une correspondance à Stuttgart.

    Les vélos ayant été démontés la veille, nous avons dû les remonter à notre arrivée à Munich. Nous sommes ensuite allés déjeuner dans une auberge typique bavaroise des Rahmschnitzel et des Jagerschnitzel.
    Nous avons visité une partie du centre ville en nous baladant vers Marienplatz, le Frauenkirche, le nouvel Hôtel de Ville de Munich et l’église Saint-Pierre de Munich.

    La journée s’est terminée avec un dîner dans un restaurant bavarois / balkanique où nous avons découvert les Cevapcici et les Raznjici !

    Au final, c’était une grosse journée avec 13km de marche en plus de la fatigue du voyage, mais nous avons pu visiter l’hypercentre et goûter des spécialités !
    Toute l’équipe va bien dormir pour redémarrer en forme demain pour notre dernier jour de visite de Munich !

    Jour 2 - Visite de Munich

    July 31 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Aujourd’hui, nous avons visité Munich à pied et à vélo ✌🏼
    Nous avons débuté la journée par le parc olympique de Munich où ont eu lieu les Jo 1972. Nous avons fait une balade à pied sur les berges puis avons monté la colline qui surplombe le parc et la ville de Munich.
    Nous avons ensuite pic-niqué au bord du lac du parc olympique un des meilleurs Doner Kebab de Munich (verdict : excellent 😋)

    Nous avons ensuite passé l’après midi à parcourir la ville à vélo et nous sommes arrêtés en fin de journée au plus grand parc de la ville: l’Englisher Garten où l’on a pu voir des surfers et tremper les pieds dans l’eau.

    10km de marche et 20km de vélo pour notre dernier jour à Munich. Demain, nous traverserons la frontière direction Salzburg en Autriche ! 🇩🇪 > 🇦🇹

    Freitags spielte zunächst Lucy Railton solo, dann begleitete Kali Malone Stephen O'Malley bei seinem Stück "Les spheres". Nach einem sehr interessanten und informativen "artist talk" samstags spielten die drei zusammen Kalis Komposition "Does spring hide its joy?", die mich schon vor Monaten in Aarhus so begeisterte.Read more

    Deutsches Museum

    June 26 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Into Munich itself today and our first stop was the Deutsches museum. Think the science museum in London but 5X larger. They'd even built replica mine shafts under the museum which you could walk through.Read more

    looks a very cool place

    The rest of our day in Munich

    July 10 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

    Miles: 6.0 Steps: 15782
    Flights stairs: 7

    After we visited Dachau, and picked ourselves up off the floor figuratively, we headed out exploring Munich. Honestly, we could have just headed back to our hostel as it was so upsetting to go thru, but we only have one day here so didn’t have that luxury.

    We went over to the Olympic park, where they held the 1972 summer games. It’s really neat to see how these cities have repurposed these massive areas built for the Olympics. Munich has made much of it useable for the people today. Germans close down almost every building that can be on Sundays - and they are known for going out and enjoying themselves. We could see that today at the park. So many families out.

    Then we headed into old town - saw the town hall and squares. There are protests in almost every city over the Ukraine situation. Today tho I believe this one was regarding Bosnia. And it’s unbelievable how many pride flags we see in every country - love it!!

    Eventually we found ourselves in the very historical Hofbraeuhaus Beer Hall. It is over 500 years old - strangely, we started our day at a concentration camp and ended it at a beer hall where Hitler once stood. I’ve only had a sip or two of other peoples beer over the years - never enjoyed the taste or the smell. But today, couldn’t let Jordan drink alone so had my first! Figured why not start big … so had a full liter. Can’t say I enjoyed it that much, but didn’t hate it either. 🍺

  • Day14


    July 26 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Our first full day in Munich began with clouds and rain - the first we'd really seen. We hopped on a tram into the city centre and wandered around some of the sights, including the Odeonplatz where the failed Nazi coup, the Munich Putsch, ended in 1923. At the Neues Rathaus, we ate a huge breakfast including Munich white sausages, as the rain poured around us.

    The walk the the Deutsches Museum was equally soggy, and we had to queue in the rain for about half an hour for a ticket. However the museum itself was amazing, and B was in his element at the physics interactive displays (as well as engineering, flying, maths, etc.). We spent a good three hours before our brains were too full to stay.

    So we spent the rest of the afternoon touring the beerhouses of Munich - the HofBrauHaus (including some German musical accompaniment), Augustiner and Tegernseer Tal. The Hofbrauhaus was the most touristy (and well known) and was a heaving thoroughfare; the other two were rather more pleasant!

    Mullersches Volksbad

    July 27 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    We briefly visited the town of Dachau, including the lovely castle and gardens, before returning to Munich. We grabbed our swimming kit and headed to the public baths - a collection of pools completed in 1901 in a stunning baroque/art nouveau building. To swim for 90 minutes was just €3.50 and was fabulous surrounded by beautiful wrought-iron bannisters, fabulous carvings and paintings, and all surrounded by cabins and tiles that kept the original design alive.

    July 26 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Munich is a busy huge green city. Just a short ride from Austria. We caught the 10.56am from Salzburg and arrived at 12.30pm. We are in the third and final week of our tour and still walking about exploring and finding new places to swim.

    On Monday we bought a 9 euro travel card which will last us all week. We caught the tram and went into the centre of Munich and entered the 'English' garden which starts here and then slices 5 miles up the North East side of the city. It's named after an English garden due to its rambling style of woods which is true because it reminds me a bit of Middleton woods. In the stifling heat we try and find the river that we've read about that people swim in.

    After 30 minutes of walking and carrying bags we hear the sound of the water gushing through Stauwehr Oberföhring. Its a big concrete bridge and 'Isar' is the river that runs underneath. We follow a cycle track running alongside the river and down to a slope which opens out onto a raised pebble beach, acting as an island. We soon put the Barcelona picnic blanket down and submerge ourselves into the cold clear shallow waters.

    People are sunbathing, some are totally naked, some aren't naked. Kids are running around and it's a lovely atmosphere. There's a fast pace to the water which if you try and swim against it you just stay in one place not getting anywhere, it's great exercise. However, its not dangerous because its so shallow you just scrap your arse on the pebbles and stand up again.

    After 5 hours more families come to swim to cool down after a long hot day at school or work. We packed our bags and walked another 35 minutes in the stubborn heat through the Munich suburbs of rolling parks with trees and playgrounds and a random nymph statue: Daphne.

    Desperate to sit down and eat we found a local beer garden called Schlosselgarten. We were a bit disheveled and totally parched after our trek.

    When we arrived we were told they don't take cards. Standing in disbelieve with no euros and no ATM in sight I suddenly remember I've got some dollars hidden away in my purse which my best mate Bee gave me before we left.

    She said 'In the last week of your stay when your at the end of your money spend this on a slap up meal!'
    The waiter in his traditional Lederhosen nodded to at my request and we exchanged our meal and drinks for the international currency including tip at an agreeable transaction rate😉.

    We ordered the biggest two pint lager of Lowenbrau and a three course German meal. Here's the pictures of salmon and fritters. Pork steaks with some carb style noodles that look like sweetcorn (but arent) and a mushroom creamy sauce which was a food combo I've never tasted before in my life!

    Thank you Bee your money it went right to the heart of this beer garden!

    A full initiation into Germanic lifestyle.

    Art and cycle culture

    July 27 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Tuesday was an overcast day. We attempted a walk up a hill which only Stanley fulfilled and Iona and I went back to the hostel room. It was a lazy day. Yesterday was made up for it by hiring bicycles and seeing art. We visited the museum of contemporary and urban art. Original works by Banksy and Richard Hambleton's famous 'Shadowman' silhouettes.

    The whole of Munich is lent to cycle lanes endorsing a physical and mental health culture. Because of this we haven't seen any traffic jams. We joined this pedal power for a day it was amazing but apparently I went too slow... I was busy filming.
