If you like beer, book a trip here now...like RIGHT NOW. The beer culture here is unlike anything I have ever experienced. I mean its 4 in the afternoon and people are chilling in the local beer garden sharing a brew with friends...does it get better?!
We started off our Munich visit with some pizza and beer...For some reason when I am in Europe I am all about the pizza. ANYWAYS. After eating and drinking we made our way to the beer garden, it was ADORABLE, just a little green hut you walked up to and picked up your beer. It was surrounded by picknick tables filled with people enjoying a brew with friends. The beer garden sat right in the middle of a market with Christmas trinkets...i was obsessed, it took everything in me to not go cray cray and buy absurd amounts of decorations. I limited myself to three holiday trinkets that are so CUTE.
The next day we started at Chocolaterie Beluga...all I can say is YUM. It is filled with all different chocolates that you can choose to make a hot chocolate. I chose salted caramel, it was rich and delicious. Tom filmed me drinking it, it makes me laugh every time I watch it because I am so obsessed with it...hahaha. Next we went to Marienplatz and New Town Hall (home of the famous clock thing.) We walked to Residenz Munchen, Konigsplatz, and did some shopping (obviously!)
One of my favorite parts was Hofbrauhaus Munchen! The beer hall of all beer halls. It was HUGE. The beer was literally bigger than my head...I ordered a fresh pretzel while we waited for our traditional Bavarian food dishes. They had a local band that played Bavarian music while you eat. One of my favorite parts was the beer locker, essentially you can buy a beer mug locker and store your mug there in between visits...i need that.
We called it an early night and enjoyed hanging out in our hotel room relaxing, unfortunately that evening I got some sort of weird sickness and threw up...but hey, whats a vacation without a little surprise.
First stop Munich Beer Garden. Duh. Priorities people.
