1st stop of my Europe Trip is in Munich, Germany. One of my favorite places that I visited was Munich’s main square in the city center, Marienplatz, especially because the architecture was absolutely stunning! It’s such a beautiful and historic city, I highly recommend a pit stop if you’re ever planning to travel to Europe.
Not only is the architecture on the outside beautiful, but the insides are absolutely breathtaking. St. Michael Kirche in Munich, Germany is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen with vaulted ceilings and influenced by baroque architecture with gold literally everywhere. It’s one of the largest Renaissance churches north of the Alps.
As an American traveling the streets of Munich, I found that the city was safe. You can easily get from place to place with the U-Bahn (underground rail system) and you don’t fear for your safety when traveling via public transportation. There are plenty of places for you to shop, especially if you’re into buying designer handbags, shoes, etc. If you fly out of Germany with your items, it’s tax-free. During the winter time, it snows in Munich and plenty of people here go skiing on the Alps.
In a history class, I remember learning that many of Munich’s buildings were destroyed during World War II, however, it seems to me that buildings have been preserved and reconstructed to some degree. I was amazed at how clean the city was, yes, clean. In San Diego, you’ll see burger wrappers, Slurpee cups, and trash in many cities, but here, it’s unheard of. They are also bike and pedestrian friendly; pedestrians have their own lane to walk on and bikers have their own lane to cycle on.
As always, thank you for reading and until next time. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to drop me a message down below!
