München - Part 3

After checking into our hotel, we did not waste much time and ventured out to the nearby attractions! I like our hotel as it's very near to all the attractions... all within walking distance! As it was the Easter Week, the place was extremely crowded.

Our first venue is the market place where all the excitement was. I can't remember exactly the name of the streets we walked through but it's near the Viktualienmarkt (The Victuals Market). There were a few churches, palaces and a huge park. We did not take any transportation at all and relied on our feets only! We walked so much that my feets were so sore by the end of the day!

There were quite a numbers of palaces and museums we visited but I can't recall their names. We visited the New Town Hall, Marienplatz, Residenz Museum, Feldherrnhelle (Field's Marshals Hall), Munich Court Garden and a few more.

I find that, there are a lot of wide green fields even around the city which is really beautiful. The churches are all so beautiful but the only thing was a few of them was under renovation during the time we visit. The city is clean and there are so much activities even after night falls.

One of the thing I observed is, there are quite a huge Middle Eastern population within the community. Even around our hotel, we can see many Turkish stores or stalls selling Turkish food stuff. At one point of time we felt we are in Turkey rather than in Germany!
