Our final day! Sniff sniff.
We had a walking tour (there’s a surprise) with a lovely post-grad student.
An unexpected shrine to Michael Jackson.
I reeeally loved the contemporary glass and steel reconstruction of the bombed wings of this government building.
The beautiful Englischer Garten (English Garden) in the city centre.
Our good friends, who had visited Munich last summer, told us about the surfers in the river that runs through the Gardens. I couldn’t believe there were guys doing it in freezing January weather!
A subtle reminder of the Nazi history of this public building.
Our guide was mortified that there was a vocal group of protesters against the erection of an Islamic mosque. There was a huge police presence.
How great is the architecture of this stunning contemporary synagogue?
Well, FINE THEN, Munich.
Alas, it was time to farewell Europe and begin the looong journey home. We had an amazing time and it didn’t feel like it went to quickly as so often happens.
Phew, well this is the final day but tomorrow morning I will post one more quick wrap-up post that lists all the trip posts in one place for easy reference if you are travelling to some of the same places we did.
Til then, enjoy the rest of your day!
