Munich is a unique and vibrant city in the heart of Bavaria. We start and end our ski weeks and our Slovenia tour here, so it seems a shame to miss spending time in one of Europe’s most beautiful cities without spending a bit of time there to absorb the culture and history as well as some great German food and beer. With this in mind, we want to offer you the opportunity to add a bit of Munich to any of our March 2017 tours.
Munich has a lot to offer. Historically it played a huge roll in German and European history. The Bavarian kings built Nymphenburg Palace in 1675, and it stands today as one of the most stunning palaces in Europe. The grounds alone are mind-blowing, no less the building!
Munich was also a key location to one of the darkest periods of history, as Hitler and the Nazis started their rise to power in this very place. We will be including in your package a 3 hour guided walking tour that traces the footsteps of Hitler and the Nazi’s party beginnings. It is a fascinating topic to anyone with even a passing interest in history and this guided tour will inform and interest you: guaranteed. We will also offer a guided 3 hour walking tour of the old city center, which is also included in the deal.
Our hotel is a Tyrolian beauty, family-run, small, and perfectly located. It is steps away from the Nymphenburg Palace mentioned above. This is a must-see icon and you can walk to it from our hotel. Also within walking distance is the largest beer garten in Munich, the Hirschgarten, as well as other restaurants and bars. The old town center is a short trolley ride away from the hotel. Breakfast is included daily.
Logistics: You land in Munich. Because people are arriving at different times throughout the day, we will not include a pickup at the airport. It is a short taxi or train ride from the airport to your hotel. At the end of the Munich tour you will be picked up at your hotel for the ride to the ski week or Slovenia.
Skiman and Deb will be doing the Munich pre-trip before the first ski week. No matter your itinerary, we highly recommend investing the time in this awesome German city. This will be Skiman’s third visit to Munich and he cannot wait to get back!
