Munich trip in photos – Christmas on Small Town Blogger

As the month of December is coming up, so are the various advent seasons in cities all around Europe. Since I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to go to Germany, I guess I can bring you some of the Christmas feelings from Munich in photos.

 

Pep shopping centre. Well, first of all, this was the first time I saw a Christmas tree made up solely from ornaments, so that was cool. And also, Primark! Yes, did some damage there…

English Garden with the Chinese tower was the first Christmas market kind of thing we visited. Took a lot of photos there, here are just a few that give the vibe of the place, I especially loved the old carousel, therefore my dramatic looking photo. Also, we (my boyfriend and I) ate chocolate covered grapes, weird but nice combo. 

Marienplatz is the central square of Munich, so the centre od their Christmas market and the heart of turist sightseeing tours. All of that comes to form a very crowded place where taking a photo is very difficult, but when you are determined to make your boyriend suffer until at least one good photo is made you come up with some usable photage. Thank you 😉 

Odeonsplatz is another big square in Munich, just a few minutes walking away from Marienplatz, but surely a lot less crowded, heaven for taking photos. Also, it is close to a Starbucks where we got a winter special in their cute Christmas cups. 

Well, going to an all you can eat Asian restaurant isn’t really a Christmasy and/or a bavarian thing to do, but it certainly is fitting after a day of endless walks over the town and into several public transport choices Munich has to offer. Sushi and seafood certainly are my comfort food, whereas my boyfriend was more set on “real” meat. 

Yes, that’s all. A quick where have I been update thourgh photos. Next Christmas post coming up Thursday or Friday, until then check out my insta for more of my content. 

Munich travel diary

As promised, I am publishing photos from my Munich travel. This will be a short post with mostly photos and where they were taken.

The first and most amazing sight we (my boyfriend and I) went to see is the Nymphenburg castle. Amazing architectural accomplishments and magnificent exterior are definitely what makes this castle worth seeing. We also had lunch in their Palmhaus (translated Palmtreehouse) and ate an amazing burger called Nymphenburger, in honor of the place. The castle is surrounded by lakes which are full of swans and ducks, so naturally, this is a great place to get photos.

Next, we went shopping in the city center known as Marienplatz. It is shops on shops everywhere you look and if you are a shopaholic you almost forget about everything else that place has to offer. Amazing cathedral, and small interesting sites worth photographing like these lions and that beautiful golden-yellow door. Of course, I took the chance of going to Starbucks since there isn’t one in Croatia. I drank the strawberry and cream cappuccino and they actually got my name right, my boyfriend, on the other hand, drank a chamomile tea, probably the best chamomile tea we both ever tried. Well done Starbucks!!

Lastly, I also took a chance to try the notorious new Kinder Bueno ice cream. It really doesn’t remind of anything like the candy with whom it shares the name but it’s still good. Just good, so don’t kill each other for it!!

All in all my trip was lovely and interesting. I got sick on my last day and I lost my ID on the first day (yes, I am that stupid, but they found it a few days after I got back to Croatia with a pass from Croatian embassy), but nonetheless, I had a great time because I was in great company!!
