Munich From Above.
Since my friend Ines was going to attend a conference in Munich over the weekend, my mum and I decided to join her. We would check out Munich and Schloss Neuschwanstein, while Ines would listen to international design speakers. So off we were on a road trip to Munich.
What Ulli and I didn’t think of was the extremely (!) cold weather. If you go skiing or snowboarding, snow & cold winds don’t bother you that much but if you want to stroll around a city, -15° Celsius is not the right temperature for that. It didn’t take us very long until we decided that we’d skip Schloss Neuschwanstein.
I’ve never been to Munich during winter and I’ll keep that in mind for my next visit; the entire city (except the Altstadt centre – where we spent most of the time anyway) was empty, grey and unpretty. But I guess the city of Munich was not the only victim of winter-ugliness, so that’s the positive aspect.
Anyway, here are some impressions of our day trip to Munich:
