I have taken this post from my other blog, It’s My Party
and moved it here since this post is relevant to my travel blog’s niche.
We visited Munich, Germany in late August of 2008 before my daughter’s school started. We had fun seeing the beautiful attractions of Munich and enjoyed our visit to the Nymphenburg Palace. The weather was great, not too cold and not too hot. The old buildings around the square in Marienplatz and Karlplatz were a marriage of old and new architecture. Just amazing! I don’t mind going back to Munich and explore more of it’s beauty.
Here are snaps from Munich and do hope that I did justice to the beautiful scenic spots there. Enjoy!
Above is the Rathaus, the new town hall located at Marienplatz. In the same building is the Glockenspiel, a very large chime and clock. It gives off a nice chime on certain times during the day
and we were waiting for the “cuckoo” to do its thing and for the puppets in the tower to dance.
Posing while waiting…
Finally, the chime went off at 11 a.m. lasting for more than 3 minutes.
