28 thoughts on “Munich: Heritage of the Bavarian Kings”

    1. It is indeed one-of-a-kind! I have been in many palaces but I have never seen anything like that. It would be fantastic to throw a party here 🙂

      1. For sure, if I can afford to rent this hall 😉 The place is perfect for party, don’t you think? It’s large, underground and there are two stages on both sides of the room.

    1. So did I! When I was there, the road between Neuschwanstein and Linderhof was under renovation. And it would take hours to take another route 🙁

  1. This brings back some fond memories of my trip to Europe more than ten years ago. Of all the places I went to, I stayed in Bavaria the longest since my cousin lived (and still does) in Nuremberg. I remember going on a day trip to Munich, which certainly was not enough time to properly explore the city. He parked his car near the Olympiastadion and we took the U-Bahn to Marienplatz. The view upon exiting the underground station is unforgettable!

  2. The Munich residence seems really cool and its ornate decorations remind me of some of the galleries in Vatican City. I can’t believe you went everywhere by public transport, it would have taken you ages! Neuswanstein would have been worth every trek though, I totally enjoyed it. 🙂

    1. Yeah it is a bit inconvenient 🙂 But it is doable, just need to do some research before travelling. Sometimes it is faster than by cars, especially for someone who has no sense of orientation like me 🙂

  3. You’re quite a storyteller Len:) I loved the intro part so much. I have been to Munchen a good 5 years ago, but I did not know that it was first a settlement built by the monks. Regarding Neuschweinstein, this is a place that I really have to see again. When we visited, half of it was in renovations, outside and inside :(.

    1. What a shame! Some small parts were still under renovation when I visited. But it didn’t disturb me very much. At least the castle still looks great from afar, especially from the Marienbruecke 🙂

  4. I loved the Residence and Neuschwanstein. It still comes back to me vividly every time I hear the song “Hide Your Love Away” by the Beatles. This song played as we descended the hill in our shuttle from glorious Neuschwanstein.

  5. Your photo of the Neues Rathaus is simply stunning. Munich is a marvellous city and in addition to its impressive sites, I also enjoyed just wandering in its extensive pedestrian zone. Although I have been to this part of Germany several times, I’ve never made it inside Schloss Neuschwanstein.

    1. I guess you are not the only one 🙂 Many of my German friends said they’ve never been there. They probably think that the castle is in their backyard so there’s no rush to go there.

  6. Your photographs capture the opulence and grandeur perfectly well! Wishing you a Happy 2020 and many more wonderful travels around the globe.
