I’m laid over here in Munich and I’ve been taking an impromptu walking tour of the city, which is compact and quite seeable in an afternoon without going too in-depth.
I found a lively beer-garden near the town marketplace. The beer is “Münchner Hell”. A half-liter cost me 4,20 DM and it is delicious. The Bavarians know how to make beer: this really hits the spot. I was a little intimidated by the full-liter beers; they are exactly twice the price of the halfs, so I figured I could go back.
Making reservations and getting a ticket to Prague was a challenge. I then found out that the Czech Railroad offers a seven-day round-trip border to Prague pass for 55 DM. I bought that and made a reservation for the train as far as Nuernberg, for the train had left its departure point towards Prague. (I found this out later; at the time I was just really frustrated that the only train that I really wanted to reserve I couldn’t.)
