Today’s destination is Munich, Bavaria’s friendly capital city. We will enjoy a walking tour of the Marienplatz with the world-famous Glockenspiel, visit the Frauenkirche with its “Devil’s Footprint,” and climb the spiral staircase of the tower of St. Peterskirche, the oldest church in Munich. Next, we’ll see the tomb of King Ludwig II in St. Michaelskirche before exploring the Viktualien Market. This 240,000-square-foot market has 140 stalls and shops offering flowers, exotic fruit, meats, spices, cheese, wine, tea, and more. We are in for a real treat for lunch as we dine at the famous Hofbraühaus. Locals and tourists from around the world flock to this bustling beer hall where the main area holds up to 1,300 guests. It’s a tradition for regulars to have a long-standing table reservation (the oldest regulars’ table has been held for the last 70 years!), and they can even rent lockers to hold their personal beer mugs. It is sure to be an authentic Bavarian experience! The remainder of the day is at your leisure to explore the area around the hotel.
