Munich: Day 2

Waking up to our first snow in six years.

This morning we woke to snow falling and about 4 inches of snow already on the ground.  We got all bundled up and headed out for another day of sight-seeing.  Surprisingly, it was warmer today than yesterday, which allowed us to stay out all day.  We didn’t last too long in the 20ºF weather the day before.

Gluhwein #1

We headed straight to the Christmas Market at Marienplatz and began our eating-fest.  First up potato pancakes fried in… lard.  Next stop, bratwurst in rolls, and finally gluhwein (mulled red wine), which we can’t seem to get enough of!

A much different scene than yesterday.

Bring on the brats.

Bring on the brats.

Tomorrow we’re heading to Berchtesgaden to visit Steve’s family.  After walking 4 miles in the snow today, we’re looking forward to a 2 ½ hour train ride through the Bavarian alps.

Some very healthy potato pancakes

  1. Hey Guys,
    Sounds like a great time. We need to do Hanoi together someday. Missy (as usual) found a host of small, quaint, expensive places to eat that are not conducive to children, so we’ll come solo next time. : ) Don’t tell the kids.
    Stay warm.
