A Rainy 24 Hours in Munich

After saying our goodbyes to Switzerland, we packed up, threw on our way-too-heavy backpacks and hopped on the train to make our way east to Germany.

Our time in Munich flashed before our eyes, literally. We only had about 24 hours in this city. We were eager to start exploring, but there was one tiny setback. It was cold, wet and rainy. You know, the perfect kind of weather to curl up in a fluffy duvet and binge on Netflix. I won’t lie, that idea was quite tempting and we even considered it for a split second.

I’m so happy we chose otherwise.

Munich was a fascinating city. So easy to explore, too. And so much to see. Historic landmarks. Hidden alleyways. Local markets. We discovered such treasures along these city streets. Even surfers (yes, surfers. Scroll down and you’ll see!) Let’s not forget about the delicious food. And amazing beer gardens.

While I wish we had a few more days here, I’m so happy we were able to squeeze in so much in such a small amount of time.

Before making our way to Munich, we took a detour to see the Neuschwanstein Castle. I was so, so excited to see this castle, as I had always seen stunning pictures of it like here.

Turns out, these pictures we taken from a pedestrian bridge that is now currently closed for renovations.

Ah, what are the odds?! For a hot second, I’ll admit, I was bummed.

But I told myself to suck it up and keep rolling with the flow. At least we were able to see it from the front, which was still gorgeous.
