Almost a year ago Mark and I decided we wanted to book a big vacation. We both wanted to go to Munich for Oktoberfest so planned our vacation around that!
We started off in Munich for Oktoberfest then headed to Berlin and ended our trip in London.
First stop, Munich.
Our flight left on Thursday evening, we tried our hardest to sleep on the plane so we wouldn’t be jet lagged when we arrived in Munich. We got in at about 11am Munich time Friday morning. We went straight to our hotel, took a quick shower and headed out to explore Munich.
We rented bikes and headed out to Nymphenburg Palace.
Mark saw this sign and wanted his picture taken with it
Then we followed the canals out to the Olympic Park
Where we checked out all the Olympic sights.
And the Olympic pool!
Checked out the BMW Museum
Then rode through the English Garden to the shops to get out Dirndl and Leaderhosen.
That night we headed to a Beer Garden near the Oktoberfest grounds. We had half chicken, beer and pretzels.
The next day we did Oktoberfest.
Ahhh, Oktoberfest, take me back!
The tents were beautiful.
The Beers were giant.
And the people were so much fun!
I’m so lucky that I got to experience this with my best friend!
The next day we rented a car and headed about two hours outside of Munich to Neuschwanstein Castle (what the Disney castle is based off of!).
The views from the castle were amazing!
Then we headed back to Munich, returned the car and headed to Augustiner Keller Beer Garden for Dinner.
Then we suited up and headed back to the fair grounds for our final night at Oktoberfest.
Munich was amazing, now on to Berlin!
