Round The World and other travels

A frequent flyer's collection of trip diaries

May 2007 : Munich

This was very much a flying visit to the Bavarian capital, which I had last visited properly (as opposed to just passing through) for the total solar eclipse of 1999. No such heavenly spectacle this time around; on the contrary, the uninterrupted warm sunshine was much appreciated! With not so much time available, my sightseeing activities were confined to a lengthy stroll through the city's central area. Unfortunately, the main tourist attraction - the so-called New City Hall, with its famous Glockenspiel - was shrouded in scaffolding.
