Munich (München) Germany - Part II

The pictures ENLARGE if you click on them.Neuschwanstein Castle was built in the late 1800's and is located in Germany in southwest Bavaria. The castle was built by "Mad King" Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to musician Richard Wagner. So while Catherine and I were in Munich, we decide to take a day trip to see the Neuschwanstein Castle. You can read more about this trip below.

Catherine in Marienplatz (Mary's Square) the central square in the city center of Munich, Germany since 1158.

The hotel (Hotel Uhland) where Catherine and I stayed in Munich. We had a really nice room, one of the nicest we had in Germany.

Me pretending to buy cigarettes from an outside vending machine in Munich. The purchase of cigarettes is pretty tightly controlled in where I live in California, so I thought it was interesting to see vending machines where anyone, including minors could purchase them.

Catherine interested in the sign for the German Automobile Club (Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club).

The main train station is Munich Hauptbahnhof (Central Station), in the center of Munich.
