Day 2
Munich | The “Village of a Million People”

Set out on a walking tour of historic Munich, seeing its multitude of shops, markets and bustling beer halls, among them the famous Hofbrauhaus. Arriving in the heart of the city, see the Marienplatz, a large open square where the Old and the neo-Gothic New Town Halls (Rathaus) are located. The latter features the famous Glockenspiel, a chiming clock that re-enacts two stories from Munich's history with life-sized characters. Nearby, discover emblematic Frauenkirche, Munich's Gothic cathedral, its twin towers topped with domes rather than spires.
