Day 4 & 5

We arrived in Munich by train from Frankfurt. The highest speed we noticed the train going was 292km.
We caught a cab to our hotel as it's quite a bit from town. Once we were checked in we worked out where the nearest train station was and made our way to Marienplatz station. When we came above ground we saw the glockenspiel town hall which was incredible, and the characters put on show at 11am 12 noon and 5pm.
We again sampled some local cuisine for dinner (roast pork and potato dumplings). And caught the train back to our hotel.
We got up early the second morning to visit the BMW welt which was pretty impressive and even had the car in it that Tom cruise wrecked in the latest, instalment of Mission Impossible.
Next we walked across to the Olympic stadium and took the elevator in the tower up 185 metres to an amazing look out - then up the stairs to the higher lookouts for a glass free view. It was very impressive. after that we went to visit the local soccer stadium as there is a huge game there tonight.
We also went and booked a day trip to neuschwanstein castle for after our tour ends when we get back to Munich.
Our tour group met up at 4 which then took us back into the city where we discovered the Hofbräuhaus (largest beer hall around) but as we were pushed for time decided we would come back here when our tour ends. Instead we found another German pub to eat at, where we tried a noodle/cheese dish unlike anything I've tried in Australia (topped with caramelised onion - was yum.
Now we're back at hotel about to watch the game - readying ourselves for our new adventures and next destination tomorrow.
