Postcards from Liechtenstein to Munich

A very quick and sweet postcard post driving through a tiny landlocked German-speaking country of Liechtenstein stopping briefly for a pitstop, before then heading for the second time into German terrain – the capital of Germany: Munich. We last saw Germany at Cologne and the small town St Goar on the Rhine.

Munich is home to the infamous Oktoberfest initially started out as a royal wedding celebration in 1810 that has now become a yearly two week long festival that celebrates beer. I personally would not go when there are an extra several million people in town, and would much rather enjoy the many Hofbräuhaus’s with a bit of peace and space, but for the big beer fanatics this is the ultimate fair. Note. beers are conventionally drunk by the litre or half litres, so don’t expect to easily get a small serving.

Plenty of moreish, rustic food to go with all the locally brewed beers.  Huge pork hock [pictured above], and one of the most famous beer halls – the Hofbräuhaus am Platzl [pictured below].

Just as we leave behind the giant pints of beer and heading towards Italy, we are greeted by beautiful yet freakish snow fall right on the border with Austria (between Tegernsee and Achensee).
