What trip to Munich is complete with out a beer at the Hofbrauhuas? Delicious German food, festive polka music, and phenomenal beer made for a wonderful evening.

Wednesday morning brought some rain, but we brushed it aside for a view of the Glockenspiel in the Marienplatz. This is the oldest Cukoo clock in Germany and still has moving parts. After the music, we whisked off to the BMW World and Olympic Park. We saw the Olympic Swimming Pool where Mark Spitz won his 1972 medals. After a quick bite at the Munich Hard Rock, we explored some more of the Marienplatz and Pedestrian Zone. We visited the oldest church in Munich, St. Peter's.

Steven's favorite piece: Thursday was spent in the Residenz and Treasurery. Jewels, jewels, jewels! I could not believe the wealth that was housed here. Declan was a champ throughout this museum, which also included a tour of the Residenz, where the royal family would live when in Munich. The tour of the house was astonishing. It's hard to believe that so many decades ago such intricate things were crafted, entirely by hand!
