We also loved touring the English Garden, a huge urban park complete with a beer garden in the middle. This was my personal favorite because the surrounding environment was so picturesque and calming which contrasted with the excitement of the lively beer garden. Another highlight of our time in Munich was a day trip to the Herrenchiemsee Palace which was definitely the most extravagant palace we saw. Although the palace was far from finished on the interior, we learned that the construction cost was over $250,000,000!

|We couldn't miss the famous Hoffbraugh beer hall. There was even non-alcoholic beer so I could join in on the fun.|

|Our favorite dessert shop - I got an extremely addicting mango tart and Jeff, after much deliberation, opted for a molten chocolate cake|

Our final stop of the trip was Rothenburg, a truly charming little city that really gave us a feel for historic Germany with its still standing city wall and many watch towers throughout.
|Picture perfect Rothenburg|
|This was our unbeatable view during dinner on our first night where we enjoyed one of our favorite meals of the trip|
|This view of the city from the city wall made us feel like we were in a movie|
