Hello everyone, thank you for taking your time to read this post.
I will be talking about my first impressions of munich in this post.
I went to Germany at the start of this month and went to two places, Munich and Stuttgart. I spent most of my time in the amazing V8 Hotel on the outskirts of Stutgart but also visited Munich whilst I was there.
I am going to discuss some catigoreis:
Vibe, cleanliness, Busyness, food and public transport.
First the vibe: The vibe of munich was great, it was a historic city with many historic buildings, but some modern ones as well.
We went to the city centre on a Sunday, which was a great time to enjoy the sights with out the hustle and bustle of the city.
Now for the cleanliness, the city was clean, as far as cities go, there was litter and cigarets on the streets but there was no smashed glass or any signs of a party the night before as we found in Amsterdam. Most facilities, such as car parks and public toilets were kept in good cleanliness.
Busyness: Like I said earlier we were in Munich on a sunday, and like every other city on a sunday the city was quiet and you could here yourself speak, there were a couple of protests going on which made certain areas more busy than others.
Food: There was a cafe, a bar, and a restaurant on pretty much every street, how ever we most notably went to a burger place called Ruffs Burgers which had a massive ques, we decided to wait in the Que as we figured it may be a fine quality burger. And it was.
Finally for the public transport: I was only here for 1-2 hours and we mostly walked around the city, however like many cities I have been to such as, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Dublin, Munich had an excellent tram service linking the majority of the city, I can not tell you what the trams were like as I never actually rode on them.
So I hope I helped you there, thank you for reading.
Earlier today I took 2 hour and 30 minute drive from Munich Airport to the Porsche Museum in the Zuffenhausen district of Stuttgart.
The museum is located within porches main base. And is an outstanding looking building.
On first arrival it can be quite chaotic. There is a ticket desk where you can purchase parking and tickets. 3 tickets (1 adult, 2 children) and parking costed just 14€! You then are handed a touchscreen device which you can have audio and visual media as well as facts about each car displayed on.
You will then be directed to a cloakroom where you hand your coats to a staff member.
Then you head up the freakishly long and tall escalator into the main part of the museum.
Once up there is cars and thats about it..
For car fans its amazing but for me it got boring pretty fast. Im not in anyway saying its a bad place, It’s good, it’s just I’m not in to cars.
In this blog post I am going to discuss an experience I had last month. Whilst I was in Amsterdam I ate at a pitch black restaurant.
Let me give you a full review and discussion.
On the way into Amsterdam city centre from Schipol airport, we asked our uber driver which restaurants he recommended. He said he was not sure but he had heard about a dark restaurant.
We later found out this restaurant was called Ctaste and we did not hesitate to book a table.
On arrival you can not tell this hotel, is what it is. It just looks like a small family run dutch restaurant. When you get in you sit down on a sofa/bench and they discuss with you some points such as the overall experience, allergies etc.
You then get led in by a waiter, who we believed to be visually impaired, into the darkness.
And from then on you sit at a table and struggle to eat your food.
The experience is great and I would definitely recommend booking.
