Throwback Travel Thursday: Munich and Frankfurt

First of all let me tell you that I'm really happy to be able to write this post right now because we just had a terrible thunderstorm with torrential rain, hail and power blackout which means that I didn't have Internet and almost no possibility to communicate with the outside world. At least I benefited from the spare time to do my Latin homework, haha! But now let's go over to more delectable things. This is my last "Throwback Travel Thursday" post for now as we reached the last two stops of my Interrail trip: Munich and Frankfurt. Both are really big and well known German cities and we mainly went there to get some information about the universities because back at that time me and my friend where thinking about studying in one of those cities. Of course the following pictures aren't as interesting as the ones I took in Venice or Milan but maybe they'll inspire you nevertheless:

Munich







Frankfurt




In fact I've been taking way more pictures on all of the destinations but my old computer broke and these are the leftovers I found on my personal Facebook account. 

My tips for your trip to Munich:

- If you don't go there during Oktoberfest, the Hofbräuhaus is a must. It is a beer hall where you get really good food and drinks. It lies just vis-à-vis from the Hard Rock Cafe and as both are popular tourist attractions it can get quite crowded around that place.
- Never ever go there on a bank holiday as they close everything and all that's left to do is sit at Starbucks all day (true story...)
- In my opinion shopping in Munich isn't that spectacular but maybe that's just a subjective impression.
- If you want to see how Munich looks during Oktoberfest you could read this old post of mine.

My tips for your trip to Frankfurt:

- To be honest I didn't see that much of Frankfurt as we spent the whole day looking for the university building. However I heard that Frankfurt is a great city to go shopping and almost every famous shop having stores in Germany can be found in Frankfurt as well. If you belong to those people who have a bit more money to spend I'm sure that you will get rid of it in Frankfurt. 

So while I wrote this the sun came out in Bonn and it seems like we never had any thunderstorm. Oh by the way: Would you be interested in a post about Bonn, that is the city where I live and study? We have a lot of amazing buildings and yummy restaurants and the city is definitely worth a visit as well. Furthermore I would like to know if you have been doing something like an Interrail/backpack/train tour through some countries so far. What are your experiences? Or can't you travel without the comfort of a plane and 4* hotel?

  14. I hate when the power goes out! No internet puts me in a bad mood. LOL. Going to Germany for the beer would be the best! I actually really like different beers and it would be fun to try local German beers. <3
