Hof Garten, Munich
It took me a while to warm up to Munich. I'm not sure why, because its a beautiful historic human-scale European city, almost completely restored after World War II. Maybe I had gotten so comfortable hearing and speaking French, that German--which I don't understand a bit--made me feel a bit alienated.
Anyway, after touring the beautiful and impressive The Residence palace, (in the same family for 800 years!), wandering the parks, and visiting the uber-modern BMW museum, we really learned to appreciate Munich. We heard live Mozart by a pair of excellent street musicians in this rotunda by The Residence.
