We woke today to a rainy day that looked like it wouldn't let up. After eating our fill at the hotel breakfast that is included in our room price we made the decision to head to to the Deutsches Museum. Wow......the German's really know how to do museums! This place was HUGE!!!! There are 50 exhibits covering 51,000 square meters. Crazy! In researching this place we had read that even the 8 hours that it is open is not really enough time to see everything well. They sure were right!
We walked around the museum for 7 hours and only saw about 2/3's of it and we were not even really stopping to read the information. Ed loved every minute of it. This museum had everything! I was a bit over it by the end and Ed was exhausted as well. The museum is definitely worth a visit if you come to Munich. Just make sure you put aside a whole day to do it properly. Our tickets only cost 8.50 Euro each and this includes a free ticket to one of the sister museums on another day.
From here we caught the S-Bahn into the center of town. We found ourselves in a pedestrian mall lined with shops and restaurants. We decided to try out the Augustiner Brauhaus for dinner. Another awesome German beer hall except here we found the staff to be a little rude. It certainly seems that in in beer halls the waiter really is the king!
Ed ordered the duck and I had the Pork Escalope. They were both HUGE meals with Ed's being half a duck! Both were yummy but too much to eat! It seems that German's eat a lot of meat. I have only had 2 meals here and I am a little over eating meat! We have decided tomorrow night we might not have a 'German' meal and instead go for something that might include some vegetables or something a little lighter.
We are both exhausted so we have headed back to our room for a quiet evening.
