Where I stayed
The lighthearted amusement park made an interesting counterpoint to the Dachau concentration camp of yestereday.
Another counterpoint to Munich had to do with the price. Family admission to Deutsches Museum, maybe the most fabulous museum on Earth aside from the Smithsonian: 17 Euros. Family admission to Legoland, a mediocre amusement park: 160 Euros.
Anyway, we had a great time. We made this slight side trip to Legoland at Russell's suggestion. We have had very few itinarary suggestions from the kids, so when Russell said that he wanted to visit Legoland, and when he actually directed us to it with the GPS, we thought we would take that seriously
We stayed the whole day, so as to get our moneys' worth. We were there before 10 when it opened, and we left at 9pm when the park closed. So it was a long day. The kids left happy, having experienced the whole thing to its full extent, and having their Lego collection enriched somewhat by our purchases. We bought Lego in bulk, like raisins at the grocery store. They sold it by wieght - 8 Euros per 100 grams. It turns out to be a pretty good deal if you pick the right stuff.
We got back to our camper in the parking lot - where we are now camping for the second night - satisfied and tired and maybe ready to move on to Rothenburg and Miltenburg, and other such medieval German towns along the Rhine.
