We arrived at our hotel early in Munich so we drove into the city to have a look around.   We all expected another big busy dirty city but we were very surprised by what we had seen.  It was busy but not over crowded and it was very clean, lots of side walk cafes and restaurants, beautiful buildings and churches. There must be alot of money in Munich as the car park was full of porches, benzes, ferraris, rolls, bmws,jags.  
The next day we went into town and hopped on one of the tourist buses for a tour of Munich, after we had done the tour we hopped off in the market area of town where you could buy fruit veggies wine cheese flowers have a bratwurst in a roll stop for a drink in the beer garden.   We had a coffee at a very busy coffee shop that looked over the market, when we finished we called the waitress over to pay the bill and as she was just about to work it out she looked behind us and said "stop StopStop" and took off, we looked at each other wondering what was going on and then realised the group of Irish lads that were behind us drinking beers had just taken off without paying,she returned about 10 mins later after catching them and making them pay
We went for a walk through the city and stopped to watch a clock chime with animated figures that all moved around on the hour to music and then we caught a lift to the top for a fantastic view over Munich.    
After walking through the city we drove over to the Englisher Garten, this is a large 900 acre park with paths trees rivers and ponds and beer gardens.  We went to the biggest beer garden next to a large chinese monument, that seats 7000 people.  It was huge and packed with people, we managed to find a table and chairs then Tony and Dad grabbed 4 massive beers, then we grabbed a bite to eat Mum had a huge Pork knuckle and we had half a chook and chips each, the food was lovely. it is amazing how they can serve so many people so quickly but it is very efficient and it just seems to flow.  The atmosphere in the park is fantastic and very lively it would be amazing during the Octoberfest.
