We went to a castle called Hohenschwangau Castle -- long name, don't you think? It was where the famous King Ludwig II lived as a child. I really liked it because it had a lot of cool paintings and objects inside. The castle belonged to Ludwig's dad, King Maximilian.
We just guessed that they didn't want people to run over any princes! Ha ha.
After visiting the castles, we drove to the city of Munich. In the city, there is a famous restaurant called the Hofbrauhaus. Even though they serve food, The Hofbrauhaus is not really a restaurant. It is a really old and huge beer hall where people get served beer in big liter glasses. Tyler and I had a pint of Sprite and two giant Bavarian style pretzels.
We even saw a guy in lederhosen there, which is a traditional German outfit, and there was an umpapa band playing German music. We had a fun visit to the Hofbrauhaus.
On our last day in Germany, we went on a bike tour of Munich. We went with Mike's Bike tours, but we didn't have Mike as a guide. Instead, we had a guide named Steve and he was really funny. We went to a big outdoor beer garden in the park for lunch and they had great food there, like bratwurst and grilled chicken. The park was also really cool because there was a part of the river there where people actually went surfing! Take a look at the video:
Steve was a great guide and he made learning about the history of Munich really interesting.
I really liked Germany and hope I can go back.
