Marvellous Munich!

I was lucky enough to visit Munich this week for my work.  I enjoyed myself a great deal and the city looked all the better in the bright sunshine.  Munich is Germany's third city and is the capital of Bavaria.  It has around 1 326 806 inhabitants.

Its largest park is the Englischer Garten (English Garden) which is well worth visiting, especially the beer garden where you can consume freshly grilled whole chickens.  In fact, there are a lot of very attractive beer gardens (keller) dotted liberally around the city, some where you can bring your own food and you just have to purchase an extremely large tankard of refreshing beer in order to enjoy a meal in the open air underneath the chestnut trees (which were planted to keep the earth cool whilst the beer fermented underground).

It's a suprisingly green city and I managed to catch a few photos of the open air market Viktualienmarkt (Victuals Market) and its impressive flower displays plus the freshest fruit and vegetables in the city, an enormous selection of Bavarian foods, restaurants, seafood, herbs, spices and artisanal decorations using lavender and hops.
