After arriving safely at Munich Airport, the children had fun on the S-Bahn ride to the hotel. We went then to the Royal Gardens (Hofgarten), and while we were heading to the Neue Pinakothek, Max found his own street Maximilianstrasse. Mr Nastase offered the children a short history lesson when we encountered the Memorial of the Victims of National Socialism, and then back to the hotel for a short break and lunch.
In the afternoon we headed out to explore the city centre, stumbling across the Town Hall (das Rathaus), which greatly impressed us all, as did the baroque masterpiece, the Asam Church (Asamkirche).
Not a bad effort for our first day in Munich, and to top it all off, the children have already learnt some new German words.
Tomorrow, the students will enjoy their first German lesson in the morning, and then in the afternoon take a guided city tour around the city and visit the famous stadium Allianz Arena.
