We spent the day sight seeing around town. While walking to Marienplatz again to see it during the day, we went into St Michaels church, Michaelskirche. This is a Renaissance Church built in protests from the citizens in the late 1500's, mostly due to the fact that they tore several homes down to build it. It is very beautiful inside and very bright. After the church, we went to the end of the plaza and into the toy museum, Spielzeugmuseum. The museum is located in the clock tower of the Old Town Hall, Altes Rathaus. It was amazing to see the history of toys from different generations.
Once we left the museum, we went into St Peters church, peterskirche. This church is the oldest in the city of Munich.
After the Peterskirche, we went on to the market, Vikualienmarkt. The variety of meat, produce and veggies to chose from were amazing. They even had truffles from Alba. After the Market, we walked around to see the other two city gates, Sendling Tor and Isartor.
The last day around town, Saturday 11/03, went walked around town again and went souvenir shopping. This time we watched the Glockenspiel (the clock that is on the tower of the town hall, Neues Rathaus). It is so neat to watch. The theme is a wedding with knights jousting. We also went to the Hofbrauhaus, which was very busy. While we were doing our souvenir shopping in Marienplatz, we watched Mongolian street performers. They were very good, I loved listening to their instrumental music.
