Rathaus (Town Hall)

The train pulled into Munich and I walked to my hostel.  Dropping off my things, I headed into the city centre to see what Munich was all about.  To me, the city felt like a mix of modern and old elements.  The churches really stood out from the surrounding buildings though, and that's what impressed me the most.  It was a little different having a McDonalds, then a shop, then a really old church all in a row.  The Rathaus really stood out too, and the square where it was located was really neat.  I spent a little bit of time in the churches and watching the glockenspiel on the Rathaus before heading further south.  I crossed the river and found the Deutsches Museum, which is all about science and technology.  As dorky as I sound for saying it, I really enjoy those things so I headed inside.

For someone like me, the museum was great.  Planes, trains, automobiles, demonstrations on electricity, exhibits on space...yeah!  It may not be for everyone, but I spent a good chunk of the day there.  Afterwards, I headed back into the city centre and spent some more time in the area.  There was nothing that really stood out in my mind, though.  My foot was feeling a little funny again, but I did not let that stop me from walking around the city.  I went back to the hostel and met the 5 girls who were from Australia.  We all hit it off right away and grabbed some dinner together.
