Okay, just like Prague, there’s a lot more I could of done but didn’t have the time for. On my last day I toured Munich’s modern art museum, Pinakotek der Moderne. They had some great exhibitions featuring cars, computers, and some Bauhaus too. If you’re into Modern art, I definitely recommend going. But there’s so [...]

Having finished all our tours, I made plans to revisit places I wanted more time at and explore things outside of the city center. I made it out to Olympia Park (where the BMW museum is) to check out Sommerfest – which runs from the end of July to the end of August. It’s a [...]

  Neuschwanstein is a must see if you’re in Munich, so be sure to factor in a day of your travels for this incredible trip.

Words can truly not describe the suffering endured by those persecuted, tortured, and murdered during the holocaust. In lieu of words, I’ve created a video of shots from the first concentration camp just outside Munich at Dachau. The music is from a orchestral arrangement by Herbert Zipper, a famous Viennese composer and Dachau survivor. He [...]

The FREE tour starts at the most iconic Munich landmark (no, not the BMW tower), the old city hall with the Glockenspiel (unofficially ranked the 2nd most disappointingly overrated clocktower in all of Europe – right [...]

Just one hour outside of Prague lies Terezín, a magnificent former 18th century Austrian fortress with a terrible past. The former garrison became a refugee centre for Czechs fleeing Adolf Hitler’s annexation of the Sudentenland. When the rest of the country soon fell into Nazi clutches it became a Gestapo prison, a Jewish ghetto and [...]

I’m so excited to be in Munich, arguably the most beautiful city in all of Germany. I took a bus to Nürnberg and from there a train into Munich. Again, for a short trip like the one from Prague to Munich, taking the train is best. Not only is it the cheapest option, it’s also [...]
