My trip to Europe

So I'm in Europe right now, Prague to be exact. Was sooooo cold this morning/arvo, got to -6 I believe.

All I have to say is that Munich.

What a magnificent city. I've never seen anything like it. First trip to the snow, making it even more amazing, and right from my first glimpse I was in awe. Everything is so beautiful, I love all the modern buildings as well as all the historic ones. And the people were so friendly.

Love it!

Yes Prague is nice, not disputing that! But Munich is just incredible!

And I've been to London, prior to visiting Munich that was my favoutite city, I think it's bumped down a spot now.

Munich is amazing, I remember coming out of the underground to see Marienplatz for the first time, it took my breath away. Great transport system too.

Re: My trip to Europe

I love Prague.

Your thoughts on Munich are quite interesting because everyone tells me it's such a beautiful city but it seems very under-rated in terms of the city-break market in the UK.

It's because of negative and outdated perceptions of Germany here. Off-peak time it's so cheap to get there, and somewhere like Munich is absolutely made for a quick City break, with loads of stuff to see, and a hassle free transport system. It had an atmosphere I've seldom experienced in Britain, safe, exciting, beautiful. What British City's compare? Don't like London, feels dangerous with a crappy, dirty transport system, maybe York? Edinburgh?

I really enjoyed learning a few words in German for the trip, and left hugely impressed with the country. Salzburg isnt far across the border either, and its wonderful.

Re: My trip to Europe

Prague is the best city on earth to go visit with your better half
Well at least along with Brugges and Edinbourgh!

Re: My trip to Europe

Prague is nice but Czechs are way unfriendly! Plus the Castle is a huge joke IMO
