In München Steht Ein Hofbräuhaus

Please vote for my dream vacation ...

I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to live in Germany - twice. My first stay in Germany was in the beautiful Bavarian city of Augsburg. I came to love Bavaria; it's history, architecture, nature, and people. Although it's been many years since I was last there, I dream of going back there again. I was single when I lived there, so it would be wonderful to introduce my wife and three boys to this fantastic place.

Munich Is My Choice
While living in Bavaria, one of my favorite places to visit was Munich. Other than Augsburg, I think it's the most beautiful city in the region. There are a number of great "touristy" sights to visit such as the Marienplatz, the Englisher Garten and the Hofbräuhaus. In addition, there are also a lot of great things to see "off the beaten path."

Munich is also central to many other great places to visit like Augsburg, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Salzburg (Austria), Füssen, and much more; all close enough for a day trip by rail. This makes Munich the perfect base for a Bavarian getaway.

The rental I chose on has enough room for my family and a few friends or extended family who might like to join us. It's close to many of the great places in Munich as well as the train station for taking off on day trips. The perfect place in the perfect location. If more want to come than this place will hold, HomeAway has many choices in the area which will accommodate more travellers.


  1. and here we were just trying to find out if there is finally a hofbrauhaus in michigan. our travel plans are more modest, but we're on the same track. i'll meet you either place.

  2. This blog post is a contest entry to win a stay in a vacation rental. If we win you guys will have to come along. I'll send you instructions on how to vote on January 8th.

  3. Good luck Elmo. This brings back a lot of fond memories. I agree with your thought that Munich and Bavaria are truly heavenly places. Don't think my clan could accompany you, but we'll bet there in spirit.
