Hofbrauhaus and the Oktoberfest Festival

Now it won't be a trip to Munich without a stop at the mythical Hofbrauhaus , the spiritual home of beer and the world-famous Oktoberfest , an annual festival for beer lovers the world over!  * Founded in 1589 by  Wilhelm V,   Duke of Bavaria , the Hofbrauhaus is one of Munich's oldest beer halls and was the place that wrote the book on the famous and revered Bavarian Beer Purity Law.

Munich - Center of Germanic Culture

In the planning stages of the honeymoon, Monicca and I were faced with a dilemma. Since we could only go on leave for three weeks, we had to decide between Berlin and Munich . While Berlin is one of Europe's most vibrant, trendy, and hip countries, full of nationalities and almost New York-like in terms of vibe, we ultimately decided to go with Munich, seeing as how the city was perfectly in line with our theme to visit medieval European kingdoms. * Size-wise Munich is only a third of Berlin . So while it is a city of over 1.5 million people , locals (who are very warm and friendly) like to brag that it has maintained a charming, medieval-town feel. And we agree!
