It was grandma’s 70th birthday today and like so often she wanted to spend it with a day in Munich. We left late morning and drove to a parking garage in the city center close to the Viktualienmarkt (a traditional, all year round market where you can buy almost anything). It was right under the Schrannenhalle, a collection of shops selling gourmet foods and all items “kitchen”. We browsed around for a while and I (Tobias) was tempted to bring samples of everything with me, but I knew that I would not be allowed to import most of the stuff back into the US.
In the basement of the same building was a dedicated Milka (a famous chocolate maker) shop. We’ve never seen so much chocolate in one place. Chocolate bars with flavors we’ve never heard of, 4.5 kg Toblerones, Bavarian dresses in purple, … – everything was there. Pia could not believe her eyes (those are all Milka chocolate bars with different flavors behind her and we only shot 1/4th of the entire shelf):
We had lunch a the pretty famous Andechser am Dom where the walls are plastered with photos of famous people visiting the place. No, they did not take our photos …
After lunch grandma and grandpa went strolling around the city while Pia and I headed for the Deutsches Museum (“German Museum”).
