    One word. OKTOBERFEST! Oktoberfest in Munich was one of the best and most fun experiences of my life. Bring a crew, grab some lederhosen and costumes ( we did not do that but I wish we had), and live it up. They have roller coasters, great beer, good food, and plenty of people just out to have a good time. Also, make sure you get a reservation for a top beer tent for the night. Trust me!

    Traveling While Black

    I visited Munich in March 2019 during a girls’ rail trip through Europe. Munich was our last stop on an 11-day tour and we came in from Vienna, Austria.
    • We did a walking tour of the city to get a lay of the land
    • We took the train and a bus to Nymphenburg Palace, which is very interesting. Don’t mess with the swans, they bite. It has nice grounds for you to walk around.
    • We saw a lot of churches
    • I recommend visiting a beer garden and interacting with some of the locals, Prost! is cheers in German
    • The food in Germany is okay, lots of meat and potatoes, but we did visit a fish market in the outdoor market space called Fisch Witte, it was amazing. We ate fish and drank wine with bibs on right next to the counter
    • There are tons of cool lounge bars and eateries, we hopped from one to the other, so I don’t have any names, but they’re all nice
    Though there were not a lot of black and brown people in Munich, it feels very liberal. We felt very safe, and the people were friendly. As it was explained to us, it’s more Bavarian and open than if you were to go to Berlin which is further North. I’ve never been to Berlin, so I cannot validate that, but it had it’s own charm.

    Heyyyyy! So this whole day was a journey of fun and foolery! We took a train at like 6am! Some people almost didn’t make it but we were dressed and ready. Ice train was 3.5 hours to Munich! What a fun journey! Go with people who are planners! Shoutout to jenn for making it happen on the train.
On arrival we headed to the atm. Gotta have cash for the park and tents. Recommended. Then to the parade to watch lots of fun. The twelve gun salute is safe and they let you know to not run. Today’s day and age we have to get those types of announcements.
Headed into the park to eat our way thru until official opening time at 12 noon. We headed into a tent but all the tables inside were reserved so we sat outside. Even without a reservation. Prices are expensive but it’s octoberfest so it’s how they do.
We definitely moved around to different tents. Got some little trinkets and watched people ride rides. For some reason I don’t trust the rides just yet.
If you aren’t a beer drinker that’s ok, we definitely found tents that served prosecco and mixed drinks! Winning. The food is very standard but good fair food. Lots of half chickens flying around :).
The tents seat different seatings and turn over (meaning everyone leave so they can reset for the next seating). Reservations or not you can usually only sit for about 4 hours.
Bathroom lines are long for women. Typical. But they have workers keeping them clean.
Wear comfortable shoes as there is lots of walking and you never know what gross things you will stumble upon and you never want to be left with your shoes off!! 
We hung around the park a bit. We met several people from America and even a guy I went to college with. Amazing how small the world is! We then headed home on a 8pm train. So long day for sure but worth it to experience opening day at octoberfest!

    So I just got back from Oktoberfest and I had a blast. I went inside the fairground for food most of the time.It was expensive like everything else in the city but I’m a huge foodie so I enjoyed my time thoroughly.
    Of course you have to get your shnitzel, a pretzel and bratwurst. But I wanted to try for more local dishes in the time being there and my favorites were:

    1. schweinshaxe(pig knuckle—super amazing, almost like cracklings but the meat part is super tender and it comes with a potato dumpling )
    2.Semmelknodel mit Pilzen ( bread dumpling with creamed wild mushroom sauce—omg. Almost like a true comfort food dish. The dumplings are smothered in the cream sauce like biscuits and gravy. There is meat included as well)

    just eat up !

    It is a very laid back dining culture as opposed to the hustle and bustle of the US. Once your food has arrived you typically won’t hear from your server until you want something else or if you’re ready for the check. People sit for hours just conversing even after the food is gone.

    Outside seating is ideal as the summer time is warm but just cool enough to where you don’t sweat and the views of the country side are a plus.

    As their diet consist of a lot of pork that’s what you can expect to see on the menu prepared in a variety of ways; fried, broiled, roasted. Out of 10 menu items, 7 will be pork, 2 will be chicken or duck and 1 will be fish. Interestingly enough as did not see a lot of beef dishes. This was very surprising considering the amount of “vacant” land. The sides for just about every meal were sauerkraut and some form of potato. Of all the pork dishes offered the one most familiar to me was the boiled pork knuckle from Behringers Bratwursthäusle. The taste reminded me of the ham hocks that would go into collard greens back home. Also, the roasted duck from Entlas-Keller Biergarten, which was literally a half of a whole duck roasted to perfection. I recommend it. Although the water is clean enough to drink the German word for tap water translates into “plumbing water” so expect them to offer you bottle watered no matter where you eat. Other than the occasional “what does this mean?” or “what’s in this?” I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience.

    I went to Munich for Oktoberfest, so take this review with a grain of salt as it was only for that particular purpose. The weather was great and the event was fun for the most part — it’s actually incredible, so much food, beer (and shots too!), rides, cookies did I already mention FOOD!? it was like sausage heaven!

    Folks said to get there early for a tent, but we didn’t but still had tent spots, everyone was super nice for the most part. Personally.. I can’t drink beer for that long ebfore getting tired and log-ey so I would leave early but the nightlife was fun too! Ther were different ‘areas’ you could go for EDM-esuq music, live bands doing covers of MJ, Elvis, etc and so forth.

    No racial problems per se but for once a drunk guy screamed at me on the bus but i think he was mentally unwell. There were instances when people would stare at me, but I also have huge boobs and wore a drindl… some people asked to take pictures with me and I said no (i’m not a show and tell) and they took it in stride.

    Munich is one of my favorite places! They love black people! I never felt so welcome in a country before. The beer gardens are amazing. Definitely take a bike tour. It’s the best way to get around and see everything. The night life is unmatch. Germans know how to party lol

    I quite liked Munich. I’m not sure what I was expecting but I was pleasantly surprised. The locals were quite friendly and despite the weather, I would like to describe it as cosy. Hofbrauhaus is a must if you love beer. Also, the live band and festive beer maids made for an authentic German experience. The food however was not great. I had the bratwurst and mash combo and I would not recommend it if you prefer flavour or at the very least, some colour on your plate.

    Munich Germany was beautiful! I went in November, so I was able to get a “real feel” of what Germany has to offer. It was breathtaking to see the snow on the grounds and on the mountains. I’m from Texas, so I was really excited about the scenery. We stayed at the EdelWeiss Lodge and Resort and it was amazing. Very clean, great food, and the service was great. The hotel is not far from the center of the city where all the food and beer are. We ate at a Thai restaurant but I cannot remember the name of it. It was great, but the service was terrible. We loved this one restaurant called the Gasthaus Brauwastl. The soup was great and we really enjoyed the snitchzel. Beautiful place with so many different cultures represented. We met people from Africa, Brazil, Ukraine, and Turkey. We loved it and want to return for Oktoberfest.

    I can’t really give a comprehensive review on Munich, because I didn’t get a chance to explore the city much. However, the two activities that I did do were very enjoyable. Here’s some info:

    -OKTORBERFEST: Usually takes place sometime between mid September to early October. Highly recommended for beer drinkers and carnival lovers. It’s a fun time to enjoy carnival rides, dress up in traditional lederhosen German costumes, and of course drink lots of BEER! Should be experienced with a group of friends. Be sure to try the roasted chicken…delicious!!! Get there early to reserve a table for your friends as it gets ridiculously crowded. If you’re not into large crowds and rowdy drunk people, this is not the activity for you.

    -NEUSCHWANSTEIN CASTLE: According to Wikipedia, this “is a 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany.” If you’re looking for amazing views and beautiful photo ops, this is a must do. It’s probably one of the most famous castles in Germany. From Munich, we had to take a train and a bus to get there. Be sure to plan in advance and pay attention to time. You must get to the castle ticket booth at least 90 mins before your tour time. Also consider which is the best option for you to actual get up to the castle. If you decide to save money buy doing the walk up the hill, please be sure you are physically fit. I consider myself to be fit and this hike up a steep hill gave me a run for my money lol. I used this bloggers step by step guide to get to the castle: http://www.thewalletdiet.com/how-to-get-to-neuschwanstein-castle-from-munich/

    I went to Munich back in October and loved it! I was there for about a week on a business trip and was able to eat like the locals, shop in the city center, and also do the touristy things too. Food wise you must try the pretzels as you will get addicted to them. I probably had at least 2 a day. The Hofbrau Haus is a really fun place to check out. It’s a huge hall filled with long tables. They serve lots of beer and traditional German food with live music. The schnitzel is also very good and a very popular item in Germany.

    The city center has a lot of shops, some bigger name brands along with stores that are only found in Germany or Europe and it’s pretty affordable too. The architecture of the churches and buildings are also stunning to look at. Be sure to check out the English Garden. It is beautiful with various trails, lakes and scenery. There is also the Chinese Tower where you can sit down to eat and drink. Be sure to find the surfers under the bridge on the edge of the Garden too!! It is a man made river and surfers practice on the waves. I stumbled across it and it was probably one of my favorite things to see in Munich.
