The Munich Greeter
s are expecting their first guests. They are from Wesel and offered their nephew a weekend in Munich. On the top of their wish list was visiting the city centre.
Meeting point: Isartor (one of Munich’s historical city gates), directly at the gate. Here you can see that Bavarians march to the beat of different drummers (in German you’d say that in Bavaria the „clocks run differently“) – just take a look at the watch on the Isartor. The tour continues to the Jakobsplatz, where the Jewish Museum is located; the „Viktualienmarkt“ (the most famous market in Munich) with a well-know soup restaurant („Suppenküche“) and a beer garden; and the „Schrannenhalle“ (an exclusive indoor market). But in spite of the quantity of delicacies we are moving forward quickly.
On our way to the „Alter Peter“, an old church tower whose 305 stairs we are planning on climbing up, we make a stop at the Bubble T store. Bubble T is a tea-based drink (you can choose between green, jasmine and black tea) from Taiwan. You drink it using a thick straw, because only that way the so-called „bubbles“ can make their way up to your mouth. Their texture is similar to that of gummy bears, but the inner part is liquid. The tea is pretty sweet and not Bavarian at all, but who cares – we are also showing modern Munich to our guests!
