Day 3 : Munich Germany Cont (16 June 2008)
After visiting Hofbräuhaus, Max-Joseph-Platz and Odeonsplatz we continued with Mike’s Bike Tour of Munich:
White Rose Memorial
This is a monument for a group of students who formed the “White Rose Movement” and distributed leaflets against the Nazi’s during the Second World War. The members of the group was arrested and executed in 1943.
We then had to go through the Hofgarten. The garden for the palace was began in 1613 and was completed in 1617. We were not allowed to ride the bikes through the garden and had to get of and walk. We walked pass the the hofgartentemple or Temple of Diana.
Englischer Garten & Beer garden
The Englischer Garten is a big park in Munich and in the park is the second largest beer garden in Germany with seets for 8000 people. We rode our bikes pass the Eisbach or Ice stream with the artificial waterfall and also saw the Chinesisher Turm. We stopped for a drink and something to eat in the beer garden.
