Christmas in München

Ourmunichroom We arrived in Munich just after 8pm on Friday night. The train from Salzburg takes about two hours, and the one we caught was a double-decker train. We didn't get to sit upstairs though. We found Munich a little bit overwhelming at first. It is easy to forget how safe, white and middle-class Salzburg is. Munich Hauptbahnhof was like any other major railway station in Europe - hustlng, bustling, and full of peoples of all types of races, creeds, colours, and punks and the homeless which you rarely see in Salzburg. Hauptbahnhof is also massive - I think the historical centre of Salzburg could have been fitted into the station alone.

We found our hotel easily enough. We are staying in the south-east of the city, on the U2 line. Our room is more like an apartment than a mere room. We have a bathroom (with bath), a lobbey area with a kitchenette, an office area, a sofa area, and the bedroom part. After the last couple of months in our single room, if we had a cat to swing around, I don't think we would have tired yet of swinging it round, just to prove how spacious the room we have this weekend is.
