Munich, the capital and largest city of Bavaria, is characterized by the unique coexistence of strong economic growth and high tech industries on one hand, and traditional alpine small-town atmosphere on the other hand. In a nutshell: Lederhosen and laptops! Dirndls and high heels! And this is unexpectedly fun!

Having already visited Munich for the popular Oktoberfest, I was thrilled to be back for the second time in just one year! I shall admit that I am, once more, amazed by the harmony, that derives from the combination of historic buildings and modern architecture. The past is still present and the future is being born! Simply Munich!

Once I landed in Munich and dropped off my hand luggage at the hotel room, a program full of interesting activities organised by the  Munich Tourism Office awaited me, while I was greeted by the team from Mucbook and a group of other bloggers who had come to Munich just for the instameet. The fun started right away as we took the Rikscha and drove to the restaurant Cantina Cantona. Under the mottos “Simply Munich” and “Spring in Munich” we discovered different parts of the city together with the locals. We enjoyed a guided tour at the Munich Kammerspiele theatre, beer tasting at the Jewish Museum, a sweet seduction at Sama-Sama and African Dirndl at NOH NEE.

Regarding my stay at the H’Otello B01 hotel, I have to say that although I am a sucker for 5 star luxury hotels, I can appreciate the warmth and coziness that you can find in this small boutique hotel. Clean, centrally located, with passion for details, it can only be highly recommended from me. That’s why I also took so many photos of the decor and my delicious breakfast at bed…

Thank you Munich for the invitation and the warm hospitality. ♥

Have you ever been to Munich for Oktoberfest? As for me, never, until this week I got the chance to visit Munich together with Thomas Sabo. The flight from Vienna to Munich lasted only 45 minutes and I didn’t really realize that I travelled to another country since in both cities German is the spoken language. And although I am not that kind of person who fancies drinking beer and loves German cuisine, I was so curious to see it for myself what is this Oktoberfest all about and enjoyed every moment being a guest of Thomas Sabo among other 35 bloggers from Europe.

If you ever find yourself in Munich for the Oktoberfest, don’t forget to take with you Dirndl and Lederhosen and if you need a Munich travel guide, then contact Mrs. Dorothea Nelle. By the way, did you know that Oktoberfest is called Wiesn as well? Because I didn’t know that but I guess it’s not a big mistake since I am neither Austrian nor German…♥

12 things to do in Berlin

12 things that I like to do in Berlin:

1.    Enjoying a cup of tea and delicious sweets in the Fassbender & Rausch Chocolate House looking at the Gendarmenmarkt.

2.    Exploring the German capital on a pink bicycle. The city is suitable for going around on bicycle because it has a highly developed bicycling infrastructure.

3.    Eating fish chips in the train stations – I love the fried shrimps!

4.    Going for a walk in the Tiergarten and having a break at the Cafe am Neuen See.

5.    Shopping in the Gallerie Lafayete on a Saturday morning and eating mussels in the basement of the department store.

6.    Having a cup of tea in the Wintergarten am Literaturhaus. The highlight is the garden when you sit down in a warm summer air.

7.    Taking funny pictures in the East Side Gallery. It is the second-most visited tourist attraction in Berlin.

8.    Visiting the flea markets where you can buy anything, or so it seems, and the Christmas Markets in December.

9.    Free walking tours in Berlin!! Amazing!! You can find them here: http://www.newberlintours.com/daily-tours/free-tour.html

10.    Visiting the museums in Museuminsel such as the famous Pergamonmuseum.

11.    Visiting Berlin’s oldest quarter Nikoleiviertel and stop for a break at the Ephraim’s Cafe. It is like a grandma’s house.

12.    But above all these, enjoying a red Berliner Weisse Beer in my favourite Dance Hall Ballhaus Clärchens in the Auguststrasse 24!!! Nowhere in the world I have ever found a place like that. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
