Munich: Spring in the Air

We visited Munich last week, a city known for its culture, architecture and beer festival (Oktoberfest). Munich has all the sophistication of a big city but in the meantime its very own Bavarian charm.

To my surprise, what impressed me most are not the famous Nymphenburg Palace (Schloss Nymphenburg), the German Museum (Deutsches Museum), the State Court Brewery (Hofbräuhaus), the National Theatre (Nationaltheater)… but how quiet and green the city actually is.

It’s spring time, there is noting more beautiful than a stroll in a blossoming garden or park, bath the sunshine and feel the peace at heart. The Court Garden (Hofgarten), an Italian style Renaissance garden is located in the central of Munich. And within just a few minutes walk, you’ll reach another garden, the English Garden, a wonderful green oasis to explore and one of the world’s largest urban public parks (it is larger than the Central Park in NYC).

For these of you who want to experience or shop something special, Crooma Munich is a must see. This gallery/interior shop offers photographic art, lighting, furniture and accessories in a futuristic salesroom. Photographers represented include New York’s Tim Petersen, Paris’s Bruno Fabbris and London’s Zena Holloway. And the best thing is: you don’t have to own an art piece to feel pleased…

    置身这样的公园里
    一定感觉得到平和的愉悦
    很喜欢国外的这种gallery,同样让人在匆匆忙忙的生活里面能呼吸一口温和的空气。
    喜欢!

    jibjab, I like the charming detail too.

    Fay, ah…thanks for asking dear. It is a picture I found online (sorry I forgot to add the source, but correct it now. ;) ).

    Elysium, I’ve been to Munich many times, but most of them were business trips. So this is also my first “tourist” visit, hehe. It is indeed a wonderful city.

    ceci,谢谢你。这个公园非常清新安静,所以从喧嚣的市中心商业区一走到那儿人的心似乎也沉静下来了。感觉非常好~~

    偶滴神,来介么晚。。。花园后排站啦啊,哈啊哈~~

    亲,这个公园好美,我好喜欢这种郁郁葱葱滴感觉,这个小粉花我这里也开了,现在一半儿落下,一片绿色中有它们作点缀,特别滴美耶~~~

    花瓣片片真好看,虽说都是花瓣,但是给人感觉不同,左边很浓烈,中间清新,右边那个很柔和还有一种力量在,可能是中间漩涡状增加了动感?这个瓷椅子偶好喜欢,摆在这里真是相得益彰啊!!

    对了,亲,嫩还为这个旅行作了个蛋糕灭??太佩服啦!!

    还有,亲最后那句话,偶很有同感噢。

    其实喜欢的东西不一定非要拥有,拥有只是一种所有权,而喜欢确实发自内心的一种感觉,这种纯净的感觉,是最珍贵的。

    shaonian,I agree. There are a few very talented artists, especially in Berlin.

    哲人泥M,谢谢亲~

    那个不是我自己做的啦,在慕尼黑街上正好碰到有活动别人送的。叫作Lebkuchenherz,是这里的一个类似硬饼干的特产,一般都是心型的上面写了不同的文字。最常见的就是Ich liebe Dich!(我爱你),嘿嘿~~ 买来也都不吃,是挂脖子上当项链戴着玩的。 :-D
