I spent my time in Munich at museums

Having just come from Berlin, I didn’t expect Munich to be sooooooooo much hotter! AC is not very popular here except for cooling the beer, so I spent my time in museums to stay cool.

I went to the BMW Museum, Bavarian National Museum and the Pinakothek. In the middle of my museum going I treated myself to lunch at places where I heard more German than English being spoken.

The BMW Museum

BMW started with engines for airplanes. They were large supporters of Hitler and WWII.

One of the first motorcycles BMW created

If this engine was in my car, I would have lots of speeding tickets!

This piece was a clock and the skeleton was a reminder that each second brings man closer to his death and even the courageous lion is not immune to death.

Beautiful blown glass glasses

This little guy just looked so happy and cute to have all his grapes

This door had the smell of a very old house and looked like it was out of a fairy tale
