That local spelling is nicer than the ugly English “Munich”; the even uglier airport code is MUC. It’s a rich, shiny, gleaming place.
I was lucky and ended up in an 18th-floor hotel room with a good view out over the city, here seen at sunset.
In the evening, we went to the Paulaner beer restaurant; not having much of a taste for South German beers, I stayed with their Pils, which was fresh and excellent. The cuisine was traditional:
The copper piping behind the bar is very pretty.

Lucky you didn't get the sauerkraut with the sausage!

Hmm. Perhaps we anglophones should have called it Monkstown instead.

But sauerkraut is delicious! Especially when served with fat food. Top it with a little bit of Aquavit and you have the perfect fat-"killing" combination. ;-) By the way, in Norwegian, München (or Munich) would be "Munkeby". I'm glad we don't translate names all that much.

You missed out by choosing the Pils. Paulaner Salvator is one of the world's great beers. A bit too powerful for some, admittedly, but definitely something that should be tried.
