Munich’s glorified Cuckoo Clock, the Glockenspiel, was what we will remember the most about Munich, oh that and the beer halls and bike ways through massive parks in the city centre. Marienplatz is the main square in Munich. with shopping and restaurants lining its perimeter, plus the stately historic buildings. The clock tower houses motorized figurines and entertain the masses. Figurines dance, joust, and twirl around the inside of the tower. The performance lasts 12 minutes and ends with the chirp of a cuckoo bird coming out above the display.
How did we end up in Italy with my home made biscotti and parmesan cheese from New Zealand? Well we did. My habit of carrying picnics everywhere we go went too far this time as this is the land of food I love.
