Europe (daddy)

... continued

Prague with the famous Charles Bridge is most enchanting with a big castle complex on a hill at the back. Czech Republic is the most economical country compared to Central Europe. Prices are like Malaysian. They use Koruna (CZK), but if you are ever there, it is better to use Euro as you get a better deal than exchanging Euro into Koruna.

On our way from Prague to Munich, we stopover in Salzburg, where the movie 'Sound of Music' was filmed. Visited the Mirabel Garden with the view of the Salzburg Fortress on the hill in the background.

In Munich, we made day trips out to see the fairy tale castle, Neuschwanstein Castle. The picture was taken from Marien Bridge which is across a ravine from the Castle. No photographs were allowed to be taken of the interior. The furnishing were fabulous which included a million pieces of mosaic laid out in designs and a modern sitting wc built in the 19th century.

The beers are so cheap in the supermarket anyway. But by the cafes in the squares it cost about 3-4 Euros for 500ml. Hoegaarden wheat beer is still the best. Delicious and crispy German pork knuckles cost about 8 Euros per portion. Not that expensive, although Munich is said to be the most expensive city in Germany.
