Mark Goes to Munich

IBM sent me to Munich for a three day conference in Munich on April 29th - May 1st (Kind of dumb to have us in a conference that included Europeans when May day is like our Labor Day - everyone takes off. The stores are even closed!).

After the conference, Brian, a colleague of mine, and I toured around for three days. Following was our itinerary:

Day 1 - Friday, May 2, I took a bus trip with Brian, Dhimant, Mitch and his wife to the Bavarian mountains where King Ludwig II built two of his dream castles: Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. This excursion took us to two extraordinary castles, both testifying to the vision of Bavaria's fairy tale King. There was also a short shopping stop in Oberammergau, and lunch near Neuschwanstein. The bus tour was operated by Autobus Oberbayern. and the tour guide was a quickly little fellow from Switzerland named Mian. He was as much entertainment as the tour itself.

Day 2 - Saturday, May 3, Brian and I went to Salzburg, Austria. We rode the train there and back. We toured Hohensalzburg Fortress, had a capuccino and torte at the famous Sacher Cafe (Hotel Sacher), looked into the Dom Cathedral, walked through a small flea market, walked by Mozart's boyhood home, and then through the

Day 3 - Sunday, May 4th, Brian & I took the S-Bahn to Schloss Schleissheim. We toured the three palaces there, and then went down the street to the Schleissheim Flugwerft (air base) branch of the Deutches Museum. We toured that, and then rode the S-Bahn back into Munich and toured the main building of the Deutches Museum.
