We continued south through more romantic towns until we came to Munich.
The main square is lovely with its huge Dom,
We visited the Alte Pinakothek (Old Art Museum) with its older European masterpieces including Leonardo DaVinci’s ‘Virgin and Child.’ From there we pushed on the the Neue Pinakothek where we viewed a rich collection of 18th and 19th C. paintings. Some favorites were Van Gogh’s ‘Still Life: Vase With Twelve Sunflowers,’ Edvard Munch’s ‘Woman in Red Dress,’ and Walter Crane’s ‘The Steeds of Neptune,’ which I felt compelled to buy as a poster to give to Alan for his birthday.
The men especially enjoyed visiting the BMW headquarters with its small museum, and, of course, more wine and beer!
and caught a glimpse of Old Schwanstein Castle, too. (No shortage of castles hereabouts!)
Still, we did see signs of spring—Hepatica, poking up its head with a few blooms. Now it was time to head back up north, stopping on the way for another glimpse of those beautiful Romantic Road towns, ending before Frankfurt with a look at the Nutcracker!
We’re on our way home, now—a spectacular but very QUICK trip through some very beautiful areas of Germany!
