Railing thru Europe: Stop 12.6 Germany – Munich

2 things would come to mind when you talk about Munich (München), capital of Bavaria (Bayern). 1) Football (FC Bayern Munich and the Allianz Arena) and 2) Tales of large beer halls!

Another overnight train journey takes us to Frankfurt in the wee hours of the morning. Although the hostel which we booked says reception is 24 hours, when we arrived we were faced with a snoring receptionist.
