    Close to the railway station


    In a convenient position for us as we arrived in and departed Munich from the Hauptbahnhof, this hotel is just across the road from one of the entrances to the station. Comfortable and clean en-site for us, helpful and friendly staff a very decent breakfast included in the reasonable price.
    Surprisingly little traffic noise considering the location.
    Another hoter we would be happy to revisit.

    Directions: Rail, tram, U-Bahn, S-Bahn and bus - Hauptbahnhof.

Yet another Monastic gem.....

This atmospheric pub with vaulted ceilings is right in the shadow of the 14th century monastery complex that includes its own brewery. Klosterbrau Ettal Dunkel is a heavenly dark lager with a dry malty palate.

Something incredible happened while at the hotel. Ludwig II was in the lobby hall and fully alive!*


Ludwig II of Bavaria (1845 – 1886) had an early passion for buildings. He was also hungry for reading, probably for beers and local food too as well as he was fascinated by art. He became king at the young age of eighteen.
He also loved music and became very close to Richard Wagner. In 1861, he heard for the first time "Lohengrin" and met the Master himself in 1864.

In 1865, it was the World Premiere performance of Wagners "Tristan and Isolde" in Munich.
Despite the strong friendship with Richard Wagner, Ludwid II is engaged to Sissi's sister Sophie in January 1867 but it was broken off in October 1867.
In June 1868, first plans for Neuschwanstein Castle are prepared and the foundation stone laid in September 1869.

The World Premier of Wagner's "Rheingold" was performed in Munich in September 1869 and the first plans made and building started of Linderhof Castle.
In June 1870, "The Valkyries" has its Premiere in Munich's Court Theatre.
The foundation stone of the Festival Playhouse in Bayreuth was laid in May 1872.
Ludwig II bought in 1873 the island of Herrenwörth in Lake Chiem and the foundation stone of Herremchiemsee Castle was laid in 1878.

Ludwig became more and more a "night" person in late 1870's and was hardly ever seen by normal people. His drives took place in darkness and everyone had to stay out of sight.

Richard Wagner died in 1883 in Venice and Ludwig II's life started to fall apart. He was over his finance and could not finish decorating all his castles. He was declared the 8th of June 1886 by three doctors to be "incurably mentally disturbed" and deposed the next day.

On June 12th a commission brought Ludwig from Neuschwanstein to Castle Berg, where he was to stay under the care of Doctor von Gudden. The very next day both of them were found dead in Starnberg Lake. What actually happened, whether Ludwig, an excellent swimmer, incidentally, was stunned or tried to escape has never been made clear. The post-mortem examination found no water in Ludwig's lungs – clear medical proof that the king had not drowned.

Munich with Children

by jpkrueger

I will be traveling to Munich with my husband and 2 children in August, and need a hotel that will accomodate all 4 of us in one room. I'd like to be close to the center of Munich, and would prefer a modern hotel if possible. Any recommendations? Thank you.

I would recommend the Park Hilton +49 89 38450 which is located directly on the English Gardens. You can book two double rooms with a connecting door for about EUR 220, Their suites are EUR 360, so the dble rooms are a better bet. Good luck and please bring some nice weather with you when you arrive.
