I have forgotten all the German spellings of the places I visited and threw away the pages I had torn from my guide book - so will just include slightly incorrect English terms.

I met Christine Wittman on Couch Surfing. She met me for breakfast and spent the entire day taking me of a tour through Munich.
It was "open memorials" day in Munich - Doors Open Denver is based on this European event . We toured the attic of Prince Leopold I to see places that are not always open to the public. Including the inside of the "monkey tower" - apparently didn't save that photo!
However, here are a few views of from our walk and tour of the art museums.

I was especially intrigued by the beautiful exterior of the contemporary art museum. It is encased in colored hollow rods that control the temperature and lighting of the interior of the museum.

On Monday, I spent the day on my own roaming the streets of central Munich.

In the evening, I took the S-1 to a hotel near the airport. This time, I did NOT drop $200 and 200 euro as I had the first time I tried to figure out the ticket machine. But both times, I did have to ask for assistance.

Now on to Albania
