From the vantage point of parliament house hill, we'll watch the sunset over the city, then make our way to one of Munich's famous family-run beer gardens. You can try bratz, pretzels, beer, and other local specialties as we explain "Gemütlichkeit", the feeling of comfort and ease that the locals so often seek. This is true Munich!
