The apartment was perfect for getting into the old city and we visited various museums and places of interest as well as enjoying beer, sausages, coffee and cake. The museums are all geared up for tourists with head phones to use for translation into English and other languages. The apartment was in easy access to all the public transport and a Bayern tickets cost 39euro to Munich for a day trip for all of us and we also visited Bamburg by train too. The Documentation Centre was very interesting and a moving experience. . Our trip was in October and the weather was cooler than the UK but not cold and the trees were all beautiful colours of Autumn. . There are several supermarkets close by and although we do not speak or read German it was easy to work out how to use public transport. Public toilets cost 50cents to use and one euro at a train station. It was a great holiday and we will definitely visit again and go to the Christmas Market next time. if possible we will try and stay at Michaela's apartment again as it was so comfortable, even thought the stairs are a challenge.
