We took the train from Paris to Munich where we spent 3 nights. So that gave us 2 full days to visit the city. We spent one full

day splitting our time between two excellent museums: The Alte Pinakothek and the Neue Pinakothek. They were excellent and

the day flew by! The next day we spent the entire day at the BMW museum complex.

From Munich we took the train to Berlin, an 8 hour ride as they do not have TGV tracks in Germany yet. We had rented an

apartment in Berlin for a week. That’s much more comfortable for us as we didn’t have to seek out breakfast, lunch and dinner

spots. The little neighborhood was quite trendy, kind of like Greenwich Village in New York. It was 2 blocks from the U-Bahn

(metro system) and 1 block from a street that was lined with little restaurants of all kinds. It’s a very artsy community and the

young flock to Berlin. But the museums were top, top and we did a 4 hour in-depth overall Berlin Walk with an english speaking

guide that was excellent. Joe even indulged me and went to a flea market with me so I could see what they were like. Nothing

like the French Brocantes, but fun to see.

From Berlin we took another full day train ride back to Stuttgart. This would be our last city we’d visit in Germany before our

return to Paris and there is a TGV that runs through Strasbourg back to Paris making our last leg of our journey only 3 hours.

We spent 3 nights there allowing us 2 full days which were devoted to the two major car museums. We spent one day each at

Porsche and then Mercedez-Benz. They were excellent and even a non-fanatic car person like me enjoyed myself.
