I slept until gone nine o'clock this morning. The relaxation therapy is already working.
We had a super idea - skipped breakfast and wandered down to the Christkindlmarkt to enjoy the shopping and traditional fare. We enjoyed the Bavarian equivalent of potato latkes, mulled wine (Glühwein), sausages in Semmel rolls, sweet roasted macadamia nuts and Apfeltaschen (cooked apples and cinnamon in a yeast pocket). Lovely.
I forgot to write yesterday that I'd read some reviews about yesterday's restaurant. They're very amusing, if your German is ok. The service was rather haughty.
We enjoyed the swimming pool and sauna in the hotel and then went off to a traditional Bavarian restaurant zum Franciskaner. We had Leberknödlsuppe, and a soup with oxtail consommé and shredded pancakes and chives. Then two pints of Weissbier (the dunkles- and Hefeweizen) with a mixed grill, potato dumplings and red cabbage.
No room for dessert.
