OK. I’ve mentioned it many times before, but I’ll do it again. I love the Hofgarten. The former garden of the residence, with its neo-classical arcade, and its well manicured lawns. I came by the other day and a beautiful woman was singing one of the famous operas over lunch. When you combined the picturesque backdrop of the arcade and the Theatinerkirche and Odeonzplatz behind it, with the new-found sun that has brought everyone out to the parks – it was absolutely perfect. One of our first weekends after moving from Paris to Munich, we met a family from Salzburg – and they said that Munich was a much more cultured city than Paris because it had two city orchestras. While I can’t argue this point, I can say you are not likely to repeat such a scene in the US. I believe this is a uniquely European experience.
