The golden tweet of Germany Here's the Glockenspiel on Munich. Set at the foot of the Bavarian Alps. The city is a mix of rustic tradition, modern life and at times, a somber history. And while one should never forget history, lest be condemned to repeat, we'll focus on what makes Munich a destination for beer lovers, believers in fairy tales and Christmas gift shoppers. And for those wishing to travel to Munich and beyond, be sure to get a German Rail Pass ! First, the spiel on the Rathaus-Glockenspiel. Located in the 800+ year-old Marienplatz, or central square in the city center. This huge mechanical clock has 43 bells and 32 life-sized figurines that come to life in a 260-foot tower, reenacting two scenes from Munich's history. The whole show lasts about 15 minutes, culminating in the appearance of a small golden bird chirping three times. And the crowd goes wild. Show up at 11am to see this “tweet” show. Munich is best known the world over for its incredibly rambunctious Oktoberfest. For 16 days, the city becomes a giant keg party. For years, the fest has followed a traditional calendar of events. On the first Saturday, the tapping of the first beer barrel by the Munich Mayor. On the last Sunday, fireworks commence in the Theresienwiese, the fest's main field. In the days between, find millions of revelers clinking beer steins together, chugging and chanting “O'zapft is !” Learn more about Munich

One of the bigger train stations – the Keleti – is on the Pest side. You can arrive from major, central Europe capitals like Vienna in just 3 hours by train. Budapest is larger than you might expect. If you plan on staying on the Buda side, which is decidedly more suburban, you’ll require the use of a tram to get there from the Keleti station. Learn more about Budapest

"Train was clean ; cleaning crew came by to pick up most of the trash before we onboarded. Seats were comfy. Toilet was clean. Although we didn't use, there were food/snacks on the train, which was convenient. Think price could be a bit lower, but overall great experience. "
