Winter has long time passed, but the memory still fresh in my mind. Many moments appeared for me last winter, e.g. first time touch the snow, white Christmas, visit Schloss Nympenburg and Schloss Neuschwanstein.
1. First time touch the snow
It was Monday, 8th of November 2010 when the snow felt down to Earth, and i touched it. It became such a first-time moment of touching the snow for young man which born and lived in tropical country like Indonesia. I never see and touch the snow directly. So, i had to get used to it 🙂
Here are some pictures of me, with first snow experiences
2. White Christmas
Nothing was changed in celebrating Christmas last year, except : place and situation. Last year i had the first White Christmas in München. I was attending Chsristmas-eve mess in St.Bonifaz Church. It was English mess. After that we had Christmas-eve party. Then, at 25th of December, i went to Marientplatz (City Centre) and visited few Churches there (St.Mikael Church, one of Jesuit Church)
Here is some pictures of my White Christmas moment :
3. Visit Schloss Nymphenburg
Schloss Nymphenburg (means “Castle Nymphenburg”) is a famous Castle which located in the western part of Munich. It is easily reached by public transport (e.g. tram-bahn). According to website muenchen.de , Bayern esp. München is famous of its Schloss or Castles. One of the most popular is Schloss Nymphenburg, one of the biggest King Castle’s in Europe. The Schloss Nymphenburg has a baroque-style, a landscape garden, and museum inside it.

4. Schloss Neuschwanstein
“The Castle of the fairy-tail king” said http://www.neuschwanstein.de ; Yes, indeed i have to admit that, it was one of the most attractive castle which i ever seen!
According to history, it was built by Ludwig II, King of Bavaria since 1864. The solitary monarch’s desire was turn his friend Richard Wagner’s operas into reality. The architectural plan were drawn up by Eduard Riedel, and building began in 1869. In 1874, George Dollman took over the construction. The interior decoration were almost finished at the time of Ludwig’s II death in 1886. The castle itself was not completed by Julius Hoffmann until 1892 (www.muenchen.de)
How do i can get there? In my experience, it was easy to find Schloss Neuschwanstein. You can take train from München Hauptbahnhof using Bayern ticket (cost 29 euro for 1 day for 5 persons). Then, you need to pay the ticket 12 euro / person (common fee) or 8 euro / student (show your student ID-card). Here is the link to Schloss Neuschwanstein
