Munich & Freiburg, Germany

Our earlier experience in Germany hadn’t been too enjoyable and we had consoled ourselves with the fact that we would be coming back through Bavaria later on in our trip.

On our way to Munich we found a quirky camper parking on a golf course with a solar farm. You actually park under the solar panels which was great as it gave us lots of shade. We also got to use the facilities too, fabulous hot showers and a lovely bar and restaurant.

So three months in and we made it back to the south of Germany and were really excited to be returning to Munich. Jon and I had visited here 4 years ago and had great memories, had enjoyed the food, the beer and the vibrant city. The boys were looking forward to the food. I had found us a great campsite on my Camper Contact App. What we hadn’t realised prior to our arrival was that the Allianz Arena, home to Bayern Munich allows campers to park in their car park as long as there aren’t any games or events on. Jon and the boys were very happy to be camping at a football stadium.

We stayed for a few days as the campsite was a great location for visiting the city. There is a park and ride within walking distance too.

We had a couple of days walking through the city and enjoying beer and an incredible amount of sausages.

After Munich we headed west, to another of Mikey’s must see places. Freiburg, the gateway to the Black Forest…it was here that Mikey celebrated his 13th Birthday.

And an afternoon of Go-karting…

Then swimming….

We were intrigued to see the Black Forest so set off early and headed out of Freiburg.

We took the route from Freiburg to Baden-Baden in the north. It’s a really scenic route. You drive through gorgeous villages and towns. It’s a very famous route and incredibly popular with motorcycles. Baden-Baden is a spa town with thermal hot springs.

Lester loved the little water gullys in Freiburg, it was a great opportunity for him to cool off…

The boys enjoyed Germany a lot.

We are retired expats and after 14 years of living and working in Asia have decided to travel Europe as we certainly aren’t ready to settle down and haven’t yet defined what retirement means or looks like and still don’t know where to call home.
