A European Christmas - Day 5

Stop 12 - Munich, Germany: Raced to Marienplatz Square in Munich to get there in time to see the Glockenspiel go off at noon. Browsed the Christmas markets and tried German Kinderpunsch for the first time (Milo was a fan). 

Stop 13 - Englischer Garten: Since Christmas Eve is Germany's Christmas, everything shut down by 2pm. Once everything closed, we drove to the Englischer Garten and let the kids play on the playground for a bit before heading to the airport to catch our flight home.

Stop 9 - Untersberg Mountain: Took the bus from downtown Salzburg to the base of the mountain. Rode the cable car to the top and let the kids play in the snow.

Stop 10 - Toy Museum: Traveled back to downtown Salzburg and spent some time at the Toy Museum. The kids loved playing with the unique toys and viewing the vintage toy displays (especially the model trains).

Stop 11 - Old Town: Had dinner in Old Town at a little place called Zum Mohren where Ryan tried some Austrian food. Afterwards, Ryan took Maeli ice skating for the first time in an outdoor ice rink in Mozart Square. Finished the evening off browsing the Christmas market at Residenzplatz.
