We spent the rest of the day in Munich. The city had so much history. First stop was the Glauchinspiel…my spelling might be a little off there. But was the most awe-inspiring building i’ve seen yet.
Next stop was the Hofbrauhaus. A famous bar that once held speeches by Hitler…and was used regularly by the Nazi party.
Probably the funniest part of the day was Derek Gingera getting absolutely scared s#@*less by a man acting as a statue
We went inside for a few cold ones but I won’t bore you with the details…we’ll leave that part out. Next we decided to head up this church tower…little did we know that there would be 2500 stairs to climb (I’m ball parking that number). Got some pretty cool pics though.
After the unexpected workout, we walked around Munich for a few hours…grabbing some little gifts for the families.
Long day, the feet are sore and the brain is fried. One of the best days of the trip though.
The most gut-wrenching part of the camp was the crematorium. The way they discarded the bodies of the dead was like nothing i’ve seen before. The prisoners were not seen as humans…but as an inferior race. Here is a video of the stages a prisoner would go through.

It was hard to wrap my head around the concentration camp in Dachau. The brutal treatment of the human lives in the camp was incomprehensible. The camp was simple in its design and had only one purpose. Here are some pics…they don’t really do the experience justice.
Work will set you free...first thing seen by the prisoners.
Cramped living quarters
With the morning open, the team decided to make the venture to St. Johann, a neighboring town to Kitzbuhel. Some well spent time admiring another culture and experiencing the local cuisine.

On the bus to Zel Am See we were surrounded by misty mountains, accented by the towns below.
The same few words echoed through the bus, “pictures just don’t do it justice.”
Cool city high up in the Alps. Didn’t have much time to check out the town though.
