My trip started in the city of Munich and included walking tours of the city, visits to historical Nazi/WWII locations, and time in the famous churches of Munich. Here are some of those pictures:
The above images of the famous "Asam" Church in Munich
These images are of St. Anna, where the FSSP offers the Traditional Mass daily for those in Munich
These images are from the beautiful church of St. Michael in the heart of Munich. Just steps away from St. Anna and several other churches, I found this to be one of the most beautiful churches I encountered on my trip.
Leaving Munich after spending a few days there, I ventured out to tour some of the castles of King Ludwig II including his famous Neuweinstein Castle. It was breathtaking and the throne room of the castle looked like an altar sanctuary. No photos were permitted but I must say that it was the most amazing room I have ever seen in my life. Here are some photos of what I could capture on this leg of the trip:
After returning back to Munich from the castles, I rested for one night and then took a train out several hours eastward to Vienna (Wien). The city was a true gem of history, culture, and architecture. And aside from Rome, this was the most beautiful city I have ever seen in my life. Some of the highlights included:
The Austrian Parliament Building
The town hall in Vienna near Rathausplatz
The above three images are of the impressive and historic St. Stephen's Cathedral in the heart of Vienna
After a day and one night in Vienna, I traveled back westward toward Munich but stopped for a few hours in Salzburg. There I visited the home of Mozart (both his birthplace home as well as the place where he lived). I also spent time in the Salzburg Cathedral, its museums, and the beautiful Church of St. Peter, which includes outside its famous cemetery.

All in all, it was an awe-inspiring trip and one that I will remember. I prayed for all of my benefactors intentions. So thank you to everyone who was kind enough to donate to help me in the sidebar of this blog. You can still donate and I will remember your intentions in prayer as I travel to Spain this June.
