Thanks for the comments!

Munich, Germany

Munich is the capital of the federal state of Bavaria and Germany´s 3rd largest city with a population of 1.4 million in the city and around 2 million with suburbs. As I was only visiting a friend there and had just a few hours to take some pictures, there are only a few random photos, mostly outside the tourist hotspots of Munich.

No touristic hotspots => no problem. I never knew what the ordinary Munich streets looked like. well, now I have an idea. This thread is fantastic!

Another great bunch of pics!

Did you use the public transportations of those cities or you just wondered around walking as far as your feet (and time/weather) could take you away from the train station? I assume Interrail pass does not give access to cities public transportation...at least when I checked I don´t remember it did. And as I don´t have a problem walking, or visiting museums (at least on the first time in a city) and usually this kind of train stations are in the city centre, wondering around walking sounds like a nice idea to me to explore the vibe and architecture of a city

Thank you!

Mostly, I walked through the city which is no problem for me as I am used to walk around 10-15 kilometres by feet every day. Usually, you can´t use urban transportation systems with the Interrail ticket, but in Germay, you´re at least allowed to use suburban trains.

Le Mans, France

Le Mans is a city in the northwestern French region Pays de la Loire with a population of 144,000. Most of you may know Le Mans for its F1-racings, but the city has much more to offer, especially its wonderful gothic cathedral.

Oppenheim, Germany

Oppenheim is a small town in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate with a population of 8,000. In the middle ages, it was a pretty large and important city but became an unimportant village after it had been destroyed by the troops of Louis XIV. in 1689. Though, St.Catherine´s church, one of the most important gothic churches of southwestern Germany, is still preserved.
As I left the train one station too early and went to Oppenheim by foot, there are also a few pictures of the landscape around Oppenheim.

Thank you!

Today, another German town:

Darmstadt, Germany

Darmstadt is a city in the federal state of Hesse with a population of 143,000. The city was almost completely destroyed in WWII - so there is not much historic architecture left. At least, the renaissance-baroque castle and some of the famous Jugendstil buildings have been preserved.
