Read an Excerpt

Münich can't decide if she is a sophisticated courtier or a boisterous village wench. Her architectural wardrobe is a resplendent array of royal cast-offs, and her jewelbox dazzles, but one whiff of hops and she's dancing on the table. Here is German high society, one of the world's great opera houses, transcendent art--and the Oktoberfest, the world's beeriest beano.

Meet the Author

Rodney Bolt grew up in Africa, was educated at Cambridge University where he studied English; and now lives in Amsterdam. He has traveled throughout Europe and has lived and worked in Greece, the Netherlands, and Germany. In 1992, he set off in a battered Volkswagen van on a two-year-long journey through newly-united Germany to research this book. This experience resulted in a steep learning curve in mechanics, and a Travel Writer of the Year award from the German National Tourist Office in 1994. He is also author of Cadogan's guides Amsterdam and Madeira & Porto Santo.
