MUNICH FOR LUNCH

On Boxing Day we went out for lunch with friends from the village, Karen, Eddy and their son, Danny. Karen grew up in Germany so we took them to a German restaurant in Brisbane called
'Munich Brauhaus'. Sorry if the title of my post misled you. It would be nice to go to Munich for lunch but when we live on the other side of the world the 'Munich Brauhaus' will have to do.
The restaurant is in South Bank Parklands in the heart of Brisbane. We arrived early in case the parking was difficult but most people must have been in the stores for the Boxing Day sales because the carpark was half empty. Since we were early we took a stroll around the parklands.

There is a water park for children

The dishes fill with water and empty on the children

There is a man made beach for families with our State Government Building
towering in the background.

Then we found the street with our restaurant.

The Munich Brauhaus. We had a beautiful spot outside. The weather was not too hot.

When in Munich!

After German sausages and pork knuckle, we made our way back to our cars.

The park is colourful

I like the huge, colourful, flower pots

  4. Brisbane looks a wonderful city to explore. No one in the water at the children’s park? I guess they are all home playing with their Christmas toys.

  8. How good is that beach on the river. I think Queensland Tourism should pay you for this post.

  9. A wonderful place to enjoy and such pretty surroundings. We have two German restaurants that we know of and probably more that we don't. One is in DC and we dined there with friends of ours, and one on our own towards the Shenandoahs. Both restaurants are owned by German immigrants. Both were very pleasant experiences.
