It gets worse - I think it was built by a Danish firm in 1790. Seats 7500 people............

I usually prefer smaller biergartens but the Chineseischer Turm is a landmark and definitely worth the visit.

sunshine on your skin helps the jet lag. don't nap. try and get 'on schedule' with the normal things of life... like sausage and beer!

Thanks for that - a great tip.

Truth be told, I think I took care of the jet lag in one fell swoop last night. Except for getting up for an hour or so at 2 am, I slept from 7 pm to 5:30 am this morning. Feel super.

Went to Italy in May. When we arrived, jet lag lasted maybe a day. Coming home a month later, it took me a week to readjust.

Enjoy your trip - even though I don't figure it's for pleasure.

Except for the jet lag, our Viking River cruise on the Rhine was my all time favorite (non-Escape) vacation. Melatonin seemed to help us get over the jet lag faster than most folks we talked to, but nearly as much fun as this method!

Eric, thanks much for your comments. We are off to the Danube in Nov. for a Viking River Cruise. Late in the season, but dirt cheap tickets, so a good chance to try this out.

All of our other travel has been independent where we have figured out where to go and what to see. This will be the first time we are on an "organized" tour, and I have been a bit nervous since I like a bit of spontenanity every day...
