When Twilight Breaks – Tour of Munich, Part 3

When Twilight Breaks Photo Tour of Munich, Part 3

To celebrate the release of When Twilight Breaks, I’m conducting a virtual photo tour of locations in the story. Since COVID-19 led to the cancelation of my research trip to Germany, this is a virtual photo tour, with photos from my family’s 2007 trip, photos donated by friends, and stock photos.

Because it’s virtual, I have virtual travel buddies! These buddies participated in the book’s preorder campaign and donated their personal photos. My lovely daughter, Anna Sundin, came up with the idea of virtual travel buddies AND she Photoshopped all the pictures! I think I’ll keep her.

Don’t forget to enter the When Twilight Breaks Release Day Giveaway—I’m giving away a few items related to the story.

Also, please return for more photos!

Today I’ll show photos from locations in Munich where scenes take place in When Twilight Breaks.

English Garden

Munich’s Englische Garten (English Garden) is a large park on the lines of New York’s Central Park or San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. In When Twilight Breaks, foreign correspondent Evelyn Brand often meets her informants in the English Garden after dark.

Hofbräuhaus

The Hofbräuhaus is a Munich landmark originally built in 1589. In When Twilight Breaks, Peter and Evelyn enjoy a meal there.

Oktoberfest

What virtual trip to Munich would be complete without the Oktoberfest? In When Twilight Breaks, Peter and Evelyn attend the Oktoberfest—but their time is less than festive due to looming danger.

    The Original Hofbräuhaus is on my travel bucket list along with Oktoberfest. With Munich itself at the top of the list. I want to see the country and region where my ancestors came from.
