Chicos Amo como disfrutan las pequeñas cosas de cada ciudad por la que pasan 🙌🏼
This is fantastic guys! Live life. We will be waiting for you back in Mexico. All is well.
When I left the Army a year later joined the California Nat'l Guard. Back in Nov. of 98 went to Germany to train with other American units there. We had a 24hr pass to go off base and went to Munich... didn't see much but the beer was amazing and went to see what everyone in some European countries talk about... "The Red Light District" lol . Wow that was a culture shock. I don't know if Goyo will go there with Hillary lol
I'm an admirer of your videos, but just a hopefully helpful comment. The comments below show that many of your viewers are assuming this was filmed in Munich in the last few days. Looking at your clothing and the mostly bare trees, it appears to be more like chilly March, not warm and sunny June. It would be helpful to many viewers if you put a time reference in the beginning. Not even necessarily specific dates but something simple like: Mid March 2022
If you guys are still around Munich, head to Freising! It’s a tiny little town a 10 min drive from the airport and has the worlds oldest brewery, Weihenstephan. The town itself is very cute but the feature is for sure the brewery! Get the pork hock!
Since you are in Germany, you need to go visit "EL CHINGON" Mexican Restaurant. Owner is German who's wife is from Mexico City where he lived and learned to cook. I can't recall the City it's located in but you can ask Jan el Wero from Wero Wero TV channel
Great trip for Germany, enjoy bratwursts, enjoy beer, and enjoy Munich, cheers from Leon Guanajuato!!!
Hillary! You have been MISSING OUT on the al pastor tacos in Puerto Vallarta!! You broke your pork ban for a sausage?! 😂 🌮🌮 are everything. 🥰
The OKTOBERFEST open markets were amazing in 2015... But I was up North... Manheim, Frankfurt, Speyer, and Heidelberg!! The Walking Streets during holidays are great!! Also I went to a wonderful market in Strasburg, France and was SO happy!! SO yeah... Depends on when you are there as much as Where? I am not sure... but I love September/October and Even November in Germany when there are a few less Tourists to see how the people do daily life and Celebrate on the weekends.... HOWEVER, If I have to compare to MEXICO????? NO QUESTION: Mexico WINS!!! :D
Munich and the Viktualienmarkt are great anytime of year, but in a way it's a shame you are not there now, in June. All the beautiful urban forest is fully and freshly leafed out, flower boxes are everywhere, more people are out in sunshine, and the cold beer is even better on a warm sunny day. Imagine the English Gardens at their maximum green and lush. Staggeringly beautiful. Much of the to-go deli-type places in the Viktualienmarkt are superb. I'm in Munich now and a couple of days ago ordered 120 grams of the cocktail shrimp in a tasty cream sauce. Memorable light lunch, and only 6 €. I personally feel June is Munich at it very best. Warm, maximum green, but the swarms of summer tourists don't arrive en masse until July.
You two need to go to New Braunfels TX end of October beginning November for Wurstfest 💯, being a German colony you can enjoy great authentic German beer, sausage, strudel etc. 😋
You have refrained from eating tacos al pastor and carnitas and many other delicious meats in Mexico, but you go to Germany and a simple sausage with bread seems so appealing you have to try it! LOL
I guess that explains why cheese fondue in Switzerland was the best meal Hillary ever ate in her life. 😆
@Joey Chilango cheese fondue is a snack not a meal, something like nachos lol
@El canal de Mandin I know, those were her own words. The video is even called "THE BEST MEAL OF HER LIFE!" 🤣
Because it’s that good! It’s hard to find a bad sausage in Western Europe but not hard to find cheap and awful street food in Mexico. It is what it is!
@Christian Termont No, it's not that good, at least not mind-blowing. I should know, I lived in Germany for 6 years. And your comment about cheap and awful street food not being hard to find in Mexico only shows that you're simply talking out of your rear end. Mexicans eat a whole lot and therefore take their street and market food very seriously. As a Mexico City local who spends a great deal of time eating at taco stands and food markets I can honestly tell you that no street food vendor here who serves crappy food would ever expect his business to last for more than a few days. In order to make bad street food in Mexico and continue to stay in business you would literally need to sell your crap to Mexicans who have never eaten Mexican food.
The Markets in Germany in December are a lot of fun!!! I was taken to several and had bratwursts and pretzels! They even serve hot wine with fruits it was delicious!!!
I agree! Christmas Holidays were Amazing in Germany!
You found the most famous and expensive market in the whole of Germany. Only the fish market in Hamburg is close.
As a part time local for 7 years I can tell you, we would go to the Viktualienmarkt if we need to find something special, but not for every day needs. However, we would go to some sausages and beer. And for the market women dancing during Fasching (carneval).
I loved my 4 years in Germany. I am excited for you both, enjoy!!
Bavarian beers are so good partly because they’re not pasteurized. I don’t care that much for beer here in the states (or even Mexico), but the beers there - I counted the hours before I could have another. They’re THAT good.
german market seems more clean, lot less chaotic, but mexican markets has a lot more variety fruits are fresher
no, the food and water quality is MUCH higher in Germany (or Austria, Switzerland etc.). Its also more fresh (you have MUCH higher standards! That you even dont know such basics shows that you have not much experience. And because most people are not really experienced with the world: it is a typical difference that you have in less developed countries often those big, busy, colorful markets. people without much experience and a bad pattern recognition often dont recognize the repetitive character. the markets in more developed countries rae usullly much more refined - on point of the essential differences. its like the difference between lower and higher kitchen. you can also drink tap water in germany, austria and switzerland, they are among the best in the world .should i now really start to teach you bout how low the quality standards (also regarding delivery logistics to keep stuff really fresh, government test standards, process quality, hygenie regulations etc.) are in countries like mexica but also in many countries in asia (of course in japan, south korea etc. you have also great standards for the same reasons as in germany, austria, switzerland etc.), africa etc. or or are you from now on going to be more smart/scientific and less esoteric about such things?
you have to admit friends. Even the Germans who visit MEXico say so. THERE IS NO MARKET so festive and assortment of good things. LIKE A MEXICAN MARKET
For the real original bavarian munich feeling, more toursts at the Viktualienmarkt are needed.
México no se compara
you know why
Cause como México no hay dos
Viktualienmarkt is packed as hell in the summer. And we don’t get our food in the city cause most Munich residents live outside the “downtown”
German lager is one of my favorite beers. I do agree most beers taste blah but when you really experiment there are some great ones out there.
Mexico has a MUCH better weather than Germany and Mexico has more touristic and best beaches in the world. and it has Tequila which is worldwide drunk.
Yup. Yup! Germany is very …. Subdued compared to Mexico! I love it though. I want to be back there.
Two cultures colliding in your lives. German order and discipline vs. Mexican desmadre (for lack of a better word). Neither is better -- just different. But, my wife (Mexican) and I (30 years in Mexico) would miss the bustle of the Mexican market while I imagine a German would find the Mexican market chamingly chaotic.
Hola Kinetics!!! Saludos desde Mi Nezota!!! 🙋🏽♂️🤗🤟🏾
Unlike a lot of other places, Germany is not like that Believe me when I say German he’s not like that I have been there twice for a whole month each time the second time was for the World Cup we couldn’t get our tickets so we went to a hotel bar lives in a quarter of a mile from the stadium and they didn’t charge or over charge for the beer and food that we had they charged exactly what it said on the menu
On June 21, it is supposed to be 79 degrees, maybe you can lose the coat, hat and gloves? That market is quite large but as you noted, not bustling. I do like seeing a good mercado! Have fun!!
This definitely wasn’t filmed recently
@The Velvet They were in a blizzard in Switzerland in May, this may have been recorded in late May or early June. They just left Mexico like 2 months ago.
The sausage is known as "Bockwurst," and it is made of veal and pork.
How much do things cost in Munich? Maybe provide a comparison of what things would cost in Dollars and Pesos compared to Deutsche Marks?
You must go to the Hofbräuhaus am Platzl. Built in 1589. The world's most famous beer hall.
Just bread and sausage...I am sure both are very good. However I think I would need some toppings over it.
like hot mustard and sauerkraut
Was this filmed in March? Would not think it would be cold outside in June??
Munich is expencive for every one! Everywere in Germany you feel good with a local beer and a local Sausage. And it gives many local differnces in Germany! Try Cologne with the local Beer (Kölsch) and the unique culture!
I can't believe you're wearing autumn jackets in the middle of June!
Love markets. Can't wait to c
Nothing beats German beer, so many small local brewers. I have family in Bavaria and they shared with me that the alcohol content allowed is lower than in the states. It makes it more refreshing and you’re able to enjoy more of it without turning into a drunken mess. ;) The bottled German beer for export has higher alcohol content than available locally. My college aged cousins used to ask for it as soon as they arrived in California for a visit - to see what all the fuss was about. 😂I don’t know if that is still the case today - but it sure helped explain why my husband and I could down multiple giant mugs of Hefeweizen on hot summer days in the Englischer Garten and still comfortably enjoy the rest of the day!
Zum Wohl! 🍻
Go to the Hofbrauhaus or the Mathaser beer hall- the biggest
Mexicans and Germans love their beer! Who has the better beer? It is like Italy vs. France with wine. Who has the best wine. Italy or France?
Bad comparison! Italian wine is mostly average at best.
@Christian Termont France and Italy are the top wine makers of the world. Get your facts straight and do your research.
@Big Small Travel Being a top producing country does not automatically equate to producing the best wines. Out of the best 50 most heralded wines in the world, France might have 45 and Italy zero to none. Different aims and different markets.
Quiero cerveza y salchicha 🍺🌭
Summer in Germany is a lot different,livelier,more carefree.germans let it all hang out when the weather is warm.
Problem is it doesn’t really get to be summer until about July!
Germans are always calm. they detest madness and rushing
Are you guys currently in Munich? Cause it’s burning hot right now…
We have a little German town here in Washington state called Leavenworth beer and brats. Mmmmmm
Wait a minute…you betrayed Mexico for a German hot dog and a beer 🍺? Oh well…cheers!!
"Weißwürste" are the best with swet mustard an bretzel
Beer is pretty great there.. theres hundreds of breweries.. you were at tourist location being you're tourists..lol
Hector the Viktualienmarkt is heavily patronized by German locals as well as tourists.
I live in California and we have those big lemons
Yes, stay there!
Were there flies landing on the food like in Mexico lol
BYOB at a Mexican market 🍻
Greg in lederhosen! Greg in lederhosen! Germany is not complete w/o Greg in lederhosen! si! si si!
No pork for a decade? Seriously !
Hi, are you still in Munich? I hope, I'm Mexican and I live in Bavaria, and tomorrow I will go there. Please, I want to meet you. 🙏
What’s your story? How does a Mexican end up in Germany? I’m Mexican born myself and it’s rare for Mexicans to end up in other countries overseas. I’m always fascinated by the stories, please share if you can. Btw I assume you speak German, what’s your profession there?
@aj bouvet I'm about to move to Germany, I was born in Los Angeles but both of my parents are from Mexico. I am going to be stationed there since I am U.S Army, I'm excited. I have started learning German and I already have a German GF who is helping me as well.
What was the last time you tasted a bar of soap?
Mmmmm looks good.
I never tasted soap..I was a good boy.
Difference no. 1, sausages instead of gorditas

Good to see You gays !!!!!
Why do you have to compare everything to Mexico? I don’t get it
Because they live in Mexico.

I agree with Hillary, Beer tastes like soap😀😀😀
That's why she like's Micheladas better 🍺
