Munich is a city in Germany, the capital of the region of Bavaria. In A King's Ransom, Hamilton Holt and Jonah Wizard flew from Rome, Italy to Munich before driving to Neuschwanstein Castle to meet up with Amy and Dan Cahill while searching for the De Virga Mappa Mundi.
Munich was selected by leaders of the Tomas branch of the Cahill family to host the 1972 Summer Olympics. This may have been due to the city's proximity the Janus stronghold at Neuschwanstein Castle, rumors of the Clue (Pearl) hidden there, or hints of another Clue or other Cahill activity in the region.
