This is one of numerous murals you can find in the columned hall of the Palais Toerring-Jettenbach in Munich. This building, also known as the Palais an der Oper, is located at the Max-Joseph-Platz next to the Munich Residence and to the Bavarian State Opera.
This mural at the tower of the old town hall displays a compilation of seals and coat of arms related to Munich. The dates tell when each emblem was in use. The Old Town Hall (Altes Rathaus) was the domicile of the municipality until 1874. Today it serves as a building for representative purposes for the city council in Munich.
The manhole covers in Munich display the ‘Münchner Kindl‘, who is also in mentioned in the city arms. Though in the Bavarian dialect Münchner Kindl simply means Munich child, the original meaning of the figure was a monk or friar.
On 4th day of my InterRail trip I had a small stop at Munich Central Station and had a look for this Christmas decoration and some Weißwürste.
Before entering the Eurocity to Bregenz I came across these two generations of the great ICE trains. Reminds a bit of father (ICE 2) and daughter (ICE T), doesn’t it?
The Olympic tower (Olympiaturm) of Munich is situated in the Olympiapark. From the revolving restaurant, I had a great view of some sights of Munich, e.g. the Olympiastadion and the BMW museum.
On my way to the Bavarian State Archaeological Collection I came across this fascinating storefront of a Munich hotel.
The Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady (Frauenkirche), also known as Münchner Dom, is the largest church in Munich, the capital city of Bavaria. I took this view after climbing up the tower of another church called St. Peter.
This is one example of several wall paintings I saw in the arcades of the Munich Court Garden (Münchner Hofgarten). The paintings display episodes in the history of the House of Wittelsbach. I was especially impressed by the fact that these paintings are displayed in public. They are protected against wind and weather only by the arcades.
