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. [German]
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 my return trip from Constance (Konstanz) I came across this rare instance of a locomotive DB Class 103. At that time (Mai 2014) only three of them were still in use for regular trains. I especially love the design and the colour scheme of this classic locomotive class. [German]
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.
