MUNICH, GERMANY 🇩🇪: SUPER BAVARIO

The new city hall.
The Glockenspiel. I was lucky enough to catch the dancing clock. Apparently, it doesn’t operate from November thru February.
Virgin Mary atop the Mariensäule

Frauenkirche – the Cathedral Church of Our Lady. Completed in 1488, I’d say it’s earned some ‘restoration time.’

“Blume” by Valencia-based artist, Escif
Palace of Justice
Munchen Hauptbahnhof

COLOGNE, GERMANY: THE CATHEDRAL, 1248.

Sitting on the steps of Cologne Cathedral, watching all of the hustle and bustle of people going off to work or school. The cathedral cuts an imposing figure behind me, as though people walking towards me will get devoured by its shadows. I feel protected.  ~ me
