Friday/ more Munich

Here is a selection of my pictures of walking around Munich, some from Thursday, and some from Friday.   Since I’ve been here before, I can enjoy the sights a little more and not feel I have to take hundreds of pictures!

‘Men in crisis’ says the Zeit newspaper on a lead article for the new year .. and that’s bad for women as well, notes the article. I did not read it in its entirety. (It’s hard work for me to read German).

A panorama picture of Odeonsplatz. I stood right in front of the Theatinerkirche and panned from left to right with my phone camera.

This movie theater at Sendlinger Tor square is 100 years old (OK, 101 years I guess – since it’s 2014!). Interesting that they seem to produce hand-painted posters for movies.

This is Marienplatz in the old town. I was in the bookstore on the 4th floor when the glockenspiel started (music, and the little guys in red start rotating and dancing).

This is in the Karlsplatz area; with the iconic twin towers of the Frauenkirche seen from the side.

This clock is inside the Deutches Museum complex.

The Deutches museum seen from afar. This is the river Isar. The water is shallow very clean; I could see the pebbles on the riverbed. Behind me is some islets in the river which were made into city parks.

This lion is at Odeonsplatz. Everyone passing by rubs the nose of the lion on the shield (which is why it’s buffed and shiny).

This cute cuckoo clock is from a store on Karlsplatz. (I want one!  It can be Oktoberfest all day long in my house.  Or will I go cuckoo with it? I may order one on-line and have it shipped to Seattle when I get back home).

This bookstore is on Marianplatz; has a gorgeous industrially designed staircase in its center.

This is close the the University U-bahn station, a war memorial. The figure with the four lions on top reminds me of the Brandenburg gate in Berlin (which I have not been to). The BB gate has four horses, though.

Ludwigskirche : a church close to the same university (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München), on Ludwigstrasse.
