Photo Friday: Sights of Munich

Headed to Munich, Germany, for Oktoberfest?

Perfect. You’ll love the beer.

But, get out of the Biergarten to see the rest of this beautiful Bavarian city. Take a free walking tour passed the National Theatre. Stop in Marienplatz to watch the Glockenspiel on the Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall) clock tower. Look up at the Frauenkirche’s twin towers that stand tall above the city — thanks to a height ordinance. And, step inside the cathedral for a look at the Devil’s Footstep and birds’ eye views of Munich and the Alps.

Seven years have passed since I took these photos during my visit to Munich. Hopefully, I’ll get back for Oktoberfest one of these years.
