München Artifacts

Ancient American history is all about our indigenous people. Historians say we are a young country but we really are not. There were just no European descendants here util the 1600’s and so in our arrogance and ignorance we say oh we are so young compared to Great Britain or European countries.

European history though is so rich that you see ancient artifacts everywhere. This is a wall outside The Munich City musuem There is no explanation or sign, just some ancient artifacts on a brick wall. I guess an American equivalents would be petroglyphs in the Southwest.

München Doorway

I became fascinated with the old and unique doorways in the city of München (Munich) Bavaria. Many of the doorways of churches and public buildings seemed to be unique and very artistic. Of course some, like this one are quite ancient and maybe that was one of the sources of my fascination. This is a door exiting the courtyard of München Town Hall.

Rathaus-Glockenspiel Detail

Last year i published a post on the famous Glockenspiel in München Bavaria. Although it was a nice scenic picture of Town Hall where the Rathaus-Glockenspiel is located it occurred to me that you really couldn’t see the detail of this famous landmark. I recently found this closeup which provides a much better view of what the Rathaus-Glockenspiel is all about and why each day hundreds gather to see and hear the performance.

München Street View

The first time we were in München was only for two days and one of those days was spent at Neuschwanstein Castle and the rest of the time it rained. We saw little of the city. This time we were there for five days and took the trams and subways all over the city. It is really a wonderful city. It is filled with history, wonderful museums and sites, great food and the maybe best beer in the world.

We spent some times in neighborhoods outside the tourist center. We visited some coffee shops,food markets and even a laundry mat. I think of it as a workingman’s city but that said it had great public building,parks and musuems and even a palace or two.

A typical street outside of the main tourist center.

The Rathaus-Glockenspiel München

The Rathaus-Glockenspiel of München (Munich) was part of the reconstruction on München Town hall in 1908. Every day at 11 A.M. it chimes and the clockworks move and display stories from the 16th century to entertain visitors. The upper stories of town hall consists of 43 bells and 32 life-sized figures. The top half of the Glockenspiel tells the story of the marriage of the local Duke Wilhelm V who was the founder of the world famous Hofbräuhaus.
