It is such a pleasure to be back in the amazing city of Munich. Even better to return on a beautiful sunny spring day. The stunning architecture really reflects the sunlight. One of the most interesting cities in Germany for me, a favourite indeed.
If you ever happen to come to Germany don’t hesitate to visit this place, and don’t waste your precious time. I could come back here, over and over again, and still be delighted.
Munich’s huge brick Frauenkirche – the Cathedral Church of Our Lady – was completed in 1488, a Late Gothic church that owes its impact to its great size. Massive twin 100-meter-tall towers, with their characteristic Renaissance domes, tower over a high building 109 meters long by 40 meters wide.
The Theatine Church of St. Cajetan (Theatinerkirche St. Kajetan), a basilica built in the style of the Italian High Baroque, was completed in 1690, with a stunning façade, twin towers, a massive 71-meter-high dome, and richly decorated interior.
Marienplatz has been Munich’s central square since the city’s foundation; the site of medieval jousting tournaments, and, until 1807, where markets were held.
There are a lot of things to do in Munich, and everything is within walking distance. I was lucky to have such a glorious sunny Sunday here. I went for a wander by the river, a gorgeous place to hang around.
Munich is definitely a city of many surprises. I was privileged to be able to come back here, and enjoy the beautiful day!
