The Glockenspiel
Munich Stopover




We left Johannesburg, South Africa on May 16th and arrived in Munich on May 17th. We had approximately 8 hours in Munich before we needed to head back to the airport for our flight to Toronto.



Marienplatz

With no time to spare we headed to the main square in Marienplatz. Right off from the train station we came across the Neues Rathaus and the Glockenspiel.



Neues Rathaus

The Neues Rathaus is the seat of the mayor's office, the city council and the headquarters of the city administration. The main-facade is ornamented in neo-gothic style.



The Glockenspiel

The Glockenspiel is in the tower balcony of the Neues Rathaus. Since 1908 figurines representing stories from Munich's history on two levels daily at 11:00 am. 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm. Renata and I got to witness the 12:00 pm Glockenspiel show along with a mob of angry protesters.



Frauenkirche

Munich has various churches in its vicinity . One of the most well known churches in Munich is the Frauenkirche. The Frauenkirche serves as the cathedral of the Archdioceses of Munich

and Freising and the seat of its Archbishop. It has vary interesting unique dome towers setting it apart from the other churches in the area.



St. Peter's Church

Another church nearby was St. Peter's Church. St. Peter's Church is a Roman Catholic church and the the oldest church in the district.



Viktualienmarkt

Our last stop was the Viktualienmarkt. The Viktualienmarkt is the oldest farmers market in Munich and was founded in 1807. Most stalls are open at 8 am but the beergarden does not open until 9 am. I guess it's never too early to grab a pint of beer.



After walking around Munich for a bit, we had to head back to Munich Airport. This marked our last official day on the VESA African Unearth trip. Until our next trip. See you then.
