GES013 - Mediocre Munich

Mediocre Munich On a recent stag do, I opted to get there a day earlier, and scoped out some explores. I’d been pre-warned there was little there, and on the whole the advice was right. However on arriving there was this rather large beauty, one of it’s towers wrapped in scaffold:

After two guys had finished sharing a spliff by a fountain, and waiting for a gap in a first floor office, that seemed to be 24hr manned, I went for it. Something I was amazed at in Munich, was the pretty much complete lack of scaff alarms, cctv, infa-red etc. Further hopeful trips later this year to the continent will hopefully be similar. I only had a point and shoot with me, with a max. 15sec manual exposure, so shots from the cathedral were pretty awful. Here’s the least worst of a bad batch.

This was where the main roof began to curve over as the ceiling. There was a door that lead somewhere here, but it was too small for me to get through.

A few blocks away on the main grand thoroughfares, Maximillanstrasse, the main post office building is being gutted. A trip up to the roof provided a couple of shots of the frieze just below the roof, and looking down onto Max Joseph Platz.

Would have been a lot better with an slr, apologies again for quality.
