Winning Combinations

In Berlin I thought they did a fabulous job of the Reichstag, combining the modern with the old. Here in Munich they have been at it again, transforming an old stately building ruined by the effects of war.

Impressive

Today it houses the Bavarian State Chancellery, with the central dome formerly housing a military museum. The original building was built in 1905. [source: Wikipedia)

The above image is taken from the edge of the Hofgarten, near where Lazy Summer Afternoon was taken. The park itself is very much worth a wander, a valuable green space in the heart of the city.

I trust you are enjoying this week’s German tour. 🍀

      1. Well it wasn’t the main cathedral in Cologne as that is impressive and was rebuilt. In actually taking time to delve furthe I have to bow to your knowledge – it must have been the Berlin one, still it was c.30 years ago that I visited that one…..at least I got the right country. … Thanks for the correction weggieboy and hope all is good with you, 👍🍀
