First Impressions of Munich – Siegestor

I have been without Internet at my Munich apartment for the last three weeks and, therefore, you’ve seen some less content coming through. In the mean time, I have been using the time saved to explore Munich, doing the tourist stuff, and here are some first impressions With the Oktoberfest underway, expect to see more pictures on that one as well.

This one is the Siegestor (the Victory Gate) – commissioned by the King Ludwig I of Bavaria, it was completed in 1852 and dedicated to the Bavarian army in the aftermath of the Napoleonic wars (I think).
