This and That

Random bits of my life

A High-Level View of Munich

Frauenkirche, or Church of the Virgin Mary, photographed from the Neues Rathaus tower.

I was in Munich last week, as a participant in Red Hat’s New Hire Orientation (EMEA) program. We spent two days watching presentations and were presented with our brand new red fedoras! Well, most of them got the hats. Those of us with very small heads will have to wait for our to be delivered.

On the second day, after the presentations, a number of us went back to Marienplatz in the old historic center of Munich to do some touristy things. These photos were taken from the tower of the Neues Rathaus (New City Hall), which is accessible by elevator for 2.50 Euros.

St. Peter’s Church also has a tower with a magnificent view. You pay 3.00 Euros for the privilege of climbing 300 stairs to the top. It is a bit higher than the Neues Rathaus tower, however!

View of the Alte Rathaus, which actually dates back to the 14th century, despite its “new” look.
