This is taken at the hunting lodge at Nymphenburg. Looks like it was quite a hunt. Arrived on a very warm day in February-hitting close to 60 degrees-lots and lots of people out walking-the whole Palace was mostly shut but it was still very impressive.
There is also a lot of amazing ceramic art that happens here-the same family has been working their craft here since the 1700's-of course it was all closed on a Sunday-but I did see this:
|About 4 feet tall-great colors.|
|This was part of a bridge in the huge park.|
|Saw what looked a lot like Canadian Geese-they couldn't have made it this far could they?|
|The Hunting Lodge. See Wikipedia for an interior shot of this place-the "Hall of Mirrors."|
|Sun shine and 60's-February 5th!|
|Supposed to stay this way all week. I'm sitting out on the deck with Zoe as I write this.|
|The North Wing.|
|This canal runs for miles in a perfectly straight line.|
|The South Wing.|
|Stopped at a small beergarden in Elizabeth Platz for Currywurst on the way back-sold out-have to get there early for the Currywurst.|
|There were actually two of these beauties parked at the beer garden-both had the center shifter and the banana seats. Very close to the one I had as a kid.|
|A large monolithic stone in the center of Elizabeth Platz. Very old with two worn carvings-Bavarian Flag on one side and what looks like a bishop here.|
Will try and find out what it means....
