We are excited to share photographs every Tuesday about our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.
Marienplatz in Munich
According to Wikipedia: Marienplatz (en: Mary’s Square, i.e. St. Mary, Our Lady’s Square) is a central square in the city centre of Munich, Germany. It has been the city’s main square since 1158.
In the Middle Ages markets and tournaments were held in this city square.
Marienplatz was named after the Mariensäule, a Marian column erected in its centre in 1638 to celebrate the end of Swedish occupation.
The Glockenspiel in the tower of the new city hall was inspired by these tournaments, and draws millions of tourists a year.
