Winter pictures of the city of Munich

Last week I was on a business trip to Munich and my flight was delayed because of snow fall. Normally, I don’t take my camera with me this period of the year because we don’t have enough light in the evening. It was fun to see kids playing with their sleds in the snow. The banks and the little islands in the middle of the Isar River were covered by snow. In the background you see the Maximilians church. On my way to the hotel, I pass through the green zone of the Quellenstrasse with the bright red building of Musicakademie. What a contrast with the white snow. At work, I took some pictures of the Deutsches Museum and the city centre with monuments like the Saint Peter’s church, the city hall and the Frauenkirche.

Vorige week was ik op zakenreis in München en mijn vlucht werd vertraagd door sneeuwval. Normaal neem ik deze periode van het jaar mijn fototoestel niet mee, het wordt te vroeg donker ’s avonds. Deze keer had ik hem toch mee. Het is leuk om de kinderen in de sneeuw te zien spelen met hun slee. De oevers en het eiland in het midden van de Isar rivier waren volledig bedekt met sneeuw. Op de achtergrond zie je de Maximilians kerk. Op weg naar mijn hotel wandelde ik door het natuurgebied aan de Quellenstrasse met zijn flashy rood gebouw van de muziekacademie. Wat een contrast tegen de witte sneeuw. Op het werk, nam ik nog enkele foto’s van het Deutsches Museum en het centrum van de stad met zijn monumenten zoals de Sint-Pieterskerk, het stadhuis en de Frauenkirche..

  2. I am so glad you took your camera this time!!! The second picture is absolutely haunting!! The third with the snow and red building, I would love to walk down that path, when it is a little less slippery! The fourth picture, the snow reflection, looks just like smoke in the water!! There is a song called Smoke On The Water, and that is the first thing I thought of. You must take your camera everywhere, you never know when life will surprise you!

  6. Another day - another city! Your snow shots are fabulous - I like the contrast of the willow bushes in the second and the red building really does pop in all the white.

  8. That red house really stands out in the white snow. I am glad you brought your camera with you. It is a big contrast to the spring time when I was there a few years ago.
