Cool. Much more gritty than I pictured Munich somehow.

Looking at these pictures I knew that someone was going to write that...

The area just south of Munich Hauptbahnhof (central station) is not the most polished of the city.

Nice pictures, but I don't really seem to be falling in love with the city...

thanks for the replies. and yes, this thread does focus on the grit (which there is). for the non-gritty, polished areas of the city, check out my older thread

Great selection. That shot of the two barmaids getting chatted up is too funny. I don't recognise this amazing structure:

lol.

Is Munich normally this overcast? I don't know why, but I always had the impression that Munich was this sunny, wealthy city, but these photos show a different side, and I actually prefer it. Munich seems to have far more edge and character than I previously thought.

Great pics.

^Yeah when I was in Munich, it was a sunny ridiculously hot day in July. Seeing Munich shrouded in clouds took some adjusting!

great pics.

it's one of those places where the weather seems to change often. sunny afternoon, foggy night, misty morning, some rain...

Nice to see that Munich is not only about these wealthy historical and financial districts, the city also has a bit more gritty quarters.
