Munich, Bavaria-Germany

What do you people here think of my current hometown Munich. I know it's more famous for beer than skyscrapers but it has a few and a nice classic skyline.
It is one of the richest cities in the world and home to BMW and Siemens and tons of other multinationals. Unfortunately the height restriction here are pretty strict

Facts

Location: Southern Germany, near the alps
Population: 1.3 million, 3rd in Germany
Age: 845 years old
Claims to fame: Home of Oktoberfest, Possibly the world's Beer capital, home of BMW, and unfortunately birthplace of the Nazi Party, prettiest Alpine metropolis

Wow! Although not dense or tall, I LOVE that BMW building and the Bank headquarters or whatever you said that one building was!

I give it an 8! For being so spectacular!

here are two better pictures of the HypoVereinsbank headquarters in Munich, its one of Germany's most famous scraper mostly because of the design and not the height.

I would like to apologize to my dear friends in Munich, because when I was there with my family a few years back, we somehow got all confused and started driving through a plaza. So if anybody remember a ridiculous looking American family driving right through a walking plaza, that was yours truly!
