Beautiful Munich in the summer

I'm going to share some of the pictures I took this summer in Munich, Germany. I have a lot left to upload so I'm going to post a few of them at a time. I hope you enjoy them!

Okay now for some of the modern buildings I saw in Munich.

image hosted on flickr

Entrance to Salvatorepassage.

Salvatorpassage. It is close to Marienplatz. I love the hanging plants and the reflection of the lights on the glass.

image hosted on flickr

One of the exits of another passage in the same area.

Giant sphere in the passages which reminded me of the Beijing Olympic Stadium.

BMW Welt.

BMW Welt and Olympiaturm.

The bridge to BMW welt.

BMW Headquarters.

Olympic stadium area after the Spain - Russia game.

Modern shopping on Kaufingerstrasse. I like how the old and new buildings don't clash.

image hosted on flickr

I'm assuming this building was renovated. From a distance it looks like another historic building but when you get closer you see the black and red glass roof and new windows and simple white paint.

My next set of pictures will be of the amazing infrastructure in Munich including the airport, S-bahn, U-bahn, and ICE trains along with the stations.

These pictures show just how cutting edge Munich is these days. The pictures also have excellent contrast and editing too (either that or it is a very good camera). Nice job!

I'm particularly looking forward to seeing the infrastructure in the city as it has always amazed me.

Munich's amazing infrastructure:
image hosted on flickr

The airport has a really simple color scheme which is white and black. The colored lights make it very nice. In my opinion it is the best airport in Europe.

image hosted on flickr

Munich Terminal 2.

image hosted on flickr

I wish every airport had an excellent rail connection to the city.

image hosted on flickr

Munich S-Bahn trains.

image hosted on flickr


image hosted on flickr

Tram in the downtown/historic area.

image hosted on flickr

Munich is very bike friendly. One day I biked from Ismaning to the downtown area and it was so nice. In this picture the police are monitoring the speed of the bicyclists to make sure they don't drive too fast.

image hosted on flickr

Nice munich buses. I liked that the trams and subway trains all had the same colors.

image hosted on flickr


image hosted on flickr

St. Quirin Platz subway station.

image hosted on flickr

Ismaning S-Bahn station. I liked that every station was unique and well designed.

image hosted on flickr

I think this is an older station, but it was still in good shape and had nice classical music playing.

image hosted on flickr

Two trams about to cross paths.

Inside the newest subway trains.

ICE train in the central station.

Older ICE train.

The ICE seats were really comfortable and I like that there is good high speed train connections to all over Germany but sometimes there were tickets on Lufthansa's website for less than we paid for our train tickets.

Leaving Munich for Mannheim.

My next pictures will be of the bike trip from Ismaning along the Isar river to the English Garden into Bogenhausen.

I hope you enjoy all the pictures!

I did very much enjoy the pictures! German infrastructure on the whole is top notch and Munich is especially blessed with excellent public transport. Second only to Berlin in Germany and certainly one of the best networks I've seen in Europe!

Thank you for sharing the pictures.

To be honest I didn't go around Munich as much as you did, but the city left a good impression on me, when it comes to architecture of course. Downtown is absolutely beautiful, the area around Isar Tor looks just like some smaller German cities and that's in the core of the 3rd biggest city in the country. Also Munich has a really modern infrastructure and the South is very different from the West, where everything (signs, train stations and so on) looks a bit older and 80'ist.

On the other hand I was very disappointed with the people that treated us quite badly and weren't as warm as I thought they'd be. But nothing's perfect right?

Awesome pics!

i´m ashamed to hear that. but i´ve too heared quite different things from people from central germany who said people in munich were more outgoing and friendly in general then they are used to in their city. hopfully your impression wasn´t the right one (although i don´t reject it as wrong ) hope you had a nice time in munich though!
