Looking Through the Old to Get to the New
This photo was taken from the base of the Old town hall, looking at the intracate facade of the new town hall. Built in the Flemish Gothic Sytle and designed by 24-year old Georg Hauberrisser, the Neues Rathaus is at the heart of Munich's Marienplatz. Known worldwide for its famous Glockenspiel in the base of the 259 foot tower, nearly lifesize characters dazzle the crowds. Most of all, I jut like how the sun highlights every last detail. I felt I caught a glimpse of the building while no one else was looking.
