Red Skys At Night…

Not exactly “Sailor’s Delight” from inland Munich, but the city at the base of the alps has experienced a seemingly high number of sunny, clear (albeit cold) days so far this year. This photo captures the last glimpse of that sun and was taken at the outdoor skating rink in the Bogenhausen neighborhood. The rink is seasonal, as they cover one of the many large swimming pools on PrinzregentenStrasse to make the skating surface. This rinks and pools are one of the many managed by SWM, the city utility company. The SWM facilities are quite amazing and represent true community centers, often with multiple pools, a fitness and wellness center.

A pretty evening to skate under the red sky.

Wow! You're fortunate to have these facilities for year around use ... frozen and unfrozen, both. Nice sky.

It is lovely, but it's SWM, not SWIM. Stadtwerke München.
