The Pied Piper

An impromptu crowd gathers around a street performer in the Altstadt pedestrian zone. Front and center is a class of young children – with mixed levels of interest. In the background is quite a contrast with the Swatch store and the Süddeutsche Zeitung, or SZ – Munich’s own “South German Newspaper” The SZ was the first paper to receive a license from the US military Administration in Bavaria, five months after WWII, and they’ve been considered the liberal voice around Bavaria ever since. The pedestrian zone, one of Europe’s largest, fills up quickly on sunny days with many musicians, street performers, and entertainers.
