Looking up to Max Von Montgelas

A quick glance of a woman in Promenadeplatz checking out the statue of Maximillian Von Montgelas, a 20th Century diplomat in Bavaria that oversaw Bavaria becoming a kingdom in 1806. Promenadeplatz was for some time the salt market in Munich, and now is a lush green space surrounded by some of the nicest hotels in town – including the Bayerishe Hof which was build in the former Palais Montgelas and the Kleine Kornodie, a popular theater. The building was almost completely rebuilt in 1971-72. I like this photo (thank you guest photographer) because of her glance at the aluminum statesman.
