Hang in There

Everyone rides bikes around Munich, but it’s not every day you find one hinged to a fence – several feet off the ground. It is located next to the Academy of Art in Schwabing, in an area surrounded by the Universities in Munich. So I can’t decide if it’s meant to be a prank or a work of art (it is quite colorful). The street is called Turkenstrasse, and it’s one of the more funky café streets you will find in Munich. The street also intersects what know in Munich as the Art Quarter, where visitors can admire masterpieces from every artistic period and take a journey through the history of art. The quarter includes all three Pinakothek galleries (alte, neue, modern), and is closely linked to the Glyptothek and Lenbach house. Take my word for it, you’ll see more than hanging bicycles in this neighborhood.
