Paula, Munich; 11am - 2pm

Through the centuries

One of the things I love about Munich is that everything you want is just at your fingertips. Today not feeling too too well I decided to visit a Museum.
Actually it is a very beautiful and interesting museums building however to grey to take more pictures from the outside.

I am still very fond of wrought iron...

Ornaments made of pebbles but by -10 Celsius/14 Fahrenheit I was frozen to the bone when I reached the Bav. National Museum. 120000 years of settlement history in Bavaria. There was no way that I would take a long walk outside today. I needed to be warm and cosy.

Love the entrance gate - lion is once again reminding of who gave the city its rights - Henry the lion!
Well, the museum is so very huge that I didnt manage all in one day. Particularly after 3h traveling through the centuries all started to look pretty much similar.

I marveled at the Celtic mint and coins (WOW, even then fake coins where common!), the handmade tapesteries, the first scissors, needles or bone jewelry. Often photography was forbidden as to not damage the exhibits.

Anyway after 7 years of absence it is my first winter in Germany and after a few weeks of it, I am having enough. Brrr. Very much looking forward to my trip to Florida starting February 5.

Beautiful photo! i wish I had a museum like this close by to walk around.
Glad to see you back. Hope you had a nice holiday!
It's freezing here today. I'm not used to this kind of weather anymore. I'll try to brave the cold and walk.
