Munich: Monet di Baviera

The Italians refer to Munich as Monaco di Baviera, the Monaco of Bavaria. At this time of year, with the setting December sun burnishing the Gothic facade of the city hall in glowing copper-gold, it could also be called Monet di Baviera, for it feels as if one has wandered into a painting by the great master of Impressionism.

Spot the difference. Rouen Cathedral, by Claude Monet; and the Munich Rathaus, by December sunlight.

Munich. It makes an impression.
