Pictures taken in the beautiful capital city of Bavaria in Germany. I show common places but try to not take typical tourist photos.

  • Schaustelle Pinakothek der Moderne

    Schaustelle Pinakothek der Moderne

    From April to October 2013, Pinakothek der Moderne had to close for renovation. During that time, a temporary exhibition space called Schaustelle was erected. Here is my take on the construction:

    Some old and new photos of crystals, taken at the Museum of Man and Nature and Museum Reich der Kristalle, both located in Munich.

  • Pinakothek der Moderne 2/2

    Pinakothek der Moderne 2/2

    Part 2 of my visit to Pinakothek der Moderne (Part 1). Again an exercise in high-key photography, applied to my favourite aspects of the building: its staircase and the glass roof.

  • Pinakothek der Moderne 1/2

    Pinakothek der Moderne 1/2

    After being closed for several months of renovation – strange for an almost new building – the Pinakothek der Moderne is open again and still has its Sunday admission of 1€. Reason enough to revisit my favourite spot for high-key photography. The following pictures are almost unedited, cropped photos taken with lightstrong overexposure. Like usual,…

  • Munich glows

    Once in a while it is good to have the camera with me nearly all the time: one day I rode back home in the evening and passed by a sports field which was illuminated. The sun just had set behind the horizon and the sky was still in a dark blue colour. The yellowish…

  • Technical University II

    5 more photos of the Technical University Munich. (The first can be found in this post.) This time I visited empty lecture rooms and tried to capture their… erm… special atmosphere. The university’s rooftop has turned into a construction site which will last until 2010.

  • Streetlife Festival

    Streetlife Festival

    Yesterday I visited the Streetlife Festival in Munich which takes place since the year 2000 and is located prominently right on Leopolstraße between Münchner Freiheit and Odeonsplatz. Its main idea is to inform people about means of transportation which can replace use of cars in cities. In addition to that, other non-profit organisations present themselves…

  • Museum Brandhorst

    Recently I visited the Museum Brandhorst which had opened on 21 May 2009. It features modern paintings, sculptures and video installations. These works are presented in an astonishing building which not only looks good but is also built with respect to energy efficiency. Sadly I can only show you pictures from the outside here. Read…

  • Back to Munich

    Back to Munich

    I really like Munich. It has everything a metropolis has to offer yet succeeded in not becoming grey and dusty. Many festivals are organised every year like the Tollwood in the Olympic Park, which is held in summer and winter. Then there is the lovely old town featuring Marienplatz, the Frauenkirche and the big market…

  • Technical University Munich

    Time to publish some photos from my university in Munich. While I think the interior of the building 9 (the cool building on the left of the nightly photo) is crime, I quite like the university itself. About two years ago, the place in front of the northern building N1 (fourth photo) got new trees…
