20 photos to fall in love with Munich

Building in Munich

Munich is the place I call home for 4 years now; it seems longer though. Throughout these past years I could see some parts of the city I never knew of, tried cafes and restaurants, visited museums and the zoo, sat down by the river on warmer days, played with my dog in its parks, saw it covered by autumn leafs and snow, found hidden alleyways and passages, and there are still much more to be discovered, every time I go out.

Munich is not the city I ever imagined I would live in, it kind of chose me and not the other way around, but I’m glad things worked out this way. It’s the place I explore while I’m not traveling, and where most of the work of this blog is done. It’s the city I fell in love with, and already gave you some of the reasons why. It’s also where I take my camera and get out and about to find new angles and improve my photography skills.

Every time I go out in the different seasons of the year, there is always something worth being photographed and that I haven’t spotted before. I have selected 20 shots I have taken in the past years – it wasn’t an easy task – to share with you with the intention to make you fall in love with the best city I ever lived. Without further ado, here are 20 photos to fall in love with Munich:
