Public Art in Munich

Oktoberfest is a massive attraction and people are travelling from all over the world to try delicious beer and become a part of national celebration. I was very busy drinking beer but on my way from the hotel to the Oktoberfest park with the pavilions I came across different sculptures.

I noticed many bronze animal sculptures and they had some body parts shinier than others, I assume that it’s because people are rubbing them for luck.

Many beautiful fountains are decorated with sculptures.

One of the best places to find public art in Munich is the subway. Unfortunately, I did not have a chance to check it out myself but I heard many positive reviews. In Munich subway stations are the platforms for collaboration of government with artists, architects and designers. Since 1980s it was the place for artistic expression of contemporary creators. The best lines to explore are U1 and U2.

Next time I am in Munich I will definitely spend less time on beer and more time on exploring the artistic side of the city.
