Arrived at Marienplatz
 Stood around waiting for the Glockenspiel to go off at 11am (12noon and 5pm in the Summer i believe)

Everyone else's waiting for it to chime too...

This guy is really good.  He played Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca on his Xylophone with just his 4 mallets.  I have 10 fingers and yet I can't play the same piece as well as him on my piano. 

Lunch time

Beer costs cheaper than coke here in Munich.

Devil's Footstep at Frauenkirche
  This is a black mark resembling a footprint with a small hooked tail at the heel, which, according to legend, was where the devil stood when he curiously regarded and ridiculed the windowless church that Halsbach had built. In fact, it is a large casting in the square base plate, and none of the side windows can be seen from the spot when one looks to the high altar. -wikipedia

My size 4 feet doesn't match :)


It fits!! The devil wears size 10 :)
