111 out of 111 Sights in Munich!

The last site of Munich in our favorite guidebook: 111 Things in Munich You Shouldn't Miss. It's the Marienklause, a forest-dark chapel on the banks of the Isar built after a dangerous flood by the grateful watchman who survived it. Includes photos of the Isar on a summer's day plus the footbridge and raft route over the river.
