This giant walking man is a fun photo op. It is huge, so you can't miss it. I found it by accident and we took advantage of the photo fun. When I was there there was some artists selling art work on the street. I...More

We toured from Munich to Frankfurt Germany and our favorite city was Munich. You have to add the Walking Man to your tour if you are there!

Walked past this big statue. The statue is not that special, but if you happen to walk past there, still a funny thing to see. :) There are some benches too, so you can sit down if you feel like it

Came across this on our way to the English garden as we got out the tube station. It's very large, quite a fun thing to see. Somewhat random.
