Munich 1945

This aerial photograph of Munich was taken on June 19, 1945, six weeks after cessation of hostilities.

At the very top of the photograph may be seen Frauenkirche, although the photograph cuts off the towers.

At the right is Neues Rathaus, immediately below which is Peterskirche, with only the base of its spire intact.

The open area at the bottom of the photograph is, of course, Viktualienmarkt.


  1. I've never seen Marienplatz from this angle.

  2. Neither have I.

    But I have seen it from the tower of Peterskirche.

    I love Munich.
