Munich, Germany

Germany is one of my bucket list places so I am always thrilled to receive a card from there.

Munich is the capital city of the German state of Bavaria. It is located on the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is the third largest city in Germany.

The city's motto is "M√ľnchen mag Dich" Munich likes you. Before 2006 it was "Weltstadt mit Herz" (Cosmopolitan city with a heart). The name Munich comes from Old High German Munichen which means by the monk's place. Monks from the Benedictine Order founded the city. The city's colors are Black and Gold, the colors of the Holy Roman Empire, and have been since the time of Ludwig the Bavarian.
