This unusual view of the part of München called Schwanthalerhöhe is taken from the area which during two weeks in September (sic!) houses the world famous Oktoberfest. The rest of the year most of the Wiesn is a flat, barren expanse packed with gravel. It is situated close to the city centre with buildings on all four sides. A few smaller events use part of the area throughout the year but when nothing is going on it’s just empty space which accentuates the urban surroundings all the more.
For A Photo a Week: urban.
