Is It a Country? Is It a State? No, It’s a Huge Lady in Bronze!

This is not Bavaria the country but the female personification of the country (or German state) as she looks over Munich, the Bavarian capital.

She stand over 18 metres tall and weighs almost 90 tons.

She towers over the Wiesn, officially called Theresienwiese – a large, barren place that in September each year (except when COVID is around) is covered by beer tents and amusement rides and turns into the largest and oldest Oktoberfest of the world.

To the north is St Paul’s Church with three imposing spires.

And just a bit to the right the iconic towers of the Frauenkirche, the Cathedral of Our Dear Lady, can be seen over the roofs of the nearby houses.
