Friday Photo Quiz #142 – Where in the World?

Quiz142

This is city hall in this country's third largest city and regional capital, once home to a famously troubled Summer Olympics.

Can you name the city? The country? The answer is after the jump.

And a good weekend to all from Common Sense and Whiskey and EarthPhotos.com.

And the answer is …………………………………………….. this is the Rathaus on the Marienplatz in Munich, Germany, capital of Bavaria. Munich is the third largest German city after Berlin and Hamburg. The Rathaus is home to a famous glockenspiel.

The 1972 Munich Summer Olympics resulted in the death of eleven Israelis, a West German policeman and five of the eight Palestinian attackers.
