Germany: Rathaus-Glockenspiel of Munich

On 16th August arrived the 14 cards I sent to myself when I recently visited Bavaria.

One of the cards shows the Rathaus-Glockenspiel of the New Town Hall at the Marienplatz in Munich. The Rathaus-Glockenspiel dates back to 1908 and chimes everyday at 11, 12 and 17 o'clock. It reenact the stories of the marriage of the Duke Wilhelm V to Renata of Lorraine and of the Schäfflertanz.


Stamp:
Glücksburg Castle (from set of two) (issued 02-01-2013)
