  • Looks but gigantic. Not be overlooked during the walk. Startem best at the Münchner Freiheit and walk down.

  • It stands out for its simplicity, originality, size and whiteness. I really liked. Maxime because I did not know of its existence.

  • After walking by the Leopoldstrasse, an attractive Avenue we came across this giant sculpture, that attracted our attention, we note that it was "The Walking Man". The walk down the Avenue is worth, and may seize and take a picture with the sculpture.

  • We didn't plan to to visit this art piece, but happy we did. We came across it by accident on our way to the English Gardens. It is great attraction and worth seeing if you are close by!
  • Eye-catching, original, definitely worth the detour even if you're not that interested in sculpture or modern art!
  • You got to see the walking man, if you are in Munich. It's just a fun thing to look at and take pictures with :)
  • The man makes the street unique!
  • Walking Man is no doubt one of Munich's most famous landmarks. The sculpture is huge (17m), eye-catching, and oveall really impressive. It was created by the American artist Jonathan Barofsky in California and transported to Munich. Walking Man's constant moving state gives lots of freedom for exploring the topic. What did the scupltor want to say us with it? Move forward, never stop, innovate - indeed very inspirational piece of art!
