  • Touring the area University of soon we found with this statue giant of color white. There is no way to pass here without seeing it. In its surroundings there are stalls where they sell paintings, copies of art, interesting things. The best photo of her sculpture take it out from in front.

  • A pedestrian street with how very rarely. Large walking statue and good will, good green road. There is a restaurant, sitting beside Bento, visit Japan food.

  • We stopped to see the Walking Man statue while on a bike tour of Munich. It's hard to believe that the "artist" actually got paid to produce this huge and ugly piece of junk and even harder to believe...  more »

  • 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!
