More Arches

On my 12-km ride from home to Pasing on the outskirts of Munich, where I cycle a couple of times a week, I like to try out different variations on the route. These pictures are from today’s ride. I saw many more arches that I didn’t stop for. Have to leave something for the weeks to come. This is only the fourth day of the month!

A passageway at a nearby church – I knew churches are bound to provide me with a lot of arches
Same arch from the inside looking out
Poking around the church property I found this: The inscription 20+C+M+B+20 is written in chalk on Three Kings Day when children dressed as the Wise Men come around and sing songs and write the year and their initials on your door (if you wish): Caspar, Melchior, Balthasar
Still in Gauting I passed this house which always makes me smile. Look at all that wrought iron work! Perhaps it is or was the home of a blacksmith and he just couldn’t stop creating new pieces.
This was a discovery, I never saw this fence before. Isn’t it something, and the house matches.
On my way to Pasing I knew I would pass by the Waldkirche, a little church in the woods that is circular. I thought a round church is bound to have a lot of arches. Wrong, the only arches I could see were way up on the bell tower.

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. Cycling and photography are my favorite things.

    Beautiful collection of arches!
    The house with the wrought iron is picture perfect, very nice.
    Wrought iron has fallen from favor here, used to be many homes had it, I always liked it, takes a long time a patience to paint!

    Lovely arches…old world charm, even though some of it doesn’t look that old. You may be right about it having been the house of a wrought iron worker. My father owned a metal shop at one time and we had wrought iron hinges and door handles, plus wrought iron drawer pulls on our kitchen cabinets. Dad didn’t make them though.
