The building is named Maximilianeum and today primarily serves as the seat of the Bavarian parliament (the "Landtag"). Only a couple of days after I took this shot the results of the 2008 Bavaria state election lead to a more colorful mixture of parties. More importantly this election ended a 46-year-long period of unbroken government of one single party.
A group of individuals without the status of an official political party (the Free Voters) even reached their aim to send canditates to the next Landtag. A remarkable success and an interesting new trend.
I actually shot this panorama for the last event "colors" in the hope of a major change in Bavaria's government. The location is very close to my very first WWP entry. Plans for 2009 include to participate in more World Wide Panorama events. A big Thank You to the team of organizers!
Have a great new year!
