It was only in the latter half of the same years 1980 to 1996 that the frescoes were finished. The cost for the repair of the hall and the Princes' rooms amounted to approximately 9,000,000 euros, but the result is impressive. And for those who fear getting a stiff neck from looking at the ceilings: there is a trolley in the hall with a horizontal mirror on top. You can walk through the room with that trolley and look down at the entire ceiling. But who wants to do something like that, right?

Not the kind of people that wants to climb the Perlachturm next to the City Hall, possibly, and I'm one of those people. Unfortunately for me, the tower was closed at the time of our visit due to renovations and I had to abandon that idea. I do the same with Bertold Brecht's birth house when I don't immediately find it where I expected it. My girlfriend goes on looking for it while I wait on the Rathausplatz, but she's not really full of enthusiasm about that house when she comes back, so I guess at least photographically I didn't miss much. Anyway, I put little effort in finding birth houses in general.
