In the Munich city centre you find quite some building work going on. This is the ongoing demolition work for the old "Karstadt am Dom" department store. The new building should be finished in 2013 and will be called "Joseph Pschorr Haus".
Munich is the capital of the German state of Bavaria and is Germany's third largest city, located on the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Black and gold - the colors of the Holy Roman Empire - have been the city's official colors since the time of Louis IV, Holy Roman Emperor.
