The Green Cat – A weird figure of a green cat

One thing I really love in Munich is that you can always be surprised by the city and the architecture you can find. 

In general Munich is quite predictable and nothing crazy happens around here. So how surprising would it be if you know that in the very center of the city, on top of a beautiful old building there is a weird statue of a cute green cat with a golden tail?

One of my favorite weird spots is located at the very center of the city and I always smile when I see it.

If you walk from Isartor towards Marienplatz, just before the “Tal” streets ends and turns left to lead you to Viktualienmarkt, on your left you will see two churches – The Peterskirche on the other side of the street and the Heiliggeistkirche on your direct left. Now stand on the corner of the “Heiliggeistkirche” and look up towards the tower of “Peterskirche”. If you look further right, on the top of the building next to the church you will see the figure of a cat, standing on what seems to be a metal ball.

Congratulations, you have found one of the hidden Munich secrets!
