Münchner Freiheit

For as long as I have lived in Munich (about a year and a half, since you ask) the U-Bahn station at Münchner Freiheit has been undergoing major renovation. Above ground, construction of the terminus and laying of the tracks for the new 23 tram line has been going on at the same time.

Finally the end is in sight, at least for the U-Bahn stop. A couple of days ago I walked down to the platforms to catch the U3 and was met by a shimmering confection of vivid blues and luminant yellows.

It's certainly striking, though it could be a bit much for anyone with a hangover.
