Wurmeck - Munich City Hall, 1 / II Marienplatz, Munich, Germany

There is a legend in Munich that during the dark Middle Ages, a winged serpent came out of the ground in the centre of the city. It was said to have spread Black Death among the people until heroic citizens fought and killed the monster. The metal dragon statue on the side of Munich’s City Hall is called the Wurmeck and commemorates the event. It has been there since 1906.
