The massive sculpture of a man in a walking pose looks like it is about to cross the road and is a depiction of the hectic lives of modern times. It makes for a good photo spot.

It's kinda near English Garden. If you're in the area, you gotta stop by and get a picture. The statue is massive in person.

This giant walking man is a fun photo op. It is huge, so you can't miss it. I found it by accident and we took advantage of the photo fun. When I was there there was some artists selling art work on the street. I...More

We toured from Munich to Frankfurt Germany and our favorite city was Munich. You have to add the Walking Man to your tour if you are there!

Borofsky's 'friendly giant' in front of the Munich Re building is a great plastic worth a closure look.

Walked past this big statue. The statue is not that special, but if you happen to walk past there, still a funny thing to see. :) There are some benches too, so you can sit down if you feel like it

Massive white statue pretty funny to see. Go see it if it's on your way or a small detour (not too far from english garden) besides that, it's probably fine to skip!
