  Munich - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Munich has a nearly unbroken history of SPD governments since World War II, which is remarkable because the rest of Bavaria is a conservative stronghold, with the CSU (Christian Social Union) winning absolute majorities among the Bavarian electorate in nearly all elections at the communal, state, and federal levels.
As capital of Bavaria Munich is an important political center in Germany and the seat of the Bavarian Landtag (the state parliament), the Staatskanzlei (the state chancellery) and of all state departments.
Among the baroque and neoclassical mansions which still exist in Munich are the Palais Törring-Jettenbach with its loggia, the Palais Preysing, the Palais Holnstein (the residence of the Archbishop of Munich and Freising), the Palais Leuchtenberg (the former residence of Eugène de Beauharnais) and the Prinz-Carl-Palais, the official residence of Bavaria's state premier (or Ministerpräsident).

 Munich Info - Stadtportrait [de]
However, Munich did not loose its contemplative atmosphere, so Munich is often named a "capital with heart", last but not least because of the oases of the cosiness like the typical beer gardens, many green areas like Englischer Gartenand the Isar meadows, the Viktualienmarkt and the famous districts Schwabing, Haidhausen or Giesing.
Today Munich ranks in the same league as cities like Berlin, Rome, Paris or Vienna: Munich is a university town and a metropolis for art and culture with old picture gallery (Alte Pinakothek), new picture gallery (Neue Pinakothek), Deutsches Museum, Villa Stuck and Lenbachhaus, which are only some of the places of interest in Munich.

While the Munich terror was seen and felt around the world, the intensely secret aftermath of the event has remained largely unknown.
Now, from director Steven Spielberg comes "Munich," a gripping thriller based on the events of Munich 1972 and the highly charged mission of retribution that followed—by the covert hit squad known to Israeli intelligence as “Operation Wrath of God,” one of the boldest and most aggressive assassination plots in modern history.
Torn between their desire for justice and their own growing doubts, the mission begins to tear at the souls of Avner and his team, and it becomes increasingly clear that the longer they remain on the hunt, the more they are in danger of becoming the hunted.

 Filmtracks: Munich (John Williams)
Munich: (John Williams) Perhaps only the founder of the Shoah Foundation and the most well-respected Jew in the history of filmmaking could pull off such a striking commentary on the history of the Middle East's deadly history of religious and cultural reprisals.
This affect of common melancholy between both the Israelis and Palestinians is directly interpreted in the score by John Williams, whose music serves to further merge the tragedy by sharing themes across cultures and producing a score of both restrained beauty and stark shades of gray.
Both the opening cue of the film and the stunning "Remembering Munich" feature the lamenting vocals of Lisbeth Scott (excelling here far more than in her concurrent efforts), with the latter cue surpassing any other cue from Williams' pen in 2005 (in sheer grip and raw emotional appeal) with its solemn mourning of the event.
