The Bavarian Myth
"When there is Foehn, that southerly wind that sweeps away
the haze from the Alpine peaks, the Munich citizen, standing on the tower of
Old Peter's Church in the town centre, looks beyond the town across the
landscape, into southern Bavaria. From this vantage point the viewer
understands the Alps as a backdrop of a small world, in which the Alpine
dairymaid and the hunter embrace each other, in which the summer
holidaymaker enjoys watching the dance of the schuhplattlers, in which the
poacher sells a game to the village priest's cook, in which the king and the
bishop visit the peasants' homes to try out the new cherry brandy. . . "
