  Maypole at Viktualmarkt
by adambeau

Favorite thing: Shopping galore in this treasure rich site.

Notice the blue and white decorated maypole in this picture... I don't think anyone's going to try taking that one, but the bavarian countryside is dotted with them. Residents often guard these highly prized maypoles from their neighbors. Its a local custom surely enjoyed by those who honor its symbol in fine traditional revelry.
