City of contradictions


Play your music loud after 10pm - expect an unfriendly visit from the Ordnungsamt.
Demolish a building at 12pm - no problem!
This was the sight that met me as I pedalled towards the Sparkasse on Rudolfplatz last night - pretty impressive. I guess it must be safer to pull a building down in the middle of the night, less people around and all that. It was eerily beautiful and a bit scary - especially cycling under the arch between the one intact building and the one being torn apart -the sound of shattering glass and falling rubble certainly gets you moving...
