Flags everywhere

This is an area with lots of bars and restaurants to go out at night. Since I took this photo in the morning, there's wasn't really much going on, just some people having breakfast.

The building straight ahead (the former hotel "Goldener Brunnen") has nearly all the flags of participating teams of the World Cup displayed, I'd say. So what's your guess - who'll make it to the finals??? (needless to say that over here everyone puts their money on Germany) :)

P.S. I almost forgot - by now we're more than 100 City Daily Photo bloggers!!! That's an occasion to celebrate!!!

Nice angle--my money is on Argentina or the obvious favorites-Brazil with Holland as the outsiders.

Mrs Bob, well-known in these parts for her expert fussball knowledge, says a country that begins with the letter "A" will win it. She was speaking in Catalan at the time so that could be Argentina, Alemania, Angola, Australia or Anglaterra. THe other finalist will therefore probably begin with teh letter "B"

Sorry, folks, I'm not a sports fan so I will just say great photo! Wish I was having a drink there right now!

I am an American living with a view of the Goldener Brunnen outside my bedroom windows. I have often wondered about the history of the building. It seems only the first floor is being used now. Do you know anything more about it?
