The central image on this stein, which is also the host chapter�s logo, depicts the M�nchner Kindl (Munich Child) on a shield above a wrap-around cityscape. Created as the coat-of-arms or archival seal of Munich in 1239, the M�nchner Kindl (Munich Child) has evolved from a hooded monk standing in front of Munich�s gate to a charming child and symbol of the city.

The Munich theme is continued on the lid inlay with its relief depiction of the Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), one of Munich�s most popular landmarks. Located in the old city not far from the central Marienplatz, its two towers, topped with their onion-shaped copper domes, are among the defining images of the city�s skyline.

Price Range: $25-$40
