For the first time Colour-Magnitude Diagrams are presented for NGC 6569 and Palomar 11. NGC 6569 is a rather concentrated cluster whereas Palomar 11 is loose and sparsely populated. Cluster parameters are derived from V and I photometry. These are red Horizontal Branch globular clusters, with metallicities comparable to that of 47 Tucanae. We derive a reddening and a distance from the Sun kpc for NGC 6569, and and kpc for Palomar 11. NGC 6569 is located in the bulge, while Palomar 11, despite its rather high metallicity, is in the inner halo, a rare case similar to that of 47 Tucanae.
