This huge structure is next to the Residenze complex. It is very easy to see where Hitler amassed his followers here and engaged them in his hatred tirades. The area is huge and next to a park which could be used for overflow. Easy to imagine people en mass here today.

The "putsch" (also known as Beer Hall Putsch) attempt by Hitler and his comrades was held right here in 9 November 1923. Hitler, Göring and other Nazis, along with some SS soldiers confronted the Munich Police. Some shootings, some more dead and Hitler imprisoned gave motion to the III Reich rise. After 1933, Every year a parade was held to... More

The Feldherrnhalle is at the northern end of Residenzstrasse, where it meets Odeonsplatz. Originally the southern gateway into Munich stood here. But in the 1840s, King Ludwig I of Bavaria ordered it replaced by a Florantine-style Loggia, to honour the Bavarian Army. Statues of army generals were placed in it (hence the name) and sculpted Bavarian lions (state symbols) were... More

At one end of the Ludwigstrasse within the Odeonplatz, is the Feldherrnhalle. Built to honor the Generals of the Bavarian Army, and the Siegestor which commemorates the Bavarian soldiers, both of which fought in the Napoleonic Wars of the early 19th century. The most famous event that occurred here was the famous Beer Hall Putsch of 8 Nov, 1923 where... More

Besides the fact that it's located at a very beautiful square, the Odeon Platz, the Feldherrnhalle, is also the location where the Hitler putsch on November 8, 1923 was stopped in a fight with the police. There are some small plaques that commemorate this fact. Behind the Feldherrnhalle, in the Viscardigasse, is a beautiful and unknown memorial: a band of... More

It is great to learn anything on the Third Reich and nice to see landmarks where it happened even though the atrocities later that followed were disgraceful for humankind.

This is where the infamous "Beer Hall Putsch" started by Hitler in 1923. Unfortunately, Hitler was not killed during the attempt and was only sent to prison. This landmark, while being easy on the eye, is still somber, as one tends to wonder "what if...". <sigh>

As part of our Munich tour concentrating on the Nazi era, we learned about the General's Hall. Without learning the history, you might just walk past the building and not appreciate the history of it. Don't miss the gold church right near this.

We came here on our first day in Munich and there was a lovely man in lederhosen singing for everyone there. The history to the area is very interesting. We couldn't find the plaque in the floor which commemorates the police officers who perished there. Worth the visit.
