Open concept, wonderful pieces of art. Very quiet area for a very large open space. Construction was massive for this hallway. Popular area for quiet religious demonstrators and art showcases.

This is a nice open air monument (loggia), built after Loggia dei Lanzi from Florence, located in Odeonsplatz, few steps from Odeonsplatz subway, between Residenz and Theatine church. This loggia was ordered by king Ludwig I in the honour of Bavarian army. During Advent, there is a place where people can buy Christmas trees.

I am writing this review from the perspective of a WW2 history buff. If you are a WW2 history buff, then visiting the Generals' Hall (Feldherrnhalle) is a must. We stayed in central Munich & used Brienner Straße as one of our main routes to access several of the sites on my list. So, we passed the Feldherrnhalle several times... More

This famous building is built like the Loggia dei Lanzi of Florence in Italy. There are some examples of italian renaissance in the town.

This impressive historical building is located on the Odeonsplatz about 0.52 km north of the city centre. It was commissioned by the king Ludwig I of Bavaria in 1841 to honour the tradition of his army. It was modeled after the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence. In the Nazi era, the building is also served as a sacred place commemorating... More

It is a monumental loggia.This is the place where the nazis confronted with the police in the so called Beer Hall Putsch. 4 policeman was killed and some nazis as well. During the III. Reich it was a place where the nazis demonstrated it was a "sacred place" for them. It is originally to honor the Bavarian generals.

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.

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
