The fun of an aimless walk is what you discover, and happening upon Odeonsplatz on my way out to the english gardens, this impressive hall, stairs, statues and lions certainly takes the eye.

Good to see but it is not a MUST. However, it is just at Odeonplatz and at one end of the shopping area, so you may drop a look quickly if you have time.

Large monument to commemorate the traditions of King Ludwig's army. Good location for a quick photo, but there really isn't much else to do around here. Visit if you're in the area, but don't go out of your way to visit.

If you do not know the history behind this structure, then it provides a good place to click pictures. The church on one side of the general's hall is however beautiful.

A monument to the General of Bavaria with a dark history, during the Nazis time you could be executed for not saluting the martyrs based there.
