Centerpiece of Odeonsplatz

An important historical monument that sits in Odeonsplatz, built in the 19th century to honor Bavarian generals. The lions make a nice photo-op.

This hall was built originally to commemorate former Bavarian generals. Later on, this place also became the backdrop of many crucial historical events pertaining to Hitler and the Nazi regime. Do read up about the history of this place before your visit, so that you will appreciate it more.

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.

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 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.
