Went on an interesting tour there and was amazed at the beauty and history of the place. Most picturesque, and relaxing. The staff were most helpful and language was not a problem. Would look forward to going back@

Konigsplatz is impressive because of the three buildings there. Konigsplatz was planned by Ludiwg I in 1817. At the center of the plaza is the Propylaen and this was finished in 1862 by Leo von Klenze. On one side is the Museum of Classical Art, which is called the Antikensammlung. On the other side is the Glyptothek, which has a collection of classical sculptures, about 160 statues.

This is a very historic area of Munich. It was here that the Nazi's held many rallies. It was here that the book burning's we've all seen in the b&w films were actually held. They say they used to cover the whole area with cement paver's to amplify the sound of the goose steppers marching by. It is a must see for any World War II history buff.

The Königplatz was used during the Third Reich as a field for the Nazi Party's mass rallies. The Glyptothek is a museum which was ordered by King Ludwig I to house his collection of Greek and Roman sculptures. The other building, the Propylaea was created as a memorial for the accession to the throne of Otto of Greece, a son of King Ludwig I. Worth it!
