“Surrounded On All Sides By Archetectural Treasures.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

Odeonsplatz !

The Feldherrenhalle, the Siegestor, the Hofgarten, the Residenz Palast, and the Theatinerkirche all unite to create a uniquely beautiful square.

Climb to the top of the Feldherrenhalle steps, and stand between the two great lions. Look down into the square and out along Ludwigstrasse to the monumental Seigestor in the distance.

On your right the Hofgarten's green lawns, brilliant flower beds, and sparkling fountains, invite you to join visitors around the center temple of Diana, where musicians will likely be playing.

The Residenz Palast, having tempted you with it's garden, is waiting through a great courtyard entrance guarded on both sides by four more lions. For good luck, trouch the noses of the smaller lions as you enter or pass by. Inside is a stunning collection of courtyards, gardens, gold encrusted chambers, great halls, royal treasure troves, chapels, and Germany's most beautiful baroque theatre.

On the opposite side of the square the twin towers and great dome of the Theatinerkirche rise 230 feet high, and invite you inside to see the the absolutely magnificent white Itallianate baroque interior.

They all combine to create a truly unique space, a space that surrounds you with a warmth and charm that results from the random creation of individually magnificent structures that together are,

Odeonsplatz !

Being in a historic place like this is fascinating especially if you are a history guru and interested in what happened here.

“Historic heart of Munich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

I guess you could call the Odeonsplatz the historic heart of the city as it is one of the least spoiled areas looking very much as it did in the 19th c when the it was planned. The impressive Feldherrnhalle is based on the famous Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence, to the left of this is the wonderful Residenze, well worth the entrance fee. The name "Odeonsplatz" derives from the old Odeon Concert Hall which was destroyed in WW2 and now rebuilt as a Government Building. Personally I much prefer this area to Marienplaz which faces the famous Town Hall and is far more touristy.

It is a large area where you can see the church and the residence and reflect on the historical surroundings.

“Historic square”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

As mentioned on the title, historic place and a must see!

I advise people visiting this area to go with a guided tour, otherwise, you won't understand many things there.

Recommended!
