Monument
An elegant monument perched on the banks of the Isar River, Angel of Peace (Friedensengel) was built to commemorate the 25 years of peace following the end of the Franco-Prussian war in 1871. The monument and its small temple show the portraits of several German emperors and notable figures in Bavarian history, including Chancellor Otto von Bismarck and General Helmuth von Moltke. The temple's interior is decorated with golden mosaics depicting the allegories of war and peace. The statue of the angel sits atop a 38 m (125 ft) Corinthian column, below which is a large fountain with dolphin-shaped waterspouts. For unobstructed view of the surrounding area, take one of two monumental staircases leading to an observation deck at the foot of the column.

  • As to recommend sole attraction only for especially interested, but verb in thing with the city's other highlights is one's necessarily help, E.g. walks along the river ISAR from the Maximilianeum coming and then continue to the ice stream surfers and the English garden, or on the opposite bank of the river ISAR in the Widemeyerstr. search the courtyard, where the legendary Pumuckl was filmed

  • By chance we come up with a brisk walk just outside the Centre of Monaco to cross the river Isar and to admire the monument the Angel of peace, the fact that it is in the middle of a busy street, which also goes around, however, leaves a bit perplexed.

  • Friedensengel. I reached this place in the car, and I was particularly attracted by the beauty of the Angel. Recommended place. Among the many beauties of Munich there's also this.

  • Nice monument which is lit up nicely in the evening hours. Good day and night photo shots
  • The walk to this area was very nice. We were able to walk through a bit of the underground pass to get to it which has a lot of nice graffitti art. When you get to the angel of peace it is very nice to look at and take some photos. Worth it to visit if it's along your route.
  • Beautiful place and usually not so crowded like traditional places as marienplatz
  • Great view of the city. Quite romantic place to be in the evenings
  • Astonishing place!!! Beautiful garden and piece of art!
