Historic Site Tourist Spot
Originally constructed during the 1840s and later modified to honor the soldiers who fought in the Franco-Prussian War, the Generals' Hall (Feldherrnhalle) is the site of one of interwar Germany's pivotal events: the 1923 clash between Adolf Hitler's rising Nazi following and the Bavarian government. The battle resulted in multiple deaths and Hitler's imprisonment. The ornate architecture features marble arches, majestic lion statues, and triumphant sculptures depicting legendary figures. Statues dedicated to Bavaria's own showcase of famous generals and leaders are spread throughout the 20 m (65.6-ft) structure. Using our international travel planner, Munich attractions like Generals' Hall (Feldherrnhalle) can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
