3.2/5 based on 110 reviews on the web
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.

  • A great monument that sits in Odeonsplatz near the Ubahn station. It's a great place for history buff. Makes a great photo op. 
  • Incredibly impressive site and building. Lots of history. Especially the one from WW2 when SS people guarding the site and guards were avoided by dodging into the alley behind it. Lots of people but no wonder with such a magnificent building with statues of Imperial Germany's top fälthärrar, marschalker and generals.
