Generals' Hall (Feldherrnhalle), Munich

(3.4/5 based on 120+ 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. Using our international travel planner, Munich attractions like Generals' Hall (Feldherrnhalle) can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The kilometre-long North-South axis that leads by the Münchner Freiheit the Leopoldstraße and the Ludwigstraße Odeon square ends at the Feldherrnhalle. The pedestrian zone starts here. The Feldherrnhalle houses among others the so-called Bavarian army monument, which is dedicated to the Bavarian army leaders. The two stone lion figures on the staircase are imposing. On November 9, 1923, the coup d ' état of Adolf Hitler was bloodily crushed before the Feldherrnhalle. Later, the Nazis used the open Hall for propaganda purposes and worship events. Today, peaceful and joyful events, festivals and parades held on the square. Accessible at any time, no entrance fee. Metro Odeon square.
