(130+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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 unbearable noise and one sees nothing. The Odeonsplatz, one should avoid at least 1 year.

  • King Luis I of Bavaria ordered him to build in homage to Bavarian military, count Tilly and Von Wrede, but also witnessed the pustch of beer, in times of Hitler, a large veranda and the monuments of these characters. We happily saw a Philharmonic rehearsal.

  • If you do not know the history behind this structure, then it provides a good place to click pictures. The church on one side of the general's hall is however beautiful.  more »
