  • Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München is the abbreviation LMU University of Munich. It consists of several buildings but the Ludwigstraße Street is the main axis around which are organized different faculties. We arrived at the large square space which form the main buildings but imperial Street consists of two-seater finished off with two big sources each that I remembered to the fountains of Bernini in the St. Peter's square in the Vatican. To the right (East) lies the square called Professor Huber Platz dedicated to Kurt Huber, Professor of this University and member of the resistance group called anti-Nazi white rose. We approached the front door, and the surprise that we was to find a plaque in honour of a distinguished student of theology, called Joseph Ratzinger, who many years later would be Pope Benedicto XVI. Not entered because Guide not putting anything else, well, not even that. Crossed the street Ludwigstrasse towards the part West of the University for get to it Geshwister Scholl Platz, that is just opposite it another square mentioned, and that is it dedicated to them brothers Hans and Sophie Scholl as tribute by have led the Group of opposition and resistance to the Nazism called Die weisse Rose, that means it pink white. Formed by a group of twentysomethings Christian and led by Sophie Scholl were concerned by the brutality of the Nazism, the horrors of the war and the madness of Hitler. This if that interested us because it was written in the Guide, and because I had seen the film of 2005. So we went to see the exhibition dedicated to these brave. As it is usual in Munich we did not find any access control or safety measures even inspection of any kind, or guards sworn or anything similar, and that our appearance betrayed that we were outsiders and were lost in the middle of a strange place for nsotros. I disguised with my camera trying to capture the greatness of main lobby with its stairs and its courtyard lighted by a large translucent dome at the top. Seemed that had a great party of inauguration because in a minibar improvised served cocktails and coffees, and the assistants were dresses of label. There were also students with books and backpacks ranging from one side to another, even the registration office was open with a queue of students waiting for the turn of formalizing their entry into the LMU. Finally found the signals that showed us the commemorative exhibition of the white rose group, found in the second floor, where we got to delight us with the beautiful lighting of the Sun entered through the large windows toward the Hall or corridor where highlighted columns and pilasters holding the barrel vault. In addition all painted white gave an academic aspect of cleanliness, order and neatness that already would like some public universities in Spain. Access to the room dedicated to Thomas Mann had installed temporarily display on the white rose with panels with the history of Germany at that time, photos of the actors, audio sounds relating to the facts, a bust of Sophie Scholl with fresh flowers, brochures in several languages including Spanish, etc. I was not satisfied because even it was not what you put in the libroguia, some papers 'fossilized' on the ground representing the leaflets that they threw to disseminate their ideas. We went back down to the main floor where the party was beginning to end, a downstairs seemed that they had been to a small room where I think that they installed the permanent exhibition but was banned access by some kind of work though the door let it open, and the empty room was. In another inspection by the area we discover basins and made use of them. We climbed up to the last section of the monumental staircase which leads to the upper floors, which helped us to take good pictures of the architecture of this institution. Also, I think that it was from the top of these stairs from where Sophie Scholl threw their roles against Nazism as I remember the movie, and just now checked so was. Desperate went down to the gate to go but pregunar occurred to me one rather elderly woman who was at the reception, and again toward the second floor, told us even showed us the lift that was to the side. We climbed to the second floor where we had already seen the exhibition. Already bored of all that Antonio took his Iphone 5S to consult online data about what we wanted. He found the photo of the roles but they were on a background of paving stones, thing that were not there because we were treading on large marble tiles. To my it occurred to me to look out the window... and the cobblestones were there just before access to the door but ON THE STREET!! surrounded by a group of students. We went flying through the elevator and step I went again the good woman of reception to tell the street, then she accompanied me to the exit and it said the closest, because Antonio was gone where were other students watching them. Do not stop to take pictures with the Nikon and mobiles because after an hour looking for them we would not stop to quench our thirst for knowledge. Between the paving stones have been placed some tiles with the stamping of sepia photographs of the texts and photos of the actors, also in a colour that recalls the passage of time but that is at once universal and timeless, durable. I think that we didn't see them when you arrive because they were hidden by student groups that had the same goal that we see the footprint of the resistance against Nazism.

  • A little away from the Center, in the area University. We arrived up to here in metro. It is a very quiet area, ideal to relax. The prices here are good, as there are students. The facades are older and are well preserved.
