  • In this square there is a loggia that is a copy of the Lanzi loggia in Florence but lacks, in my opinion, its charm without the wonderful statues of the Florentine inside.

  • This square was built by Italian architects and you notice immediately. Besides, it is not difficult to hear some street musician who plays must of our musical tradition.

  • Beautiful square pity that here too there was construction going on talking hindered the full view. The square looks a typical example of Florentine architecture

  • This is a place with a lot of history. There are few Baroque churches in Munich. This is a great exponent of them.
  • A pretty public square near the palace. Nice lions. Good place for a street-fair.
  • Another attractive place in Munich, with a lot of historical stories. You can start your trip to English Garden from hier !
  • Interesting for it's history, being the 'battle site' of Hitler's failed beer hall putsch. Close to nearby Hofgarten and Munich Residenz attractions.
  • It's interesting to see if you like the old architecture!
