  • Pair somewhere around if there is time. Recalls very vaguely to the of Florence, but very small. If have luck, is arman there scenarios of music, festivals of beer and other festivals in the city.

  • A place, you might want to look at the beautiful architecture around the square. She creates a square, and at the same time. In the side streets of shops restaurants. This is not a dead point.

  • The Odeonsplatz is a large square in central Munich which was developed in the early 19th century by Leo von Klenze and is at the southern end of the Ludwigstraße, developed at the same time. The square is named for the former concert hall, the Odeon, on its southwestern side. The name Odeonsplatz has come to be extended to the parvis (forecourt) of the Residenz
  • Nice, busy place with easy access to the Hofgardens, the "Tina Turner" church and the Feldherrnhalle. Also the closest underground station if you're going to the US Embassy.
  • A great place to go most times of the year, though pictures will always be hindered by the traffic and possible markets. Take a tour of the city (various companies offer them) and learn about the history of the area - from why the lions mouths are different facing the Government buildings and the Church (designed around 1790) to the pre-WW2 part the area played during Hitlers rise to power (Bierhausputsch and subsequent events). If you have a chance, take a walk into the courtyard of the painted Munich Residenz (archway to the left when looking at the Feldherrnhalle monument) and experience another special area of the Munich city centre .
  • One of the iconic places in munich. You should read about what happen infront of Odeonsplatz during the Nazi regime.
  • Very beautyful and impressive square in Munich's old town, close to many interesting attraction, definitely a must see!
