  • The Propylaea (German: Propyläen) is a gate of the city of Munich on the West side of Königsplatz. The building, built in the Doric order, was completed by Leo von Klenze in 1862 and evokes the monumental entrance of the Propylaia to the Athenian Acropolis.

  • The door was the Doric style and is inspired by the Propylaea of Athens, and consists of a central entrance, surmounted by a large pediment, with two towers on the side. This port was to serve as the western entrance to the city. When the city grew, the door became superfluous and was turned into a memorial for the Greek war of independence.
