Amazing structure of history! I almost passed by, until I stopped and looked at it. On a sunny day it's lovely!
This square has significant history during the Nazi reign. We learned about the rallies held here as well as the book burnings during that time. Our tour guide showed us the pictures of what it looked liked during the rallies and other events there. Without the tour, I wouldn't have been aware of the history here.
We were looking for the Furher building and knew we had to get to Konigsplatz to find it. This is where the Nazi's used to march and also where the book burnings took place. So much history happened in this square that now has a road running down the centre and the buildings either side are museums. Walk out of... More
This is a nice place with many students/people relaxing/hanging out. There is history at this location but there is a lot of history in Munich and outside of Munich. So if you have the time go here but it is not a must while in Munich. We were here about an hour.
This place is worth a look as it is quite impressive. On sunny and warm days it is quite busy with students and lunch-takers. I like the atmosphere of this place. They do concerts and open air movie night in the summer here.

Went on an interesting tour there and was amazed at the beauty and history of the place. Most picturesque, and relaxing. The staff were most helpful and language was not a problem. Would look forward to going back@

At the center of the plaza is the Propylaen and this was finished in 1862 by Leo von Klenze. On one side is the Museum of Classical Art, which is called the Antikensammlung. On the other side is the Glyptothek, which has a... More
This is a very historic area of Munich. It was here that the Nazi's held many rallies. It was here that the book burning's we've all seen in the b&w films were actually held. They say they used to cover the whole area with cement paver's to amplify the sound of the goose steppers marching by. It is a must... More
