This place is not as famous as other places in Munich but brings with it memories about ancient history. Great buildings and gardens. We ate our snacks in this area and the weather was good. Recommeded to passby.

Very impressive gate and the square just behind it with other neoclassical masterpieces like Glyptothek and State Museum of Classical Art. Pure beauty with the flavour of past times. One of the most must-see places in Munich located 1.28 km north-west from the city centre.

Everybody who is visiting the museums on Königsplatz see this monument. Most probably very few know, that this is an alone standing monument, and not part of the museums. I. Luwig king let it build.
