Munich King’s Square


Antique flair in the middle of Munich

It was to be the beginning of the “Isar Athens”. At the beginning of the 19th century, King Ludwig I had the Königsplatz built as the western entrance to the city, modelled on the Acropolis in Athens. The centrepiece is the Propylaen, a neo-classical building that was intended as a symbol of Bavaria’s solidarity with the new Greek nation state. A current work of art from 2021 can be seen on the central gravel area in front of the State Collections of Classical Antiquities: “The Blacklist / Die Schwarze Liste” is intended to commemorate the book burnings of 1933. In addition, Königsplatz with its antique flair is now a popular location for concerts and events.
