I visited this plaza on two tours I did, the free city tour and the Third Reich tour with Sandeman/New European. It is incredible beautiful then you see a picture of how many SS soldiers where there during Hitler's reign of terror and it gives you a completely different perspective. Turn around and look at the Victory Gate too.

Must see place in Munich, especially for its historic relevance during the 1920's an 1930's. Not very beautiful but certainly worth visiting

It's very weird to see this kind of architecture in Bavaria, so it really shocks, especially with the church next to it and the Residenz palace. But it's a wonderful sight anyway.

The square itself is just a plain "square" ... nothing much to see or do ... not even many cafes or stores around it. However walk a bit further along the other roads leading to the square and you have the main shopping street of Munich city center, Marienplatz, and so on.

We saw this place with a tour group but we couldn't hear because of the size (32) and all the traffic.

A little overrated in my opinion. There are some beautiful sight on this square but it is not so that is has to offer a lot more. You come across this square when you want to visit like the Theatinerkirche but it is not a square you must see.

Many talks took place in this square before and after the war! Great for tour groups, going it alone and pictures. Filled with history, offers a look of being back in time and a feel,for what it was like!

Nice to see and hear the history on a walking tour I had here. It was good to see but nothing else really. From here I visited the royal gardens which were more beautiful.

The two lion statues at the steps make a strong statement and popular with the cameras. Unfortunately, during our visit in October 2016, the square was used as a demonstration site in addition to constructions going on at both sides of the square.
