Fantastic Monument

A monument to the General of Bavaria with a dark history, during the Nazis time you could be executed for not saluting the martyrs based there.

If you do not know the history behind this structure, then it provides a good place to click pictures. The church on one side of the general's hall is however beautiful.

Very busy during the day and night. Near to all other Munich historic sites in the down town. Go there if you are interested in the history...

One can't help passing by Feldherrnhalle when in Odeonsplatz. Worth a look see and thought for history buffs. For more info. see reviews by DiamondDiva771 and Ricky Y below. For non history people, their information provides a bit more perspective as to the building's importance.

Coming out of the Underground after taking the U4 to Odeonplatz on our way to to Marienplatz, you emerge to face this multi arched monument--it is huge and clearly of Italian design and look. It was built as a memorial to those who fought in the 30 Years War against the French and later, Hitler used it to memorialize those... More

I was through here a few times this week. The first time I did not know about the statute Hitler had erected to honor the policemen, which is now gone. If you look closely you can see where the wreaths were. I also wasn't aware of the story of pedestrians going in the alley to avoid saluting so it was... More

The three arched Feldherrnhalle, based on Italian architecture, is a focal point on Ludwigstrasse and commemorates the commanders of the Thirty Years War against France. Hitler later had a plaque set up in tribute of the four policemen who died when helping to suppress the attempted 1923 putsch against him and during the Nazi period raised a massive bronze plaque...

Feldherrnhalle had been built in the 1840's to honor the Bavarian army, in particular two leaders Graf Tilly who led in the 30 years war and Karl Wrede who fought Napolean. It is said to have been modelled behind Loggia dei Lanzi in the Piazza Delia Signoria in Florence which I happened to have also visited. Yes the set up... More
