Munich’s grand Konigsplatz (correctly: Königsplatz) has played many roles. Stepping onto this huge, grassy square I can’t help but feel just a wee bit too small.
It’s anchored by three classical buildings: The Propyläen, a symbolic entrance, the Antikensammlungen (State Antiques Collection) and the Glyptothek (an ancient Greek and Roman sculpture collection).
Directions: Konigsplatz is a 10-minute walk north of the Hauptbahnhof along Luisen Strasse.
