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.
Every once in a while a book comes along that changes your life.
Until it does, please consider buying Destination Munich and Bavaria, the grooviest, most informative guide on the market :-)
It'll give you full-colour maps, practical info and hundreds of tips on how to get the most out of your visit.
It's 227 pages of up-to-the-minute travel intelligence and it can be yours as an eBook for less than the price of an Oktoberfest beer. (read on)
