The square is very interesting because there are three buildings that look like they were taken from ancient Greece. It is close to the old Pinacoteca.

A landmark square in Munich. Located between Propylaen Gate, the archeological museum Glyptothek and the art museum Staatliche Antikensammlungen. Built in the 19th century in European neoclassicism. I visited during a public holiday so museums were all closed but I think it can be a nice spot when the museums are open.

Nice historic square, felt like I was in Greece Italy. Many nice stone buildings here and a centre of cultural venues. Overall worth visiting but there are better places here.

It's a nice square surrounded by neoclassical buildings, a couple of which house museums. When the weather is nice, a good place to hang out.

Interesting 19th century historic square, with historic Nazi associations. When we visited there was a fair filling the area, which was there for the Summer and children were having great fun. On two of the sides are two museums, one of which we visited, and have reviewed separately. Essentially a large public space with structures in the neoclassical style, but more famous in the modern era as it was used for large Nazi rallies in the 1930's, and Hitler attended many of these. On one side you can find the foundation remains of the honour temples. Very nearby still stands the "Fuhrerbau" where the munich agreement was signed in 1938 - it's now a music school.

The Königsplatz is part of the overall ensemble of Brienner Straße. The square in the style of European classicism is a center of cultural life and is considered one of the main works of the Ludovizian "Isar-Athens".

Architecturally, the Königsplatz symbolized the connection between Bavaria and Greece. It consists of the 3 buildings - Propylaea, Glyptothek and Antique Collection.
The Propylaea are said to be the link to Greece and the gateway to the future. The Glyptothek is said to be the culmination of cultural work in the form of a temple. In the south of the square, the building designed according to the Corinthian order houses the State Antique Collections.

Certainly one of the beautiful and visitable places in Munich, which is also on the way to the Königsplatz.

Konigsplatz is inspired by ancient Greece, as it was trendy in this time to build copying the old Greeks in order to show the high culture of your town - and yourself as true heirs of Green culture. There are just a few better examples of historicist styles than Munich with its Konigsplatz

Recently spent a few days in Munich and enjoyed passing through Königsplatz viewing the Greek and Roman architectural buildings on this public square. Königsplatz is a 19th-century public project designed by German architect, Leo von Klenze at the request of King Ludwig I.

The square represents the three orders of ancient Greek and Roman architecture, which you will see in the major buildings around the square. Propylaea is a grand city gate structure. Amongst other impressive decoration, it features Doric style columns, which are very nice to view from nearby or afar.

The nearby Glyptothek (Ancient Sculpture Museum) showcases architectural form of the Ionic Order. You will next find the Corinthian Order on display in the exterior architecture of the Staatliche Antikensammlungen (State Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities) just opposite Glypothek. Both museums also feature impressive column lined porticos that are enjoyable to view up close, particular for those who have interest in architecture.
