Odensplatz Memorial is steeped in history going back over 100 years. It’s a seminal political and cultural location in the middle of Munich where so much of the 20th century history was written. From the Kaiser through Hitler to the modern day Germany this storied...More

This is a fascinating square with so much history including the place where Hitler's failed beer putsch took place and people were forced to salute.

This large square is well worth visiting and is surrounded by quite a few buildings with a variety of architecture. Interestingly Hitler gave quite a few speeches at this square.

Odeonsplatz is a public square with proximity to Residenz and Hofsgarten. Perhaps best known as location of Hitler's Putsch, a failed coup attempt by Adolf Hitler and the early Nazi party in 1923. Today you will find attractive buildings, concert hall, equestrian monument to Ludwig...More

This place is a bit eerie if you look at some footage of the speeches that Hitler gave from the columns. In fact, when modern leaders, like Angela Merkel, give speeches here, they do it from the side, away from the steps in order to...More
