  • This is a pretty cool building. I'm not sure of the historical significance, but it's beautiful.
  • This monument stands in tribute to Maximilian I Joseph, the first king of Bavaria. This bronze statue has a prominent place at the middle of the partly pedestrianised square name after him, Max-Joseph-Platz. Under his reign, Maximilian Joseph left a legacy of Secularization that led to the nationalisation of cultural assets of the Church and the emancipation of Protestants. The statue depicts the king in Roman outfit and seated on a neo-classical chair. In his left arm he holds a sceptre symbolising his rule. His right hand is raised in a gesture of peace. It's a nice enough statue and you can't fail to miss it if visiting the square or the Residence Museum.
