  • Our VHS had offered - free of charge - a visit to the Maximilianeum. We were happy to take part. First we were led into a hall, which showed a brand new film about the history and task of the Maximilianeum. Informative - striking. Then we were able to go to the plenary (photos unfortunately not allowed) to listen to a government statement by Markus S. Unfortunately there was no time for counter-speech etc. ... because the next groups of visitors were already knocking loudly at the front door .. Then to the casino for lunch and then - about 1 - 1 1/2 hours time to "hole" Doris Rauscher. A farewell photo on the stairs of the Landtag and we took the bus - well-informed - back to our homeland. She's it.

  • It's a big hilltop building that you'll always see when you walk down Maximilian Street. It stands out outstandingly, so don't overlook it. The design of the corridor is also good atmosphere. It's worth a visit to Munich because it overlooks the city of Munich.

  • Maximum architectural beauty. This is a historic building, built in 1874 by order of the King of Bavaria, Maximilian the Second. Since 1949, the Bavarian Parliament has been sitting in front part of the building. You can get inside exclusively in a group tour by prior arrangement. In general, this is a huge and very beautiful building, which was built in the neo-Gothic style and under the influence of Semper in the Renaissance style to many individual elements.
  • The Maximilianeum, a palatial building in Munich, was built as the home of a gifted students' foundation and has also housed the Bavarian Landtag (state parliament) since 1949. The principal was King Maximilian II of Bavaria, who started the project in 1857. The leading architect was Friedrich Bürklein. The building is situated on the bank of river Isar before the Maximilian Bridge and marks the eastern end of the Maximilianstrasse, one of Munich's royal avenues which is framed by neo-Gothic palaces influenced by the English Perpendicular style. Due to statical problems the construction was only completed in 1874 and the facade of the Maximilianeum, which was originally planned also in neo-Gothic style, had to be altered in renaissance style under the influence of Gottfried Semper. The facade was decorated with arches, columns, mosaics and niches filled with busts. The building was extended on its back for new parliament offices, and several modern wings were added in 1958, 1964, 1992 and again in 2012.
