On the trail of Italian art and architecture in Munich
Not without reason is Munich called the northernmost city in Italy. Ludwig I and his court architect Leo von Klenze were enthusiastic about Italian architecture, which they brought to Munich with their buildings, squares and entire streets.

Whether the Residenz, the Feldherrenhalle, the Palais an der Oper, Ludwigstraße or the Hofgarten - Munich with its buildings, arcades and gates, inner courtyards with fountains and sculptures spread a Mediterranean flair and bring Italy to life. We take a look at where the Italian Renaissance left its mark. A tune-up for your next visit to Munich!
