The Feldherrnhalle (Field Marshals' Hall) is a monumental loggia on the Odeonsplatz in Munich, Germany. Modelled after the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence, it was commissioned in 1841 by King Ludwig I of Bavaria to honour the tradition of the Bavarian Army.
In 1923, it was the site of the brief battle that ended Hitler's Beer Hall Putsch. During the Nazi era, it served as a monument commemorating the death of 16 members of the Nazi party.

A grand monument packed with history. Our visit was spoiled by the excessive and persistent amount of beggars and scammers trying to distract us.

Top 10 in Munich. So much history packed on this square. Have a good read before and during being there. Check the old photos to have a feel of what happened on this place over 60 years ago

Not many people know that there was a plate hanged on the left side of the monument. It was the place where assasination was done to Hitler. Have you ever wondered why one of the lions have their mouth open and the other one closed? Just look around, the answer is there.

Lots of history, plenty of pictures and not a bad spot to take a break while walking around. On the hot day we were there the shade was more than welcome. Who could ask for more😀

Feldherrnhalle (General's Hall) is a loggia built in honour of the heroes of Bavaria. It is designed in the manner of the famous Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence, Italy. Like the Loggia dei Lanzi, Feldherrnhalle is a large open hall with several sculptures. You'll see statues of Count Tilly, military leader of the 30 Years War and Count von Wrede, marshal of the Bavarian Napoleonic era in the side niches. In centre is a large bonze sculpture dedicated to the Bavarian army of Ferdinand von Miller the Younger. It is nice seeing the monuments. We didn't care for the lack of care of the landmark however. There was quite a bit of trash scattered upon the hall. The two side niches were chained off from access as well. If you like monuments and statues, it is convenient to make a stop to see Feldherrnhalle as part of your visit to Residenz and the beautiful Theatinerkirche (St. Cajatan's Church) which occupies space on Odensplatz.

it reminds me of the piazza next to palazo vecchio in Florence. Check it out before heading to Dukes palace
