The Odeonsplatz is a large square in central Munich which was developed in the early 19th century by Leo von Klenze and is at the southern end of the Ludwigstraße, developed at the same time. The square is named for the former concert hall, the Odeon, on its northwestern side. The name Odeonsplatz has come to be extended to the parvis (forecourt) of the Residenz, in front of the Theatine Church and terminated by the Feldherrnhalle, which lies to the south of it. The square was the scene of a fatal gun battle which ended the march on the Feldherrnhalle during the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch.
The Odeonsplatz is located north of the Old Town, on the border between Altstadt-Lehel (to the east) and Maxvorstadt (to the west). On the west side, which is set back from the line of the Ludwigstraße, are the building of the Odeon (1826–28, now the Bavarian Ministry of the Interior) and the identical Palais Leuchtenberg (1817–21, now the Bavarian State Ministry of Finance), both modelled on the Palazzo Farnese in Rome. On the east side is Klenze's Bazaar Building, including the Café Tambosi. Between the two buildings on the west side, an unnamed street leads to the Palais Ludwig Ferdinand (1825–26, now the headquarters of Siemens). Both this street and the Brienner Straße, which begins at the south end of the square, lead to the adjacent Wittelsbacherplatz, also designed by Klenze.

Very beautiful square in Munich and one of the must-see sightseeing spots of the city. Nearby you can find many small (also hidden) cafes to make a pause and relax. HOFGARDEN is also just there.

Summer is best time to visit this place and around. But it will be too crowded even in winter you will a lot of people around this place. You can find big mall and if you are brand lover then don't worry there are plenty of top brand's shop also with all type of verity restaurants. But in Munich you should try Bavarian food you won't regret it. This place is easy to access from sbhn and ubhn.

If you've visited the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence, you'll be very familiar with the Feldhernhalle at Odeonsplatz! Impressive square with gorgeous architecture of the beautiful Theatine Church and the Residenz. Must see if you visit Munich!

A place to visit very rich historically & beautifully at same time. Must visit place if you are in Munich near Marienplatz.

My favorite church in Munich. The church is a most beautiful baroque building which is unique because of the almost all white interior and so fully decorated in the baroque style. A pleasure and a must to visit for travelers.

A large square located to the north of Marienplatz. Surrounded by the Resident München, Felherrnhalle, and Theatinerkirche, it’s a great place to snap a few photos of famous Munich sights. There are a few restaurants nearby, but otherwise there’s not much to do here. It will probably not take more than 15-30 minutes to look around, reference a guidebook about the buildings surrounding the square, and take a few photos. Worth a stop if you’re into architecture or passing by for one of the nearby attractions.

Not really a place that is worth a detour to visit. Has a few nice shops though, I guess. Currently heavily under construction so somewhat chaotic.

Worth seeing. Nice place to walk to the center or the university zone.
