City Center (Marienplatz/Karlsplatz/ Odeonsplatz/Konigsplatz)
Marienplatz is the very heart of Munich and is always full of crowds who are being entertained by street performers and musicians. This square is dedicated to the patron of the city, whose golden statue stands on top of a huge column (the Mariensaule) in the center of the square. The city's most beautiful square, Odeonsplatz is located to the north. Travelling west from Odeonsplatz you will come to the wide shopping avenue, Briennerstrasse. This avenue will lead you to Konigsplatz, which is a large Grecian square. Located around this square are three classical buildings constructed by Ludwig I, namely, the Propylaen, the Glyptothek, and the Antikensammlungen.
