Munich is a city of rich history, and its architecture carries the memories of the past. In the 1930s, the city was transformed into the capital of the Nazi movement. You will see the buildings constructed under the orders of Hitler and learn about the most somber period of German history. This is a true time travel because you will find a severe-looking black obelisk on Karolinenplatz only a few feet away, honoring the Bavarian soldiers who perished during the Napoleonic campaign in the early 19th century. Then, you will pass by the modern 21-century building which houses the superb Pinakothek der Moderne – it exhibits contemporary art, from Expressionism and Picasso to the present day. The tour will end in the beautiful area inspired by the Italian Renaissance – Wittelsbacherplatz. After seeing these festive façades, you will surely be amazed by Munich's diversity.
