Sightseeing in Munich

Palace
“The Munich Residence served as the seat of government and residence of the Bavarian dukes, electors and kings from 1508 to 1918. What began in 1385 as a castle in the north-eastern corner of the city (the Neuveste, or new citadel), was transformed by the rulers over the centuries into a magnificent palace, its buildings and gardens extending further and further into the town. The rooms and art collections spanning a period that begins with the Renaissance, and extends via the early Baroque and Rococo epochs to Neoclassicism, bear witness to the discriminating taste and the political ambition of the Wittelsbach dynasty. http://www.residenz-muenchen.de/englisch/residenc/index.htm ”

Monument / Landmark
“Siegestor is a three-arched triumphal arch crowned with a statue of Bavaria with a lion-quadriga. The gate was originally dedicated to the glory of the Bavarian army (dem bayerischen Heere zum Ruhme). Today, the Siegestor is a monument and reminder to peace. After sustaining heavy damage in World War II it was to be demolished in July 1945. The new inscription on the back side by Wilhelm Hausenstein says "Dedicated to victory, destroyed by war, urging peace". ”
