Residenz Palace is a prominent architectural landmark of the city. For many years the palace has been the main residence of the Dukes of Bavaria. The palace was built in 1385. Nowadays its luxurious rooms provide space to two museums - an archaeological and a historical one. The royal treasury also attracts tourists. Once you visit it, you can walk along the beautiful terrace of the palace. Nymphenburg palace, the building of which was completed in 1664, is another charming old building. The halls and corridors of the palace are decorated with beautiful paintings, some of which were applied immediately after the construction of the building. The palace is surrounded by a magnificent English park, which is a prominent tourist attraction itself.
Hall of Fame (Siegestor) is one of the symbols of the city. The look of the building resembles the famous Arc de Triomphe. The landmark has one more name - the "Victory Gateway". The monument, which is dedicated to the brave Bavarian troops, has been built by order of Ludwig I. The suburban area of Munich is the location of Bavaria statue - the main symbol of the country. The opening of the monument took place in 1850. Since that time the grand Germanic character captured by the sculptor has become a major national symbol of this region.
