When Adolf Hitler first tried his Austrian take over this was where the first stand was made and also where he was first defeated. Later when he came to power as German Chancellor this is where he returned to make his mark.

Everyone who passed through Odeonsplatz during Hitler’s reign was forced to do the Nazi salute, which lead many to boycott the square altogether - bypassing it via a nearby alley.

I saw the square twice when we were in Munich. First, during the Oktoberfest Parade we stood along the sidewalk watching the various floats and wagons pulled by horse or oxen. Second, on one of our last nights in the city we ate at Spatenhaus brewpub at sunset.

Lots of large mustard colored buildings...what they don't tell you...and there are no signs...is that this is where a certain despicable frail little monster with a mustache used to give his hateful speeches. Again, no sign of it whatsoever...Now...just a bunch of clean oversized mustard colored buildings

A public area directly next to the Rezidenz. A closed brick roadway only for walking.

It's a nice square where there are several events. If you're there you should visit the Theatinerkirche, it's beautiful!

Der Odeonsplatz beherbergt eine Kirche im italienischen Spaetbarock und Muenchens aeltestes Café, wo man seit 1775 Kaffee und Kuchen mit Blick auf den wunderschoenen Platz geniessen kann. Er ist die noerdliche Begrezung der Fussgaengerzone. Rund um den Platz sind die königliche Residenz und Hofgarten, die Theatinerkirche und die Feldherrnhalle angesiedelt.

una delle piazze principali, non particolarmente bella, spicca il giallo ocra della chiesa.
