Munich's Maxvorstadt Quarter

It's worth a visit!


An example for Munich’s ugly architectural heritage from the Nazis, at the same time a place where an infamous chapter of European history had been written: In this building Hitler, Mussolini, Chamberlain and Daladier sealed the fate of Czechoslovakia in the fall of 1938 by first dismembering its western parts and in March 1939 occupying the rest of the country while Great Britain and France stood by idly. Both the “Führerbau” and its almost identical counterpart on the other side of Brienner Straße, the “Verwaltungsbau” (Administrative Building) are housing educational institutions today . Where once Hitler started to set the world on fire, now the students of the academy of music train their skills.
