Description

The metropolis in southern Germany is one of the Federal Republic's most prominent hotbeds of architecture. The stellar ascent of Munich to the capital of Bavaria began in 1158 when it was granted the status of market town. Its architectural landmarks range from the Cathedral of Our Dear Lady and the Residence to the Allianz-Arena and the BMW World, the most famous examples of recent architecture. The experts Nicolette Baumeister and Chris van Uffelen take readers on a journey of discovery across all architectural eras. In addition to the most important 300 buildings in Munich itself, the book also presents around 90 architectural masterpieces in Bavaria, one of Germany's most popular tourist destinations. The chronologically structured chapters and the colored illustrations vividly present the characteristic features of each era. In addition to individual buildings, important ensembles and the key architects of Munich are featured.
