Max-Joseph-Platz is a stunning square, which is surrounded by stunning architecture, most notably the Munich Opera House and The Munich Residence, a must visit.

The Max-Joseph-Platz is one of the stops on the hop on hop off tour, just after the Marienplatz stop. I stopped and spent some time here, because I enjoy being surrounded by old buildings and architecture. I sat on the steps of the National Theatre...More

This is a very busy and lively square as it is in the intersection of the Residence, Opera House and Maximilian Street. So many things to see and lots of ‘action’ in this area.

From Marienplatz to Max-JHoseph-Platz, a 5 minutes walk. Night and day it is worth. The city opera is located there.

OK, perhaps not the only one but I love this square as it contains the historic Residenz, the Opera House, and some bars and restaurants. Close to lots of shops and it has underground parking. A must see if you are new to the City.
