“Impressive architecture from the late 19th century”
Review of Justizpalast

A landmark building in Munich is Justizpalast (Palace of Justice) at Karlsplatz. This is a courthouse complex constructed near the end of the 19th century in Neo-Baroque manner.

Having survived WWII almost fully intact, Justizpalast provides a nice opportunity of architecture that was popular at that time. We quite enjoyed viewing the tall, decorative facades. Nice statue figures can be seen atop the Avant-corps of the building while small obelisks are situated atop its four corners.

It is an impressive building exterior to view. If skies are blue, it is a nice landmark building to photograph as well. We didn't realise a visit to the inside was possible until after our trip. That has been saved for our next visit to Munich.

Note: It is also worth spending a few minutes to enjoy the Neues Justizgebaude (New Palace of Justice) building right next door. This is a brown brick, Neo-gothic style building with impressive step gables and a great clock face.

This building is very large and visually imposing. The architecture is stunning. We didn't have time to look inside, but I understand it is free.

Palace of Justice dominates the west side of the famous Karlsplatz Square (Stachus). The walking distance from Marienplatz (Mary's Square) is about 900 metres. This magnificent neo-baroque gem of the city of Munich was constructed between 1890 and 1897. Worth a visit!

One of the few historic 19th century buildings to survive WW2 bombing, this is a fine example of the architecture of that era.

Unfortunately it was too early in the day to go inside but other reviewers have mentioned the famous courtroom where the White Rose group were tried.
