This city’s history is provided today’s tourist with some fascinating landmarks. Hi, I'm Rebecca Brayton and welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’ll be checking out some Munich’s top attractions.
Built for the 1972 Summer Olympic Games that took place in Munich, the city’s Olympia Park is now a great tourist drop for visitors of the area and a venue for various activities. Found within the park are a variety of Olympic facilities as well as the Olympic Village, Olympia Turm Tower and the main stadium.
When it was built, the Olympic Stadium was the epiphany of modernity. The roof is made of translucent acrylic and a curve design was modeled after the Alps. This modern touch is a distinctive feature of the stadium.
The city’s Victualan Market or victuals market is found in the heart of Munich. Open daily, this market morphed from a farmer’s market in the early 19th century to a popular location for fresh produce and deli ingredients today. Your senses are sure to be stimulated as you walk past colorful stalls. It is famous for featuring a variety of rare and difficult to find ingredients and has an assortment of stalls featuring anything from herbs and spices to fish, wine and tea. Spread over roughly 240,000 square feet, the market is renowned for its size and diversity.
One of the symbols of Munich is the Cathedral of Our Dear Lady or Frauenkirche. This church’s towers are noticeable throughout the city because of imposed building height limits making it a striking addition to the skyline. While the church was consecrated in 1494, it was only roughly 30 years later that its famous domes were added giving it the defining characteristics for which it is known. The buildings façade dominates the area and is a beautiful example of medieval architecture.
Built in the late 19th century, the Wittelsbacher Fountain is an architectural masterpiece that is found in a city of Munich. The statues adorning this work of art are meant to symbolize both the devastating force of water as well as its positive strength. It was built to monitor the erection of a new town water supply system and is a great example of classical art found in the city. From religious attractions to more modern date parks, Munich is packed with remarkable landmarks.
