this large square in central munich was built by king ludwig I. the square is flanked by three classical greek buildings. at the west end of the square stands the proplaen, (pictured) it was inspired by the entrance to the acropolis in athens. on the north side of the square is the glypothek and on the south side of the square is the antikensammlungen. both of these buildings house museums. the glypothek has a collection of greek and roman sculpture and the antikensammlungen specializes in small works of ancient art. during the years of the third reich the konigsplatz was paved over and used for rallies and military parades.
