  Stairs to Antiquity
by pedersdottir

Bavaria's King Ludwig I loved undertaking building projects on an Olympian scale. On this, the King's Square, Munich visitors are treated to an exposition of classic Greek architecture. This gateway, the Propylaen are styled like early Doric gates of ancient Athens. Look closely at the other 2 buildings nearby and see if you recognize their lines.

Koenigsplatz begins at the intersection of Luisenstrasse and Briennerstrasse.
