Odeonsplatz (Odeon Square in French) is a city square in Munich, Germany. It marks the southern end of Ludwigstraße and is located in the Siegestor, Ludwigstraße, Odeonsplatz alignment. Its name comes from the concert hall (Odeon) that King of Bavaria Louis I built at the southwest corner of the square in 1827.
The square marks the delimitation between the areas of Maxvorstadt (in the north) and Altstadt-Lehel (in the south). The square is bounded on the west by the former Odeon and Leuchtenbergpalais and on the east by the Basargebaeude (where the traditional Tambosi Café is located). Over the years, the name of Odeonsplatz was also used to designate the forecourt of the Feldherrnhalle, which is in the continuation of the square, between the Theatine church and the Residenz. To the south are two pedestrian streets (Residenzstraße in the east and Theatinerstraße in the west) from the square. Northbound is the long Ludwigstraße. © Photo of Emmanuel Buchot
