From the observation deck on Luitpold Hill you have an ingenious view of Munich. The hill was formed from the rubble of Munich. The city recieved heavy damage during during the Second World War. In good weather you can even see the Alps from the top of the hill. Another highlight in this over one hundred year old park for is the delightful Bamberg house at the west entrance. Built in 1912 from parts of a residential building in Bamberg, it was destroyed during the Second World War, then completely rebuilt in 1983. It is the only building in Munich that has characteristics of Franconian Baroque.
