The Maximiliansanlagen Munich are a green oasis at the eastern bank of the Isar. The central point is the 38 meter high Angel of Peace monument. Built between 1856 and 1861 at the suggestion of King Maximilian II, the park offers many charming views on the silhouette of the city. The area was previously used as sheep pasture and the slopes were partly heavily eroded. The approximately 30-acre, elongated park has numerous terraces. The Prinzregentenstraße as well the Max-Planck-Straße cut through the park. Over time, the authorities included the Gasteiganlagen located south of the Maximilianeum in the Maximiliansanlagen. This part is now used as a municipal sports facility.

Joggers and Monuments

Via the König-Ludwig-Weg in the Maximiliansanlagen Munich you will reach the 1967 erected monument to King Ludwig II by Anton Rückel. It stands near the site of the never-built Münchner Festspielhaus. North of the Angel of Peace stands the Josef Ruederer fountain from 1920. From the hillside on Georgskirche you can look over the magnificent Königswiese to the villas of Bad Brunnthal.

The park is a famous spot or joggers and walkers. In winter the people of Munich like to come here for sledge riding.
