Munich Justizpalast: A Brief History

The Munich Justizpalast was designed in Neo-Baroque style by architect Friedrich von Thiersch, and was built in 1890-1897. The palatial and majestic design of the building is what makes it one of the grandest buildings to gawk at in Munich (or maybe even Germany).

Of course, this gorgeous building is more than just an underrated spot for sightseeing, today it serves as the seat of the Bavarian Ministry of Justice.
