The Maximilianeum a fantastic government building in Munich

The Munich Maximilianeum building completed in 1874 is not only the seat of the Bayers Parlement but also of the foundation for gifted students. It is located near the ISAR in front of the Maximiliansbrücke. The facade of the building is in fact a giant display of paintings informing us about some important historic moments and personalities. On the roof you find statues and above the window arches, marmel busts. When we took the garden picture near the fountain we saw two security people coming in our direction. We quickly requested some information about the building and inquired if we could enter for a visit. The answer was a polite no!!! Pity.

Het Maximilianeum gebouw in München werd voltooid in 1874 en is de zetel van het Beierse Parlement en tevens de stichting voor hoogbegaafde studenten. Het is aan de ISAR gelegen recht tegenover de Maximiliansbrücke. De gevel van het gebouw is in feite een grote voorstelling van schilderijen die historische momenten en figuren uitbeelden. Op het dak vind je standbeelden en boven de booggewelven van de ramen, marmeren borstbeelden. Toen we de fontein foto maakten stonden we in de tuin en werden we benaderd door twee mensen van de beveiliging. We vroegen hen snel wat informatie over het gebouw en of het mogelijk was het aan de binnenzijde te bezoeken. Het antwoord was een beleefde Neen!!! Spijtig..
