Entitled – Munich. The Carolinen-Platz.
Below the picture an inscription reads:
Munich. – This important city and famous art centre is reached in five hours from the Bohemian capital; its population numbers about 169,478.
Munich is situated on the rapid Isar, on the south side of a sterile plain fifty square miles in extent.
The lofty site of the city and its proximity to the Alps render it liable to sudden changes of temperature.
The Max Josephs – Platz, situated near the line which divides the old quarters from the new, is the centre of business in Munich.
On the north side of this Platz is situated the Royal Palace, which is divided into three sections, the chief one of these being the Alte Residenz, erected in 1616.
One of the bed-chambers in this section of the Palace contains a bed valued at 800,000 florins.
The apartments in the Konigsbau, another wing, have rather curious names, such as the Hall of Marriage, and the Halls of Treachery, Mourning, and Revenge.
The Hof-und-National Theater, on the east side of the Max Josephs-Platz, is the largest in Germany.
It is 115ft. high, 190ft. broad, and 225ft. deep; the stage measures 115ft. by 95ft., and the theatre seats 2,500 persons.
Many of the principal buildings in Munich are modelled from the architectural glories of Rome and Florence.
Our view shows the Carolinen-Platz, in the centre of which is an obelisk 105ft. high, partly cast from thirty-one tons of metal obtained from captured gune.
The Barer-Strasse to the right leads to the Old and New Pinakothek, the former containing 1,400 picures, arranged in nine saloons.
The old Rathhaus is in the Marien-Platz, in the middle of the old town.
Here, too, is the Frauenkirche, a brick cathedral, 357ft. long and 131ft. broad, with uncompleted towers 357ft. high, which are covered with unsightly, helmet-shaped roofs.
