    Description:

    The Bassai (Bassae) frieze original is in the British Museum (room 16).

    The Glyptothek was commissioned by the Crown Prince (later King) Ludwig I of Bavaria alongside other projects, such as the neighboring Königsplatz and the building which houses the State Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities, as a monument to ancient Greece. He envisioned a “German Athens”, in which the ancient Greek culture would be remembered; he had this built in front of the gates of Munich. The layout …

    Description:

    This Baroque style fountain (named Liebfrauenbrunnen), was erected on the Liebfrauenberg, formerly one of Frankfurt’s most posh locations, in 1769. The conical centre of the fountain consists of a rustic obelisk, copied (restored) by Kurt Zobel in 1970.

    Description:

    The oldest church in Koblenz, built between 817 and 836 by Hetto, the Archbishop of Trier with the support of Emperor Louis the Pious. Negotiations at the monastery of St. Castor in 862 led to territorial changes, which was part of the evolution of the Carolingian Empire into an Eastern and a Western Empire, from which the Holy Roman Empire (and eventually Germany) and France developed. The reconstruction of the church to its present shape and size began about 1160 under Provost Buvo. The ste…

    Description:

    The two parts (gabled wings) of the Rathaus are connected by an arched passageway; the street level arch is on the left.

    The Rathaus has a gabled south façade, the left gable belonging to the 13th-century wing, the right to the Renaissance wing (1570-1578) by Leonhard Weidmann; the rusticated loggia was added in 1681. Opinions vary concerning the extent to which Weidmann’s scheme was followed, as he did not qualify as a master craftsman until 1575. The town hall, one of the finest in Fra…

    Description:

    The patron was King Ludwig I of Bavaria. The Ludwigskirche was a unique achievement of its time, the answer to Gärtner’s quest for a style that could develop the artistic possibilities he believed were concealed in early medieval architecture. The mature solution was a basilica with transept and a rectangular choir, the street façade dominated by tall, elegant, twin towers; the parsonage and Gärtner’s own house were connected to the entrance façade by round-arched arcades, giving a ho…

    Description:

    Prince Luitpold of Bavaria (Prince Regent 1886-1912) commissioned Thiersch to build the Munich Justizpalast. The first sketches for it were in an Italian High Renaissance style, but he soon decided to execute the building (1890-97) in the livelier and increasingly fashionable Baroque Revival style. The grandiose, well-lit Treppenhaus (stairhall) under the huge glass dome is unequalled in the secular architecture of the time. The effect is heightened by the rich stucco ornamentation and colour…

The town hall, one of the finest in Franconia, reconciles the traditional high gabled façade with the heavily stressed horizontals of the long side elevation, ex…
